Since it’s been nearly two years since the Young Gunz member last stepped into the Booth with a solo feature, fans may well be wondering, “Is Young Chris still on that Philly Sh*t?” If that’s the case, this newly-released remix should put your mind at ease: though Chris recently switched his label affiliation from Roc-A-Fella to Rico Love‘s newly-relaunched Division 1, his ironclad devotion to his hometown is one thing that hasn’t changed in slightest. Over Love’s sparse, synth-percussion instrumental (complete with a helium-voiced hook), Chris reps his hood to the fullest, proclaiming himself “Fresh Prince of the City.” Handling guest duties are three fellow flame-spitters from the City of Brotherly Love: veteran femcee Eve, Grand Hustle emcee Meek Mill, and even Roots Crew frontman Black Thought all join in to pay their respects to the streets that made them who they are (and do a little stunting for good measure). If you’re left wanting more, satisfaction is only a click or two away: Re-Introduction, Chris’ first release at his new label home, is out now online.
