    Charles Stewart aka Chachille has been a close friend and inspiration to me since I was 17, now 29. When I first witnessed him rhyme, I knew he would become one of hip-hop’s greatest artists. I soon followed in his footsteps and started writing rhymes myself.
    From cyphers on the streets of downtown Asheville, sittin’ in the local coffee shops with our headphones, pens & pads, to stage performances as featured MC’s- Chach has led the way for many Asheville MC’s and music producers, provided much encouragement and invaluable inspiration, demonstrated unbelievable dedication and determination…and has made us all proud to see him gainin’ more and more momentum to the TOP!
    Listen closely to his words, my friends. This ain’t yo ordinary hip-hop.
    This is Revolution.
    Prepare for Goosebumps!
