About No Wives Club
It’s a classic team up as underground Canadian legends Chadio and The Dirty Sample join forces for their first full-length collaboration. The two rapper-producers have known each other through live shows since the early 2000s, but aside from a few remixes they hadn’t really worked together despite their desire to do so. Cut to 2020: Chadio and The Dirty Sample are both going through breakups, so No Wives Club is born. The Dirty Sample provides a classic era Vancouver sound over which Chadio is able to express how they are both feeling. It’s no surprise heartbreak, betrayal and relief are major themes of the album, but Chadio also explores the feelings of rapping as an old man in a young man’s game.

About Chadio & The Dirty Sample
Chadio cut his teeth freestyle battling on Vancouver radio show The Morning Drive By with Maximus Clean, and stood as the freestyle champ from 1998-2000. Since then he has released eight solo albums and additional projects as a member of Imaginations Treetrunk (with Azrael and Aalo Guha), Quoted Motives (with Azrael), Dance Dance Revolution Will Not Be Televised (with Azrael, Shay Faded and Cons), and 50 Fingers (with Azrael, Kaboom Atomic and the Gumshoe Strut). He has established a unique vocal style that is organic and flips easily between flows and rhyme schemes while his lyrics tend toward the personal. Chadio also started making beats in 2016, and recently he has been releasing bootleg projects and beat tapes as Pasquale. 

Calgary’s The Dirty Sample started rapping at an early age, evolving through a series of aliases from Planit through Crash Silverback and Apeface to current MC alter ego Ol’ Gorilla Bones, but he found his true calling when he wasn’t getting the beats he wanted and picked up a sampler. Now with 30+ albums under his belt, The Dirty Sample has a catalogue that includes instrumental works, remix projects and numerous collaborations. His biggest hit, Raw Produce (Phonographique, 2015), received positive features from XXL, Mass Appeal, Complex, and 2DopeBoyz thanks to key single “Three Sixty Five” with Roc Marciano.
