Che Noir is emerging as one of the top multi-hyphenates (emcee and producer) in Hip-Hop. Born and raised in the city (Buffalo) that is currently creating the rawest Hip-Hop in recent memory, Che’s ascent has been completely organic; and with each successive project she releases, her patrons continue to grow exponentially.
Che Noir released her debut mixtape in 2016; which caught the attention of Benny The Butcher, who recorded “Tyson” with her in 2017. Soon thereafter, she began working with 38 Spesh, who featured her on numerous Trust Gang releases leading up to her 2020 project, As God Intended, (produced entirely by Apollo Brown), which featured collaborations with Black Thought and Skyzoo.
In January of this year, Che set the table and turned her thoughts into a Michelin chef-level full course meal with the release of her breakthrough project, Food For Thought, which further demonstrated her massive range, styles, and techniques; from nostalgic reminiscences to crime-driven narratives.
Now, the Shea Butter Queen branches out even further with her forthcoming project The Last Remnants; where she not only thanks God for the bread on her table, but for also blessing it.
The Last Remnants is also a full-circle moment for Che, as she re-connects with Benny The Butcher for the projects lead single “Wash The Dishes,” where she makes it clear that she’s not above doing the dirty work “we can all get it, it’s enough for us all to eat, if we run out of plates after I eat, I’ll wash the dishes.”
“I remember when I heard the beat, and did my verse I knew Benny would be a perfect fit for this” Che Noir recalled. “Benny pulled up to the studio I was recording at in Rochester, we broke bread and “Washed The Dishes.”
Che Noir’s forthcoming project, The Last Remnants, will be released on 10-26-22.
