Crist'ian E Is Playing Peter Piper
Crist'ian E, born Asha Buchanan, was raised on the Eastside of Atlanta, Georgia. At just the age of 10 years old, Crist'ian E fell in love with the power of spoken word and underground Hip-Hop. She is a “lyrical assassin” with a diverse and eclectic sound who has studied and admired the dialogue that rap legends such as Common, Queen Latifah, Mos Def, Tupac, spoke in their music and got the inspiration to form into her own as an artist.
Recently Crist'ian E has been nominated for the 2017 New Hip Hop Artist of the Year award at the MBE Music Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. She is also an advocate of Special Needs Rocks and They Can’t Talk But We Can organisations.
Her latest single “Peter Piper” features rapper Ty Factz and is due to be released on 3rd November 2017 and is taken from her upcoming album 'The Cage' which is released under the record label On The Move Records, Inc.
The single proves her as a force to be reckoned with in Hip Hop and showcases her finesse for laying down some serious verses. The beat of “Peter Piper” has some elements that aren’t too dissimilar to the beats of Desiigner and 21 Savage, but the silky piano embellishments definitely add to Crist’ian E’s brisk vocal style and suit her verses.
I look forward to hearing the rest of the tracks from 'The Cage', expected in the new year, and seeing the rapper cultivate her own sound and identity in the US rap scene.
