When an artist consistently creates at the forward edge, there are no guardrails. Quelle Chris has been comfortable at the boundaries, leading Hip-Hop since he started. A student of Detroitâ€™s music scene, he cut his teeth with the group Crown Nation and came up with Danny Brown, producing many of his mostbeloved tracks including the freneticâ€œMonopoly.â€
Quelle has been on an artistic dream-run with the critically and fan-lauded albumsâ€œBeing You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often,â€ and â€œEverythingâ€™s Fineâ€with Jean Grae. He then went on to makeâ€œGuns,â€before then landing the uppercut withâ€œInnocent Country 2,â€produced by Chris Keys. Quelle Chris continues collaborating with the industryâ€™s most creative artists. From billy woods to EarlSweatshirt, Roc Marciano to Mach-Hommy, from The Alchemist to Mndsgn, to comedians like JamesAcaster, Nick Offerman & Hannibal Buress, Quelleâ€™s vision extends beyond genre or format. He continued broadening his creative, Questlove-style ambitions, beyond his own rap albums when he and Chris Keys composed the score for the Oscar-winning film â€œJudas and The Black Messiahâ€with director Shaka King.
Known as one of the most dynamic live performers, Quelle Chris gives heartfelt, soul-filled, passionate stage shows. He spent the time we donâ€™t speak of crafting a new, reflective album that hits close to homefor many artists and creatives. The new album,â€œDEATHFAME,â€is a sonic treatment produced by Quelle himself, along with Chris Keys and Knxwledge. The record carries on like an incredible lost tape found atsome Baltimore flea market. It explores, unflinchingly, every moment of the trials the early 2020s hasbrought to all of us. Guests Navy Blue and Pink Siifu lend brilliance to the dynamic and unexpected new album coming May 13th on Mello Music Group.
