Chanel West Coast
American rapper, entrepreneur and now
podcaster from San Francisco, California
During high school, Berner began battle rapping and in 2006 he released his first mixtape, Dirty Sneakers. Berner previously worked as a bartender and later as budtender.
Berner opened a clothing and lifestyle store in San Francisco called “Cookies”, selling items such as lunch bags, duffle bags and “smell proof” backpacks. He is associated with the “Cookie Family” of marijuana geneticists, who produce strains common in California, such as “Girl Scout Cookies” and “Sunset Sherbet”
Two years later, Berner received a call from Mistah F.A.B. on behalf of Wiz Khalifa, asking if he could get some weed for him. After this experience, they became friends and Wiz started rapping about “Cookies” on stage. Soon afterward Berner convinced Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa to appear in a music video for Yoko, another single of his.
