In many ways Quelle Chris is the forgotten child of Detroit hip hop. His debut album, which dropped towards the end of 2011, featured guest verses from Danny Brown. But while Dee Luciano’s second album, released just a few months before Chris’ ‘Shotgun & Sleek Rifle’ went on to win critical acclaim, there was little fanfare about Chris’ release. Thankfully, his lack of commercial success and mainstream recognition didn’t stopped the rapper/producer from weaving his magic. He followed up his debut with a banging mixtape before embarking on his first album with Mello Music Group ‘Niggas Is Men‘.
His next album, ‘Ghost At The Finish Line‘ earned him respect in rap circles, earning him comparisons to Motor City peers like Black Milk. Quelle is hard at work adding to his discography with a new Mello release. He gives us a glimpse of what’s to come with his new single ‘Nothing Moves’. It’s nothing more than Chris conversating about his present state of affairs over a laid-back Chris Keys production. But if you’re one for undiluted boom-bap, you’ll want to crank up the volume on this one.
