"Quelle Chris' album "Ghost at the Finish Line" dropped via Mello Music late last month. Coming on the heels of the slept-on mixape "Niggas Is Men", the title of his latest effort appears to be the reluctant admission of something we all know but ignore ever day. This is Chris coming to terms with the fact that attempting to create lasting art in the face of his mortality, his impermanence, might be futile. Thus, much of the record is a meditation on all that’s made his life worth living, an attempt to answer one question: Has rap really been worth it?"
"This is backpack crime rap. Chris, Vessey, and Black Milk all manage pack the menace of dark Detroit alleys at midnight into three minutes. No amount of watching The Wire can help you to rap like those who’ve seen the seedy side of the D first hand."
"Production throughout Ghost at the Finish Line is heads above so many rap albums this year. It contains samples and loops from a trained digger..."
“Ghost at the Finish Line” is Chris’ anti-dance song. It’s “Teach Me How to Dougie” filtered through a space-funk prism and delivered with a wink."
