Quelle Chris – “WYRM” (Video)

Out here writing, rapping, spitting ill poetic… and Quelle Chris still has one straightforward question: WYRM? “Will You Remember Me?” That is the question that pretty much every artist wants to be answered; even if they never explicitly express a desire to know.

“So many of my memories are collections of collages from home videos, photo books and boxes of developed pictures. The lucky few who have escaped the fate of moments lost in disposable cameras. VHS and mini cam tapes. Orphans of history without a home. This particular memory was captured on a Canon 814XL camera and shot with Kodak Super8. Through the lens of Grégoire Verbeke on a lovely afternoon in Brussels. A moment trapped in time. Ageless. Even as we fade. Will you remember?”

Do you enjoy heavy bass lines, with a knocking beat, paired up with meaningful lyrics?  If that is the case pretty sure you will enjoy this new video for “Augmentation” for Rapper Big Pooh produced by Apollo Brown.  The track is off the upcoming album “Words Paint Pictures” that will be released from Mello Music Group. Here are some lyrics from Rapper Big Pooh that describe this track well …

Beat box, this is back to the block/ Before every rapper sold rocks/ Before everybody needed rocks in their watch/ Just watch, now it’s all about board rooms and stocks/ Words paint pictures, I’m an artist non-stop/ Raw beats, raps, this is called hip-hop…

Has-Lo – ‘Perfume Trail’

Track from Philly native & Mello Music Group artist Has-Lo. I’m definitely diggin this joint.
Perfume Trail – That’s produced by Danny Diggs. He was in a relationship and he wanted to make a song for his girl. He wanted it to be special but he doesn’t rhyme so he asked me to take some elements of their relationship story and author them. There are things that they’d hear and recognize, but I also wanted to make it general enough that anyone could enjoy the song. This one’s only a few months old.
