Quelle Chris continues to be one of the most innovative rappers out today. His latest single is "The Sky is Blue Because the Sunset is Red" and it sounds like a hip hop song with a title like that. Unlike the vast majority of hip hop released in the past forty plus years, this new song keeps the beats way in the back. Instead, Quelle's vocals (along with Pink Siifu and MoRuf) are the main focus of the song. Most of the music seems to be a loop of a disjointed piano. It's quite trippy, especially for hip hop. It sounds kind of like a modern, less mainstream version of PM Dawn. It's great to see an artist pushing the boundaries of any genre, but particularly hip hop.
You can listen to "The Sky is Blue Because the Sunset is Red" below. DEATHFAME is due out May 13 on Mello Music Group, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Quelle Chris, check out the artist's Twitter and Instagram. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
