Crude, quirky, quick-witted – all aptly describe “spits like a demon” Quelle Chris, the infamous artist whose grown notorious for imbuing his politically-forward style of hip-hop with cerebral instrumentals and unconventional lyricism and humor. After releasing his critically-acclaimed collaborative album alongside longtime partner Jean Grae last year, Chris has returned with his equally breathtaking sixth studio album, Guns.
Marked by a bold range of outlandishly-forward styles, Chris aptly states that the title of the album is a metaphor for ideologies, things, and forces “that are weaponized for the good or for evil. Love, religion, race…Fear is more powerful than a gun.” The latest LP from the veteran artist spikes from loud-mouthed sociopolitical numbers like “Mind Ya Bidness,” “It’s The Law,” and “Obamacare,” – to more nuanced cuts like “Sunday Mass” which enlists Bilal Salaam, and “You, Me & Nobody Else” which features Jonathan Hoard and Jean Grae. Whatever the case is, Chris doesn’t seem to be slowing down – both in terms of his sonic style to his unorthodox, quick-witted lyricism.
