DMV-based rapper and producer Chris Allen has been releasing music and performing shows all over the east coast for some time now. After a brief hiatus, he returns with his latest single “God Complex,” the lead single from his forthcoming album, “From The Southside With Love.” The 14-track project serves as a soundtrack of his experiences growing up a proud Washingtonian.
“God Complex” ushers in a new era for Chris Allen. Taking a more direct approach, Allen puts his forward-thinking lyrics front and center, explaining he is ascending and ready to rise above those who underestimated him and claim back his power. “For God Complex, I wanted to continue to celebrate black success despite systemic oppression. I wanted to celebrate the limitlessness of our power,” he shares about the single in an essay he wrote.
