Ckrisis - Muscle Up Vol. 1 (Bird City Entertainment/Jouk Sqad)
Ckrisis is a 20-year-old rapper from East Baltimore who sent me a press kit recently with a lot of music in it, a couple mixtapes and a single and a sampler from his upcoming album Seven Days In Bird City. I like the album material I've heard, especially the single "Down For Whatever" that's on his MySpace page, but this mixtape is more on the freestyle tip with industry beats. He was featured at 5 Seasons a few weeks ago and he's performing at Cameo this Saturday.
Ckrisis - "Tore Up" (mp3)
This is the only track on here that has kind of a Baltimore club vibe with the fast tempo and the Lyn Collins break, produced by the Pornstars, so it's not really representative of the rest of his tracks, but that horn sample is ill, this is really one of my favorite songs on the CD.
