There's a new breed of EMCEE rising out of the Northeast who is bridging the opposing worlds of consciousness and commercial viability. Through his naturally magnetic energy, he captures intergenerational appeal. As he embraces life's dualities in every fact; his moniker is self-explanatory; it's Charmingly Ghetto.
Born and raised in Boston, MA, Charmingly Ghetto's name is derived from W.E.B. Dubois' "The Souls of Black Folks." Defined, in a phrase, as "two meanings in one." Charmingly reveals: "I've always been interested in literature. Richard Wright, Malcolm X, etc. You're dealing with outside forces affecting the way you think. The hate of self and the love for self. The name "Charmingly Ghetto" embodies those two parallels.
From "The Opening Act: The Birth of an MC," to his second full-length release, "OverStanding," Charmingly Ghetto released "Study A'Broad - The Intetnational Mixtape" November of 2011. The tape was presented by Donuts & Milk and features 13 tracks produced from a variety of producer from different countries; hence, the name of the tape. His other projects feature rappers from other US cities as well.
Blending classic boom-bap qualities with live instrumentation and modern story-telling, all of Charmingly Ghetto's tracks are worthy of a continuous start-to-end play. "It's really my ops to be real with you. I love painting pictures and getting people to relate and envision what I'm talking about when they hear my music," states Charmingly Ghetto.
What makes his talent even greater is the level of humbleness he has. He has concerned himself less with the fly-by-night success and is interested in crafting music forever. "I feel making timeless music is important. You've got to make music for the future because you never know who's going to pick it up and listen to it."
Above all, Charmingly Ghetto is an artist -- an individual pulling together life's experiences and lyrically airing them out on wax. He's harnessed life's dualities and crafts something extraordinary with each song. "I'm not scared of the limelight at all," he reveals. "The most important thing for me is that when the limelight arrives, it's a limelight I'm proud of."
