"Goosebumps on Pangea... doesn't just open, it launches into orbit."

- Alli Marshall; Mountain Xpress


"I predict CHACHILLIE is gonna be BIG! Remember I quoted that on Aug 5, 2012!"

– Nasty Nes; RapAttackLives.com


"Chachillie is rapping about what people should be rapping about"

- TC Izlam; Zulu Nation and Hollywood talk radio DJ


"This album is the proclamation of a person who is aligned with what he wants and is giving himself the right to paint his own life picture. his refusal to bow down to hype, stereotypes, past regret or other societal intrusions is priceless. the lyricism is sharp and necesary to be heard and reflects chachillie's deepest introspections yet. his phrasing and lyrical patterning is remenisent of some of the greatest MCs in Hip-Hop History and also embraces the unique flow of Memphis, Tennessee where Chachille was raised."

– Lucia White; DJ "Drop Beats Not Bombs" MAINFM 103.5







Charles Matthew Stewart, better known as Chachillie, was born into a musical home in Oklahoma City, OK, on June 1st 1983. His was a spiritual family as well, with his father being a minister of a small church. At the age of 2 his father moved their family to Memphis, TN to attend theological seminary. With Memphis being a hot bed for southern gangster rap as well as the home of the blues, this move would prove to be a significant factor in Chachillie’s emergence as a musician. He recalls of his early days there, “I remember Mom asking me what I learned in kindergarten one day and started beat boxing. I didn’t understand why she started laughing.” Chachillie’s mother was a teacher at an inner city elementary school in Memphis. She had a passion for making a difference, which Chachillie would later adopt, with music as his channel.

Chachillie developed an ear for music at a very early age, and by nine he was writing and recording his own rhymes into a fisher price recorder, and by 14 he’d acquired a drum machine and started banging out his own beats. During this time, in the fall of 1997, Chachillie’s mother died very suddenly of acute Leukemia. His father, who had always battled with alcoholism, went understandably off the deep end, leaving him and his brothers alone and essentially fending for themselves.

From this point on he pretty much raised himself, and spent a lot of his time traveling the east coast and honing his craft as a wordsmith and musician. Sometimes homeless and sometimes selling drugs to eat but music was never forgotten. Some of this time on the road was spent touring with Funk/Hip-Hop fusion band GFE, where he was mistakenly featured in XXL magazine as their front man “Angry Andy” (not an actual member of GFE). After experiences like Erykah Badu telling him “you were incredible” after a cipher at a private party, and being pulled aside to be commended by Afrika Bambaataa after performing at a Zulu Nation event… it was clear what path was unfolding.

At the end of 2010 Chachillie started working with Ben Gradison at D-Street Studios, recording other artists and working with Ben’s non-profit to set up music studios in impoverished regions of the world. It was clear that the two shared a similar calling to help make the world a better place, using music as the vehicle. In 2012 this mission has gone into full throttle with the slated official release of Chachillie's debut album "Goosebumps On Pangea". It's safe to say CHACHILLIE is ready for the world.
