Chrisette Michele Starts Rapping On New Album

Chrisette Michele’s ‘Let Freedom Reign’ LP is scheduled to hit stores on November 30th and she’s starting to give her fans an idea of what to expect from the record. The ‘I’m A Star’ singer has revealed that she rapped a few verses on the album; adding diversity to her already unique sound. Check out what she had to say to about the project below:

The Grammy winner plans to bust a rhyme on a track with four undisclosed rappers. “I’m rapping this time, there’s a few featured rappers on there,” she tells Rap-Up.com, noting that she was a rapper long before she started singing. “There’s four of them, and there’s four verses, and we’re still choosing which ones we want to use.”

Though she’s remaining mum on which lyricists have contributed to the project, the 27-year-old reveals that her album will feature backing vocals from Jazmine Sullivan and Ne-Yo, with the bulk of production handled by longtime collaborator Chuck Harmony. “Me and him make such a great team, on our Brandy and Darkchild or Janet and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis,” she explains. “Me and Chuck get along that way.” {Source}

Chrisette rapping? This should be very interesting. It looks like she’s ready to tap into her inner Queen Latifah/Lauryn Hill.

Thoughts?
