With his soulful sound and unapologetic lyrical honesty, Chitana adds a new flavor to the Paper Route Empire roster. Today, Chitana shares a breezy video for his chipmunk soul anthem “Love For Me,” a lyrical duet with his late mentor Young Dolph. Produced by SephGotTheWaves and OthelloBeats, the chirruping vocal samples and snaking guitar lines of “Love For Me” provide an ideal backdrop for the two rappers to get in touch with their romantic sides. While Chitana cuts through with a sharp sing-song as he wonders how deep his bonds with his woman go, Dolph’s baritone reverberates against the silky-smooth backdrop. In the video, Chitana escapes to a tropical retreat, as he flirts with models and luxuriates in memories of Dolph.
Born and raised in Chicago, Chitana brings a different perspective to the Memphis-based label, his introspective bars providing a new light on street living, while keeping the same ten toes down authenticity for which the label is known. “Love For Me” is a standout track from Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, PRE’s label compilation mixtape.
