Newcomer Chi City dropped his new one ‘thug life’ off in my inbox a little while ago. I’m not sure why I like this to be honest — just feels right. The haunting ‘it’s 1999 my n—-‘ laid over the T.D.-produced track got up under my skin.
Here, Chi showcases a sort of off-kilter flow while making references to Pac, Big, Suge and quite a few other music fixtures circa the mid-to-late ’90s. It’s not about glorifying that lifestyle necessarily but he taps into it well. Peep.
