Video: Chino Cappin – “Money On My Mind”
The Alamo Records Signee Shares a Fun-Loving Clip For a Soul-Sampling Highlight From His Recent Ladders Project
“It seems Chino Cappin’ has found his own lane, and he performs best when he puts his impressive voice to use.” – HotNewHipHop
“He explores his relationships with his loved ones on the deeply personal track” – UPROXX
“Dirty South influences and driving top lines set Chino Cappin apart” – Dummy Mag
Blurring the lines between hard-nosed trap and romantic R&B, there’s nothing that Chino Cappin can’t do. Jetting down to Miami for an action-packed excursion, Chino Cappin shares “Money On My Mind,” his latest music video. Built on a sample of Willie Hutch’s classic “Brother’s Gonna Work It Out,” used in Ro James’ “Permission” among other hits, “Money On My Mind” is a showcase for Chino’s buttery-smooth delivery, his triplets bouncing off the edges of the soulful guitar in lockstep with the swinging snares. In the video, Chino travels down to Miami, where he spends time on a boat with two beautiful women, and riding on three-wheel roadsters with some homies. “Money On My Mind” is the latest video from Ladders, Chino’s brand new project, following the playful clip for opening track “Still Loading.“
The 20-year-old artist’s project drips with the bravado of a man confident in his abilities, like on the recent single, “Hot Sh*t” ft. Metro Marrs, but also demonstrates the maturity necessary to describe complex relationship scenarios with relatable lyrics. Ladders is home to highlights like the aspirational “Shine,“ and the sultry break-up anthem “Fake Love.” Chino explores new dimensions of his character on introspective songs like “Feelings” and romantic tracks like “Sunshine.” Imbued with Chino’s deep love of music and his gratitude for escaping out the mud on the back of his talent, Ladders finds the Alamo Records-signed artist as he’s ready to explode out of his hometown in rural Georgia and draw new connections between rap and R&B on a national scale. Featuring an additional appearance from 1017’s Enchanting, Ladders is available to stream everywhere via Alamo Records.
Born and raised in Fort Valley, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, Chino focused on music as a teenager as a way to escape his rough circumstances. The rapper built a cult following in the Southeast with mixtapes like Cold Hearted and Too Many Losses, which combined strong melodic instincts with braggadocious bars and clear-eyed observations about life on the streets. The then-teenaged artist built buzz with a successful college tour, turning up the heat with singles like “Lap Dance,” “NaNaNa,” “Fake Love,” and “Different,” a collaboration with YSL-affiliated rapper Yak Gotti. He’s earned praise from UPROXX and Dummy Mag, and told his story in an interview with Dirty-Glove Bastard. Earlier this year, Chino shared F*CC It BaCC To The BasiCs, a new mixtape that finds Chino rhyming over instrumentals from all eras, including samples of songs by Moneybagg Yo, Usher, and more.
With Ladders, Chino is ready to ascend from local star to national recognition.

Chino Cappin is a lyricist and singer of many hats. First and foremost, he’s the voice of the streets, with a background in the slums that has given him the creative drive to progress in the packed hip-hop industry. But in addition to his rough and gruff image, he’s a fun-loving goofball, intense creative, and mastermind of charisma. With co-signs from No Jumper and the UK’s Dummy Mag, it’s clear many people from around the world have begun to tune in to hear what Chino’s been saying and continues to say. To date, Chino has amassed over 1.1 million streams, 900,000+ views, and an Instagram following of 28k+. These are authentic, consistent numbers that reveal a fanbase genuinely attracted to Chino in all capacities. His impact can be attributed to his authentic approach to rap and, surprisingly, his process of making music which is a unique take on two well-tested methods. He typically looks to select beats that evoke emotion and then lay down melodies and write to them. However, he also enjoys going off the top with whatever he’s feeling in the moment as well.
