via the September 2009 press release
BATTERY RECORDS SIGNS TEXAS BREAKOUT ARTIST CHALIE BOY
NEW YORK, NY - Battery Records has signed rising hip-hop artist, Chalie Boy. The hotly sought-after artist’s first single, “I Look Good”
Neil Levine, GM and Senior Vice President of Battery Records, states “Chalie is a gifted artist who has already demonstrated his potential to breakthrough. We are now ready to nurture his talent and capitalize on a promising single that we believe can be a breakout hit.”
Chalie adds, “It feels great, I'm excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. My Dirty 3rd Records family and I look forward to Battery/Jive Records helping us take this thing to another level!” Raised in Calvert, Texas, Chalie’s musical tastes were shaped by various influences. Exposed at an early age to blues artists like Bobby Bland, B.B. King, and Johnny Taylor, he also gravitated toward the sounds of Run-DMC, Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster Flash and fellow Texas legends UGK. “I’m a big fan of Bun B and his whole style and how he brought words out. He’s an incredibly smart southern rapper.” Says Chalie.
Signed to local label, Dirty 3rd Records, Chalie Boy recorded the feel good song “I Look Good” in March and the video recently wrapped shooting in Houston, TX. The single is available on iTunes and all major digital providers.
