Of all the stage names out there (and there are a lot), Charmingly Ghetto is definitely one of my favorites. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always loved the name. Oh, and he can rap, too. On his latest single, I’ve Arrived, Mr. Ghetto devours ATG’s soulful beat (complemented by the fluttery vocals of Katrina Rene), exhibiting a fiery, impassioned flow that makes each line ring out like a pistol shot. Thankfully, he leaves enough for his guests, REKS and Murph Watkins, to have their fill as well. REKS showcases a similarly demonstrative, tenacious flow, but Murph switches things up with a more laid-back, fluid delivery. If you’re feeling I’ve Arrived, be sure to check out Of the Meaning of Progress, Charmingly Ghetto’s latest album, available for free streaming and download in The DJBooth.
