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?”

Quelle Chris – “Obamacare” (Video)

Okay, I will hip you to what no one told me before I pressed play on this one. LISTEN first (like, press play and close your eyes) then WATCH the video. Two very distinct experiences. The visuals are engaging on a nightmarish WTF is going on level. They are WILD! The audio though, that’s the release. Check out why everyone can get it like “Obamacare” from Quelle Chris when he spits!

Quelle Chris – “Straight Shot” feat. Cav x Bilal Salaam x Eldar Djangirov x James Acaster

Before you say, ‘Okay Quelle Chris got impatient and just loaded the box so he could get the sack (read: bag) with this “Straight Shot” Hail Mary play’… Read how it all came together in his mind… and how he then set out to make it a reality. Then listen to the stream. Artistry!

“Straight Shot” is one of those ideas that reached out to me, we got along and I simply showed it around town. The chorus, poem at the end and basic piano progression literally came to me in two separate dreams. My first thoughts were “I gotta introduce you to Bilal Salaam and James Acaster. Though I’m not sure just how to yet.” Then as we hung out I knew I needed to first introduce the idea to Chris Keys. Now initially I thought it was an interlude but quickly realized while hanging with Chris it was a song. After writing the first verse I knew I needed to invite Cavalier over to meet our new friend and felt it was time to also introduce it to Bilaal and James. And, just as I’d imagined, everyone got along with the song swimmingly. Finally, Chris called on his friend, Eldar Djangirov, who tied everything together with a piano solo that seemed to effortlessly say as much as, if not more, than I can put into words about the entire song and our time together. The rest, as they say, is today.

Jean Grae x Quelle Chris – “Gold Purple Orange” (Video)

Somehow perfect that folks like Eric Andre and Hannibal Buress are in this to add to the extinction level craziness of this visual event. “Gold Purple Orange” by Jean Grae & Quelle Chris… because why the f**k not?!

It’s a fun video. Our friends are in it.
We played dress up. I love editing and shooting and directing videos. In that way, it was also a f**king blast.
