Quelle Chris “Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often”

Hip-Hop

Detroit MC and producer, Quelle Chris, presents a liquid silver beat design and on mic persona that encompasses self-depreciating humour and disregard for fly by night rap trends on “BS Vibes”.

From his forthcoming release “Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often”, “BS Vibes” is a procedural in low key delivery and comedic crafted bars that delivers the punchline with a side of head-scratch humanity. No super-hero rap stars here.

All amidst the backdrop of a electric piano jazz sample that at times indicates a deeper psychedelic fabric to the single, while House Shoes cuts the bejesus out of a Jeru Tha Damaja sample. So when you hear Chris proclaim in the chorus “Some might cower “, he’s too versatile. His mind ain’t right as it might ‘sposed to be. Believe it.
