Pittsburgh's Chevy Woods isn't about to forget where he's from -- even as his longtime friend and collaborator Wiz Khalifa's career hits the stratosphere, Woods, a fellow Taylor Gang member, strives to keep things true to the streets he grew up on. That's why he picked rising star DeJ Loaf to join him on the unflinching track "All Said And Done."
"It's a personal song," Woods tells Billboard. "In some ways I got into a little trouble myself which made me realize how real that other side is. The song is my life in 3 minutes -- they're stories I've been waiting to tell and now I've got a platform to speak from."
Of working with DeJ, he says, "her voice brought it full circle. It wasn't necessary about the words she says, it's more about the feeling in her voice.
