Charli Baltimore has a history in rap that starts in the later half of the 1990s. Back then she associated with the rapper Biggie Smalls and put out her first pieces of work, the longplayer debut Cold As Ice that features major names like Da Brat, Lady of Rage, and Queen Pen (Thorough Sisters), and her first single Money.

After that only a handful of singles hit the surface in the early 2000s. Though they were solid in terms of cooperation, as with her local peer Eve, (Philly’s Finest), and RnB star Ashanti (Let It Rain) and though they really fit the styles and ways of that time, these outputs couldn’t bring her far.

Then, due to an unfortunate deal she made with a major label that poorly managed her music Charli Baltimore almost disappeared from the picture for the following decade.

 

Anyway, in 2012 she reached out from Pennsylvania to Michigan and built a new relationship with Detroit’s Trick Trick. Together they founded their independent label B.M.B that is supposed to carry Baltimore’s comeback. From that base they also signed and manage some up-and-coming artists like L Streetz from Chicago, who by the way grew up in Shawnna‘s camp.

So far, Charli put Hard 2 Kill on the plate, a mixtape packed with reps, introducing her new milieu, with BMB as it’s lead.
