Boasting cosigns from Erykah Badu and Amanda Seales (formerly Diva), up-and-coming rhymesayer Chels introduces herself to our readers with freshly-released single/mixtape standout The Lesson. Here, Swiff D.‘s headphone-ready sample work sets the mood as the 20-year-old New Orleans native shares a little worldly wisdom. Ace Boogie assists, contributing a flowed hook. Feeling it? The Lesson is just the beginning of the dope material to be found on Chels’ True School For The Moon Children (TSFTMC) tape, released February 1, and downloadable in full from the artist’s Bandcamp page.
