A few years ago, West Philly rapper Chase Allen shattered his ankle in a car accident the summer before he was set to go to college on a football scholarship. When one door closes, another opens. Allen's rap career began that day. This morning, he released a new 15-track project called Far From Home.
"This is one of the biggest moments of my life right here," Allen says. "I'm excited to share this body of work with the world. As an artist, there's no better feeling than expressing yourself through your craft. Far From Home embodies everything about the mentality of the black community. Collectively it is the GPS for the lost soul. Until we all move on one accord, we will continue to be Far From Home."
