Australian rap phenomenon ChillinIt has treated fans with his hotly-anticipated third body of work, FAMILY TIES. To celebrate the release, the rapper is set to appear at Culture Kings in Parramatta later this afternoon for an exclusive performance and meet-and-greet.
Made complete with his signature spitfire flow and commanding lyricism, FAMILY TIES arrives as the rappers most considered body of work to date. Meandering through a variety of themes, the core of the record centres itself around the camaraderie present within the rappers community and the importance and strength of family. The album also flexes ChillinIt considerable success since bursting on to the scene, offering introspective thoughts and ruminations, playing out atop pumping production and driving beats.
The collection of songs sees the musician team up with a number of collaborators, including Huskii, Dylan Frost, Lisi, Izzy Gibbs, Wombat and Bliss n Eso’s DJ IZM. ChillinIt enlisted his longtime collaborator Badrapper and his own brother and DJ bbrock on production duties, keeping the release a family affair.
Speaking of the release, the rapper shared: I could write u some story of deep growth and chat on my experience, and me becoming a man in front of the cameras. but for once it’s all on the music, I can let the numbers the placques ne all the worldwide recognition do the speaking for me, ladies gentlemen, it’s 21 songs of my proudest most diverse work, run this up family!

The record was heralded by its lead single, Susan's Son. The track is an ode to his family and those who have supported him throughout his career. The songs visual saw the rapper surprises his mother with $100,000 cheque.
