The Royal Chief
The Royal Chief
Trailblazer - that’s what they call the Royal Chief. As an emerging rap artist, he has been re-defining words and style, bringing a renewed sense of “life” to hip hop.

Born in Kansas city, Missouri as Jamel Thompson to a single mother, the Chief is the youngest of six - two brothers on his mother’s side and another brother and twin sisters from his father. Growing up, his mother fostered his mind; she encouraged the Chief to read relentlessly and to experiment with his talents. This prompted a period where the Royal Chief began expressing himself by writing stories. His father was also hugely involved in his life, and the Royal Chief spent his tim with his dad playing sports - even being coached by him in the city’s RBI baseball league. The Royal Chief spent most of his early life in the urban areas of Kansas City. He and his mother moved to Dallas, Texas briefly before returning to Kansas City - to the suburbs - which provided an interesting contrast to his life before.

It has been widely believed among his family, friends and followers that the Royal Chief was a rising superstar - most people thought it was his affinity for sports that would put him there. But, at the age of 13, after attending a concert in which Kanye West performed, the Chief knew his path was in music and began rapping. Courtesy of his mother, he drew inspiration from R&B and soul. While his introduction to hip hop came from his father and brothers. His favorite rap artist were - Eminem, Tupac, Kanye West, and Ludacris. They all were a source of inspiration and helped form his style. Rap became a love and an outlet for him - a way to vent and document how he perceived the world. It was also an instrument for the Royal Chief to cope with the pain of losing both his older brother and God mother who had a hand in raising him.

The Royal Chief moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 2012 where he has been diligently focus on his music. His first project “ Trial & Erorr” was released in May of 2015. He released his second project, a EP entitled “Dawn” in September of 2016.
