THE LONE WOLF
An individual that prefers to do things by their self. They work best alone. Someone who doesn’t care for having cooperation from others and often sees things different from the crowd norm. The Lone Wolf once belonged to a pack and could decide to walk with the group, but yet finds it easier to take care of themselves without social interaction. A person that lives for a goal in life, that gets the job done without looking at anyone for help performing the impossible by themselves. A one man army.
Tacoma, WA-based rapper Chuck Die$el presents the Chase Fade-directed music video "Living Lavish", the Jacky Clouds-produced new single from Die$el's forthcoming EP Love Wolf. Hailing from Ohio, Chuck has been spreading his 'Create Reality' philosophy through his previous EPs Adolescent Nights, Summer Sessions, and #TrapDiesel , and previous videos i "Sleazee"and "Homerun" This song is a feel good bop," Chuck says about the single. "I woke up feeling good and started singing to myself on the way to work. It reminds me of a summer day in the sun and having fun.”
Banging beats, airy vocals, and compact compound bars. Seems the Lone Wolf has done it again delivering this crispy visual as a follow up to Living Lavish. This song adds another layer to the artistry we've seen from the artist and is a nice showcase of versatility. Shot in downtown Seattle, its clear that the grit is still there and gives us a soft grunge feel in this video that even Cobain would be proud to see.

Ohio native born rapper Chuck Die$el provides some lush and lavish green waterfall visuals for the chill nod along. The song features calm lush sounds with a steady smooth flow from the artist. The perfect little melody for a long drive. The video was shot at Sweet Creek Waterfalls in Oregon.
Homerun is a big inspirational vibe. As soon as the first note hits it makes you feel hopeful. The song paints a picture of strength, striving, and resilience. Die$el brandishes a semi-colon pendant throughout the video. The grammar tool has been used to acknowledge struggles amongst the mental health community. Wearing the symbol acknowledges that no matter what life throws at you, as long as you're still here, your story isn't over. This song was Die$el reming people to hang in there, the story isn't over yet. You can overcome.
In the song “Zoning Done” Chuck bares all. The hook comes in and immediately makes you stop and think with the lines “ feeling less and less and less like myself, the more I drink the less I like myself, I smoke so much gas that I could light myself” The artist is giving us insight to his problems with alcohol and marijuana, yet doing so in a clever way by letting us know one, yes he is smoking good but, two, he’s at a point where he could consider just setting himself on fire. Clearly exposing signs of self loathing and low self esteem. Chuck goes on to let us in on his life growing up; the fact his father wasn’t around, his brothers dad’s being taken from them in a fatal shooting , dealing with night terrors, and low self esteem while trying to conform to his peers. Through all of this, by the end of the song Chuck is able to end the track on a positive note. Reinforcing the positivity of his brand “Create Reality,” and solidifying him as a true Lone Wolf.
