On The Edge Presents: CHURCH CHIZZLE


Church Chizzle is a complete MC who possesses all the credentials that hip-hop legends are made of; Lyricism, Diversity, Great Flow, Raw Freestyle Skills, Creativity, Street Cred, & SWAG. Growing up in a Cooperative housing unit in Toronto, Church was known for his freestyle/battling abilities. Although he knew that one day he’d expose his creative song writing ability to the world by recording tracks he got caught up in the hustle to make ends meet and rap became a hobby, not a priority. In late 2008, the same hustle led to a tragic incident that left him fighting for his life with little signs of survival. To the surprise of even his doctors Church made a rapid recovery breathing new life into his childhood nickname, which became his rapper alias. Instilled with a sense of purpose Church returned to the scene ready to make a change. Jumping head first into music he was reached out to by a childhood friend who shared the same musical interests and a knack for business.
Almost 2 years later Church has released a debut mixtape titled ‘The Go To Church Mixtape’ and a music video for the single off the mixtape called ‘I’m Comin’. The video received twenty-thousand views on YouTube in the first month, which has helped Church to build a fan base that extends beyond Canada. He has also performed at over twenty different events some of which include, Urban Noise, North by North East (NxNE), D12 Superbowl, 106 & York, and Manifesto, as well as various underground showcases around the city. Much Music’s show, RapCity was in for a surprise when the artist by the name of Church Chizzle got on the “#FREESTYLE” segment and went on a winning streak. He reigned as champion for five weeks and eventually was retired as champ. Still hungry, Church continues to do as many showcases as possible with a love that is evident when watching him perform. The support has been incredible and has only increased with Church’s participation in The Remix Project’s recording arts program. There is no doubt that this is what Church was built for and there’s no looking back.
