New Chicago hip hop recording artist Chris K breaks onto the scene with his debut album, SUMMIT. A short but impactful 7 track record, Chris K finds melodies and pockets he can belt with a slight contemporary glaze of vocal effects. Peppering in rap verses over hard hitting but uplifting, spritely, hip hop beats. Summit is a solid introduction to Chris K who we project being in the game for a long time to come!
Starting off the record with a hit in SOUL FOOD, Chris K has a natural knack for crafting pop composition. “Sunday evening comes around I’m serving soul food,” Chris K sings in a run as he goes into the hook. He clearly has been singing for a while, and his skills already ahead of his peers. NEVER ENOUGH is a slightly darker track about being unsatisfied, and wanting more in the game of life. You can hear influences of Drake, Chris Brown, and Big Sean in this record, a solid follow up to the intro.
JIMI VIBES is a song about being unique and standing out. “’Cause I’m a modern day Hendrix, I don’t blend in, you know I don’t mess with you motha fu**as. Because you only made tension, my nights long, make ‘em never wanna end it, Jimi Vibe…” Chris K definitely separates himself with this record hitting fast sing rap flows in and out of his hook.
STUNT LIKE THIS is a hard track that will have you head bobbing to the beat, and his rap flows. Chris K really channels Ty Dolla $ign on this song with the hook. “She like me better when I stunt like that, how long it’s been like where the sunlight at? She said why you roll a blunt like that? Wonder how I make you cum so fast?” WHAT IM SAYIN. is a personal favorite of the record, without giving away anything about this song, just go bump this hit! Best melodies and flows on this particular track.
SUMMIT is the title track on the 7 piece record. Hitting high pitched flows, and keeping the melody hopeful and light, Chris K paints a bright future for his career and life. “I could climb a mountain if I wanted, now I’m the one that’s looking down from summit.” LETTERS TO HOMETOWN wraps the project up with a positive vibe about chasing your dreams, leaving your home behind to achieve greatness, but not forgetting where you came from.
