Chairman Mao invites “the Sammy Davis Jr. of hip-hop” to ponder existential questions, discuss verbal weaponry and sing(!) in-studio.
Quelle Chris raps, produces, animates, directs, performs, composes, conceptualizes and philosophizes. All of which has lead colleagues to reverentially laud him as the “Sammy Davis Jr. of hip-hop.” Across 135th Street host Chairman Jefferson Mao is a longtime fan of this multifaceted entertainer. And on the latest episode of the show, Mao invites Quelle to kick off his footwear and chat about a plethora of topics, including the ego and id, surviving a life saddled by excessive adjectives, and how we’re destined to be remembered in death. Also: a special in-studio performance by Quelle as his performance alter ego, Awesome in Outer Space.
