Quelle Chris – Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often [Album Stream]

Here’s an early stream of Quelle Chris’s new project “Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often”. The album’s first song is “Buddies,” a quirky expression of self-love that finds Quelle toasting his best friend (himself) over a jazzy bass loop and intermittent horn stabs courtesy of producer Ayepee: “I f—- with myself / I might buy myself some flowers / I’m in love with myself.” The high doesn’t last long; the harps that conclude “Buddies” give way to the choral “aahs” and somber guitar of “Popeye, “a meditation on regrets: “Kickin’ the can but never eats the spinach / Seems I never reach the goal but alway meet the finish / Though / I know my heart … goes.” Quelle isn’t alone on this personal journey. Frequent collaborators like Cavalier, Jean Grae and Denmark Vessey (his partner in the collective Crown Nation) lend vocals throughout. Together, they make “In Case I Lose Myself” feel more like communion than a typical posse cut: “I am we / We are God / I am dirt / I am stars / C’est la vie / Say ase / Say Amen/ ‘ḥamdu lillāh.” The guests also help to counterbalance

Watch Run The Jewels’ “Tiny Desk” Concert [Video]

Like any good pair of twins, Run the Jewels have a freaky sort of unspoken fraternity. When El-P and Killer Mike strode in with their usual uniforms — Mike in a gold chain as thick as a garter snake, El in a fitted Yankees cap and pair of blue-mirrored sunglasses — the two didn’t have to do as much as nod to one another before upending three tracks from their latest LP, “RTJ3”, in strange and perfect symbiosis. El-P (née El-Producto, née Jaime Meline) — rapper, producer, and all-around godfather of the backpacker scene of the late-90’s — and Killer Mike — known for guest features on tracks by Atlanta’s Dungeon Family in the early-aughts, solo work in the mid-to-late ’00s, and perhaps most widely for his very public support of Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign last year — have out-mused each other in a supergroup that somehow seems to get better, louder, and more pertinent since their start in 2013. They represent an ideal evolution of underground hip-hop to mainstream success, mixing a fundamentally activist animus with IMAX-level production without losing a speck of vital force. On an unseasonably beautiful day in D.C., Run the Jewels was sweaty and
