Quelle Chris drops by with another visual off of his burner, Shotgun & Sleek Rifle (you see what I did there?). This time around, he’s “joined” by his old Wasted Youth crew for some no-budget, homemade, movie making mayhem.
Quelle Chris’ Shotgun & Sleek Rifle didn’t disappoint. The album fulfills all the basic requirements for a good rap record (writing, delivery, personality, production, cohesion in sound and style, tasteful well-chosen features, etc), then ups the ante with some creative song structures/arrangements and beats featuring slick subtle nods to Detroit’s lauded rock and soul heritage. The result stands strong alongside other similarly minded ‘one foot in the backpack one foot in the future’ albums/mixtapes from this year… think Lost In Translation, Black & Brown EP, MacheteVision. Sometimes it even surpasses them.
Bang! Quelle Chris returns with a motion picture treatment to the lead single off of Shotgun & Sleek Rifle. Some more of that traumed-up jazz over dusty drums…with wordplay and delivery to match. Chew on this until November 15th, when the album drops…or, better yet, pre-order that bitch right now via Fat Beats (yes, buying a physical copy!).
