Born in 1989 in Skien, Norway, Joachim Thorkildsen grew up in an environment that was a bit out of the ordinary. His life has had many ups and downs, and he quickly ended up with people of bad influence. His somewhat different upbringing led him to music as an outlet, and rap as a genre seemed to fit him well. In the beginning it was more of a heavy rap he preferred. However, as he grew older, the more commercial aspect of the genre turned more appealing. 

Going under the name “Chim”, he soon found that music was what he wanted to pursue. CHIM always uses his life experience as an inspiration when writing songs. This makes for songs in a wide spectre of moods, and also different takes on the hip hop and rap genres. He has been listed on New Music Friday Norway several times, and also been in other playlists such as Ny Pop and Flammer. On Spotify, he has several million streams, and he has played concerts all over the country and on live TV.
