On Episode 20(!!) of The Super Empty Show, Fayetteville singer Chlo The God stops by and teaches us a thing or two about the 2-6. 

You may not have heard of singer-songwriter Chlo The God before, but if her recent output and its reception is any indication, that won’t last much longer. Still building up a digital footprint after a dispute with a former producer led to the deletion of her entire SoundCloud, the 21-year-old Fayetteville native is hardly showing signs of being held up. With her debut album from 2017, “The Story Behind,” Chlo established herself as a gifted singer with a knack for great production, and her single later in the year, “Focus,” eliminated any doubt. The day after performing at Chubbz’s “Chemical X” show in Raleigh with ZenSoFly, Hasina and K. Mojica, she joined us in the Runaway store in Durham to discuss a range of topics from the potential end of SZA’s singing career, to how her hometown’s relationship with J. Cole has soured in recent years. (We also cover her career — and some exclusive Chlo The God rap bars — in between.) Before the interview, Alex, Ryan and Holland discuss Holland’s experience at the TDE Championship tour, the new album from Black Thought & 9th Wonder, and of course, the 7-song sigh that is Kanye West’s new album, Ye. This is a fun one — thank you to everyone who has listened, it’s been a fun-filled 20 weeks, here’s to 20 more!
