Around 3:45 in on the Tammy Mercure directed “Calm Before” Quelle Chris video, featuring Cavalier and Suzi Analog, we see the Detroit MC and producer holding a rather large yellow snake around his neck. Next, he is holding a lizard or baby alligator in his hands, without pause. While in back a persistent cat is chasing a mouse down a hole in the ground, and a very shy donkey pokes in and out of the camera shot. These matter of fact, bizarre images befit the Quelle Chris on-mic persona. Poignant, comedic and self-aware.
BEING YOU IS GREAT, I WISH I COULD BE YOU MORE OFTEN, the latest full release from Chris, will be available on Friday Feb 10th on Mellow Music Group Records.
It includes guest MC’s and producers Alchemist, Elzhi, Homeboy Sandman
Jean Grae, MNDSGN, Roc Marciano.
