Philadelphia native Charli Baltimore has become a recognizable name, face and voice in Hip Hop over the last decade, despite never releasing an album. Originally signed to Lance “Un” Rivera‘s Untertainment along with Cam’ron in the late ’90s through her romantic affiliation with Notorious B.I.G., the rapper had a star-studded, highly-promoted Cold As Ice album in 1999, which was never released.
After four years away from Hip Hop, Baltimore reappeared in 2002, this time with Murder Inc. Records. There, she worked with Irv Gotti, Ja Rule and Lloyd on several songs, but never released an album. Following this, she had a brief stint with The Game‘s Black Wall Street Records, before independently venturing into the studio with producer Scott Storch.
In a recent interview with Sub Zero DVD, the rapper was filmed working in Murder Inc. Studios. Asked if she was re-signing to the controversial imprint, Baltimore said, “We workin’, we doin’ some things. Obviously, you see that I’m here, so it’s all good. We’re definitely working. We’re gonna keep it a lil’ controversial for right now; I don’t want to give too much away.”
Charli Baltimore has spent recent years handling the career of her daughter India, who is part of Ford Modeling, and will be appearing in an upcoming Abercrombie & Fitch campaign.
With her new single “Lose It” having touched airwaves in her hometown, the rapper hopes that the Scott Storch-produced song will be considered by radio.
