Alongside production from 2020’s own, Christian Yoon, and suspicious person, CHI recently dropped a vibrant, high-paced track named “Starry Knight”. Both a play on words and a reference to Vincent van Gogh’s world-renowned painting, this track speaks volumes towards how CHI recognizes her own talent/potential, and how she will remain as formidable as a knight in order to achieve what she has set out to accomplish. Also notable is the fact that the talented CHI can also be credited with the cover-art on this track.
Off the rip, the stellar production on this one catches the listener’s ear with ease. Both Christian Yoon and suspicious person did an amazing job with the beat on this track, so props to them for working their assess of and coming up with an amazing finished product. The combination of this instrumental and CHI’s lyricism are what truly make this song as dope as it is; I was in the midst of a two-hour drive home, and the second this song dropped, my shitty Chevy Impala instantly felt like a rocket ship.
While CHI has a faster-paced style of delivery on “Starry Knight”, she’s extremely talented at presenting raps/flows that directly hit you, and remain there. It’s evident that CHI spent a great deal of time working with this track, and this most certainly shows when listening to the final product. If this is your first time hearing of CHI, I highly suggest listening to her track with the SuperSmashBroz, Plad Fine$$e, and Lil Rich “Grab It“, and “Holy Moly” as these two songs in particular do an exceptional job at presenting what the young talent is capable of.
Quickly becoming one of the artists I’m most excited to see what they release next, CHI is making strides toward becoming a true voice of the city, so Boston: let’s show her some love. Listen to CHI’s “Starry Knight” (prod. Christian Yoon & suspicious person) below:
