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.
With new music and tours on the way, Chi City is setting the tone for what's yet to come for 2021. He keeps his sound deeply tied to his Midwest roots and his message is one that knows no boundaries.
