What Is The Surf Club?
Hit-Boy: “Surf Club is a collective of young artists, writers, and producers. It’s a click and it’s the team. There are different entities within Surf Club. Everybody is kind of doing their own individual things, but it’s all filtered Surf Club. Anything to do with any member, you can find it on itsthesurfclub.com.
“The crew didn’t even really start on no music stuff. It started with me and [my friend] Chili Chil. When we were like 17, we used to just go to the mall to get at girls and we just called ourselves Surf Club.
“The way we explain [the name] is that an actual Surf Club is where people go to hang out. It’s just a cool, relaxed place. That’s what we embody—we’re cool, relaxed, chill people. Then Chili Chil actually started screaming out Surf Club when he would record songs so we just ran with it.”
Chase N. Cashe: “It’s really a brotherhood more than anything. I can honestly say that it’s the closest thing to Dipset and N.E.R.D mixed together that you can get. I would compare us to the Blackground era. Like how Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Ginuwine, Static, Aaliyah, Nicole Wray, and Magoo might have been on different labels, but they were always together and always working on each other’s projects.”
