The new Quelle Chris track appears on Mello Music Group’s Bushido compilation album.
On Wednesday, Quelle Chris dropped the animated video for his new track with The Alchemist, “Iron Steel Samurai.” The track will appear on the Mello Music Group Bushido compilation album, which will feature names like Apollo Brown, Oddisee, Joell Ortiz, Skyzoo, and Homeboy Sandman. Watch the new video and view the full Bushido tracklist below.
The wacky, irreverent, borderline-inappropriate self-directed video draws inspiration from ancient Japanese art.
Quelle Chris is one of the core members of the label’s roster, while newcomers like Solemn Brigham, Namir Blade and The Lasso are ready to pick up the mantle. Elder statesmen like Murs, Kool Keith, B-Real and The Alchemist appear on the compilation as well.
“This isn’t merely an anthology,” the label says in a press release. “It’s a fully-formed vision of what hip-hop can be. A meticulously assembled arsenal of past, present and future.”
