We can all be adults here. We can cross-promote three or four different pieces of media and you will consume them like the unslakable content-craving readers that you are, then we can all go off and huddle together and talk about what we’ve learned.

Max Bell Shynes on. Detroit-bred Quelle Chris has been making music for a long time. He has Bandcamp tracks – rap, rock, and otherwise – from nearly a decade ago. He worked with Roc Marciano and Danny Brown (see Shotgun & Sleek Rifle) before you knew they were going to be two of your favorite […]
