Everyday it seems that we come across an artist that is truly refreshing and able to offer an alternative to the crowded music scene we already have. One such artist is Chicago rapper Chris Crack, who built his name on the underground scene while playing support for the likes of Slick Rick, Mystikal, and Can Ox. Crack built his reputation as a solo artist off of a couple of infectious and irreverent mixtapes—2013’s Kitchen in the Bassment, 2015’s Public Domain 4, and a couple of collaborative projects with noted “soultrap” architect Tree—which set up the basic parameters of his style: wall-to-wall soul samples, a cutting, nasal delivery, and bars that sound as spontaneous as they are aggressive.
Feeling rejuvenated by the acclaim for his joint project with fellow Chicago ace Vic Spencer, Who The Fuck Is Chris Spencer??, Crack is taking no breaks from his own, solo mission to be the funniest, most spastic Chicago rapper of his generation. Looking like a lost Wayans brother, Crack stars as a rapping garcon in what appears to be Salvador Dali‘s drawing room in the music video for his latest release ‘Armani Silverware‘, directed by Jeff Hadick for 119 Productions and filmed at Chicago’s Chopin Theater.
