Charli Baltimore is back, but don’t call it a “comeback.” She hates that phrase.
The former Murder Inc. rapstress has a lot on her plate these days. From recording new music to starring in a new movie, and even finding time to manage her daughters blossoming modeling career, Charli is determined to showcase all of her talents this time around.
First on her agenda is the recent release of her mixtape, Natural Born Khronicles. The mixtape finds her teaming up with Dutch of Major Figgaz fame, and follows the blueprint from the 1994 movie, Natural Born Killers.
“We modeled it after Natural Born Killers, so even our photography and everything is us posing like Mickey and Mallory. I just felt like it was something different that had never been done before,” said Charli Baltimore during her interview at the AllHipHop offices.
Charli also spoke about the supergroup, “The Commission”, which she was a part of alongside Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, and Busta Rhymes. The group was later extended to include Sean “Diddy” Combs, Kaleb “Un” Rivera, and Lil’ Cease. And, although numerous songs were made, such as “Brooklyn’s Finest”, “I Love the Dough”, “Victory”, “What’s Beef” and “Young G’s”, the group disbanded after Biggie’s March 1997 death.
“Big was setting [The Commission] up. He had a whole vision in mind of what he wanted it to be…it was definitely going down. His next project would have been [The Commission]. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to work together because of his untimely death,” said Charli Baltimore.
When asked if she would be excited to see a Notorious B.I.G. hologram created, Charli, who says she still hasn’t seen the Tupac hologram, said it would be “a little strange.”
“I always try to look at stuff when I think about Big, about how he would feel about that. I’m not really sure of how I feel about it…it’s a little strange for me, a little strange,” said Charli Baltimore.
