about

Artist/ writer/ producer Quelle Chris presents his third full length album, Ghost at the Finish Line. A 13 track, uniquely real look at art and life, and the realities and illusions that blur the two. This time the Hip Hop renegade brings collaborations with Alchemist, Guilty Simpson, House Shoes, Black Milk and more. With production by Denmark Vessey, Knxwledge, Oh No, Chris Keys and Quelle Chris himself. This is what Hip Hop was made for.

PRESS:
"Quelle Chris' album "Ghost at the Finish Line" dropped via Mello Music late last month. Coming on the heels of the slept-on mixape "Niggas Is Men", the title of his latest effort appears to be the reluctant admission of something we all know but ignore ever day. This is Chris coming to terms with the fact that attempting to create lasting art in the face of his mortality, his impermanence, might be futile. Thus, much of the record is a meditation on all that’s made his life worth living, an attempt to answer one question: Has rap really been worth it?"

"This is backpack crime rap. Chris, Vessey, and Black Milk all manage pack the menace of dark Detroit alleys at midnight into three minutes. No amount of watching The Wire can help you to rap like those who’ve seen the seedy side of the D first hand."

"Production throughout Ghost at the Finish Line is heads above so many rap albums this year. It contains samples and loops from a trained digger..."

- Max Bell

LYRICS:

tellin' you, this is the year...

Wakin' up in the same place every fuckin' day,
Yeah, motherfuckin' right, no fuckin' way,
Stressed out, tryin' to figure out the best route,
And the chest out, so no one knows that I'm stressed out,
'Cause everybody wanna see you at your best now,
You vice is the outfit, who's your set now?
Say I'm your favorite rapper out, but the sales ain't legit, so
The labels soundin' like schizos
Feelin' like I work from the bottom to the bottom here
And I done see the bottom of too many bottles here
No fast whips, no mansions, and no models here,
Just my next breath, little checks, and mo problems here,

Eye the whole pie, take no slice deals,
Got empty arms, can't no beats and no mics fill
I done chill where the thiefs and the night chill
And dwell where the rich and the right dwell
I done see niggas rise like the hot air
And all I got to show for it is standing right here
Same jeans, free tees, and some nike airs
The OGs treat a G like the young heir
I understand why some left and never came back
I can't promise you it'll always be the same Black
I just want my 40 acres and a playback
So I can stuff Garcia Vegas and just lay back
