The Street Chiefs are a six man rap group originating in the San Fernando Valley. They are sure
to bring a new flavor of rap to the west coast hip hop scene. The Street Chiefs have been
referred to as the new west coast trendsetters. The group has been together officially since
late 1997. Going through the many ups and downs of the music
industry the Street Chiefs made
plans on becoming more than just artist. They
did some internal reconstruction and decided to start their own record label,
D.R.A.F.T. U. Records. D.R.A.F.T
U. is composed of the first
letter of every member name in the group. Dala,
Ransom, Antagoniss, Federal, Triflon and Unleash.
The Streetchiefs have performed in countless showcases through out Las Vegas and the Los
Angeles area. They have headlined with Mr. Cheeks at
the Crush Bar in Los Angeles.
They most recently headlined with Amanda Perez at the Key Club in Hollywood.
Streetchiefs were also the featured unsigned artist on the website
Farmclub.com. Farmclub.com was a website that was designed to help give
unsigned musical artist a spotlight. The national syndicated show Farmclub.com

casting the votes. The StreetChiefs gathered a total of 7,168 votes. Their
performance was so good that the producers of the show decided to air it the
same day they aired interviews of the musical artist at the 2001 Soul Train
Awards. The StreetChiefs are will be
featured on the cover of the December, 2003 issue of Undiscovered a new hip-hop
Bo, formerly Yung-Dala, is the youngest
member of the Street Chiefs. His youthful energy and on stage antics is what
makes people want to see the Street Chiefs live. He is also known for his
freestyle ability. His laid-back, slightly rugged delivery allows you to walk
in his footsteps. He may no longer be referred to as “Yung-Dala”, but he is definitely the "Yung
gun" of the tribe.
was the spark that started the inferno which made the Street Chiefs more
business orientated. He began buying studio equipment and setting it up in
his apartment bathroom, since then Federal has become the main producer for
the Streetchiefs. He is also active on
the lyrical side of things, bringing
the street perspective and everyday hustle to the table.
Qualo the oldest member brings a sense of maturity to the group's vibe. He is
described as the vocal leader, the mouth piece of the group by the other
members. The poetical overtones in his lyrical content have a way of making
you see things through his eyes. Qualo also calls himself the Antagoniss,
whom he says was created to act in opposition to the business side of the rap
game. Qualo is responsible for designing and maintaining the website
Next we have Ransom who is self described as the catalyst of the group.
Ransom is a perfectionist, who pays a great deal of attention to the small
details. His lyrical content has
a ways of consuming the audience and his
high-impact style of delivery always seems to
provoke some sort of emotion.
Ransom is also a producer for the group.
Triflon who is the founding father of the Street Chiefs. Triflon's
smooth harmonic flow helps
to smooth out the rough edges of the group's vibe.
His lyrical content has been described as simple but the intensity of his
delivery is what captures your attention. Triflon is the accent mark, the
exclamation point for the Street Chiefs.
Unleash, was the last member to join the group. He has earned a tremendous
amount of respect for his rap style. His ability to rap without rhyming, but
you usually don’t figure that
out until you have heard his verse three
or four times. Unleash’s delivery is a
to his stage name. But once you listen to the content of his
verses you understand how
he got the name “Unleash”. He is also
credited with creating the name Streetchiefs.
