  • Brian Weidy of IX Daily Jan. 21, 2014
    "Chuckie Campbell's latest album, More Die of Heartbreak, is a well-crafted album, one which features both singles and a cohesive story throughout...Overall, this is a well-crafted album, which tastefully uses guests in order to complement the existing songs while showing a keen eye for production and aesthetics."

  • Brian Lion of UTG Review Jan. 21, 2014
    "[More Die of Heartbreak is] shrouded in an elegant veneer with an honest, and ofttimes, visceral undercoat in the form of words derived from real-life experiences and worldviews." "Campbell’s newest effort, a 12-track LP entitled More Die Of Heartbreak, is as somber as its name might suggest, but the impressive arrangements combined with Campbell’s aforementioned skillset makes for an effort that you may find yourself smiling about."

  • Caitlin Hoffman of Bigger Than Beyonce Jan. 18, 2014
    "In a genre where many artists choose self-promotion over ethical or artistic intent, Chuckie Campbell would rather speak for the human race. His rhymes are succinct, sedated, and digestible, forging a confused bridge between rap and spoken word. More Die of Heartbreak, an experimental album taking its name from a Saul Bellow novel, is a soft-hitting release with a slough of guest appearances and meaning behind the beats." (Read More)
  • Pop City Review Jan. 18, 2014
    "Any hip hop fans out there? If so, you've got to check out Chuckie Campbell. This New York native is making audiences stand up and take notice with his new album, More Die of Heartbreak. That's because he's innovative and writes songs about real life issues happening in our society. Unlike a lot of others in this genre, he not only has the fast flow and catchy beats,but smart and creative words to back it up. It's exactly what's been missing from this kind of community for decades." (Read More)
  • E Scritoria of BK United Jan. 17, 2014
    "The rap talent’s freshman album, More Die of Heartbreak, has garnered a great deal of praise across the web...With no pause, he’s able to create moments that are intellectual and personal. He conveys the integrity of hip hop’s forefathers, and the brazen talent of hip hop’s future." (Read More)
  • Kate Ferguson of Young Hollywood Jan. 10, 2014
    "We usually can only handle feel-good music without much depth in small doses lest our commute to work turn into a cry-fest. New York-based artist Chuckie Campbell has found a way to blend the two, so if you have been missing the thought-provoking aspect in the hip-hop scene, he’s your guy, and More Die of Heartbreak is your album." (Read More)
  • Kevin Clarkston of The Truth About Music Jan. 9, 2014
    "More Die of Heartbreak more often than not strikes the perfect balance of raw vulnerability and grim determination, acknowledging the demons that lurk in the world and inside oneself, while summoning the inner resolve to rise above both." (Read More)
  • Bret Uddenburg of URB Magazine Jan. 8, 2014
    "Chuckie Campbell put a lot of time and heart into this record, and with the help of a talented cast featuring everyone from Wu-Tang veteran Cappadonna to country vocalist Erin Breeding, More Die of Heartbreak is a stellar cathartic release." (Read More)
  • IMMORTAL JELLYFISH: Chuckie Campbell Jan. 7, 2014
    "When Campbell switches his lens from macro to micro, his skill as a storyteller emerges. The brilliant, piano-driven 'Seasons' fleshes out a childhood memory of watching a young man succumb to a heart condition on a basketball court in the unforgiving cold of winter." "The soulful and intricate production of Willie Breeding is a high point of the album from start to finish, complementing the varying flows of Campbell." (Read More)
  • Will Cifer of Soletron Jan. 6, 2014
    "For a genre of music whose adopted code of honor is keeping it real, the current state of hip-hop caters more to posturing than anything offering real substance, but here is album that takes me back to the days when rappers had something to say and is packed full of honesty, which is something you can’t fake. Here Chuckie Campbell puts back the pieces to a life that was broken and creates an album of hip-hop that is dark enough for me." (Read More)
  • Hiplanta Jan. 6, 2014
    "...these bleak vignettes are snaps shots of pain...I don't think I have heard a rap album that is this intimate...and this album is like a breath of fresh air for hip-hop and I hope it receives all the accolades it has earned from being so masterfully crafted and honest." (Read More)
  • Daniel Davidson-Amadi of Music News Jan. 5, 2014
    "Campbell’s album is a lyrical festival of deep thoughts and views delivered with a quasi-aggressive, machine gun flow and sincerity that exudes the pain and anguish no doubt felt from the experiences that influenced the project. His wordplay, puns and punchlines leave indelible images in your mind...This is hip-hop consciousness and storytelling at a level that aficionados of the genre." (Read More)
  • Craig Manning of Absolute Punk Dec. 30, 2013
    "Still, leaving aside the guest features and the lush musical arrangements, the lovely production (courtesy of Will Breeding) and the melodic hooks, More Die of Heartbreak is at its best when Campbell finds moments to himself in the center of the storm. And it’s those moments that make this record arguably my favorite hip-hop release of the year – even if it’s arriving too late to make my year-end list." (Read More)
  • Tom Sharkey of Highbrow Hip Hop Dec. 30, 2013
    "I’m pleasantly surprised with how good More Die Of Heartbreak sounds. It’s a challenge for any up-and-coming rapper to find quality production, engineering, mastering, etc. for a project, and all of that is completely independent of the actual material on the album. The production on More Die Of Heartbreak is on point, and Chuckie Campbell brings quality lyrics, a nice flow, and an ear for matching his raps with the instrumentals he spits on." (Read More)
  • Monifa Barker of The Hot Zone Dec. 23, 2013
    "Much like the rest of the album, listening to this track is like listening to a movie. Campbell excels at painting a vivid picture that makes his audience of listeners feel as if they are a part of the scenario without ceasing to keep them in suspense." "The Southside Kentucky bred emcee (now residing in New York) whose intricate poetic lyricism and theatrical storytelling capability is comparable to Lupe Fiasco, Dead Prez or Talib Kweli, with strong metaphors and heavy-duty word play." (Read More)
  • Christopher Russell of Indie Music News Dec. 18, 2013
    "The record is hotly anticipated by Chuckie’s growing army of followers and promises to further augment his rising reputation on the New York hip hop scene. Look out for lead single ‘Synesthesia’, a diatribe on inequality and chaos in American society. ‘It’s us against us,’ Chuckie tells us as he paces the streets of his childhood, ‘not us against them’." (Read More)
  • IAE Magazine Dec. 17, 2013
    "Chuckie is very comparable to such lyricists as Nas, Dead Prez, Black Thought of The Roots, and Common." "Opening up the project, Chuckie gives us an immediate dose of his lyrical superiority on the track, "Speak". The song is set to a laid back, rhodes driven production that reaches back to when Neo-Soul conscious rappers were at the helm of the hip-hop genre. Not to be mistaken as outdated though, because Chuckie Campbell is anything but that. It is nice to get a break fro (Read More)
  • RJ Frometa of Vents Magazine Dec. 16, 2013
    "Campbell’s effortlessly cool wordplay challenges anyone to step outside their comfort zone and observe the world from a different perspective...Featuring such in depth lyrics of points in his life, More Die of Heartbreak really proves that this guy is very worthy of the title." (Read More)
  • Kyle Jarmon of Examiner Dec. 8, 2013
    "Offering a dark depth to the hip hop scene, Chuckie Campbell's More Die of Heartbreak puts the rapper on the map. Each song exhibited is intensely reflective, offering observations intermingled with beats that are laid back and slanted to complement Campbell's voice." "More Die of Heartbreak is worth the experience not only for its lyrical depth but for each one of us who have been through something traumatic and prevailed." (Read More)
