Chicago rapper Chi City has been one of the hottest names on the underground rap scene for the last few years and he’s been steadily rising up as he brings forth another anthem fusing afrobeat production with witty illustrative lyricism and melodic trap cadences as he paints a very clear picture about the streets showing no love and If you're lucky enough to make it out, stay out!
“Sorry, wanna leave the streets but they keep callin/ stand up nigga but I keep falling/ for the same ol shit do it too often/ gotta change my ways know ima target/ gotta check both ways niggas double-crossing/ can’t say much these hoes pillow talkin/ can’t carry legally but know I keep it on me,”
The new song is filled to the brim with street wisdom and it speaks to Chi City’s confidence, especially when he raps that he turned all of his pain into blessings. Caroline releases on Aug 13th via EMPIRE.
From Kanye West to Lil Durk, Chicago has birthed some of today's most influential music artists, and south side native Chi City is not too far behind on that list.
The 2017 release of his song “Thug Life” which mimics a style originated from the group Bone Thugs n Harmony, had fans in awe over the compelling record that caught the attention of 300 Ent’s Lyor Cohen.
Chi City soon found himself in the center of the attention with the controversial release of “Sorry Kanye” in which Chi City somehow got ahold of Kanye West’s unreleased “Fade” beat while working on music in LA, quickly caught headlines which lead to a tug a war with Universal and G.O.O.D Music over track from the highly anticipated “TLOP” album.
After relocating to Los Angeles in early 2018 Chi City found himself in sessions writing for some of today's most relevant artists working with the likes of City Girls, G-Easy, Machine Gun Kelly, to name a few.
