“I’m a shark in the water and if you just so happen to be a guppy swimming in my water you will get eaten!”

Very rarely in Hip Hop do you find an artist who is able to articulate words while maintaining flawless delivery. Chi Bully, born Donte Tucker, hails from the west side of Chicago but migrated to sunny San Diego in 2010 due to former military obligations. Best known for his aggressive delivery and potent stage performance, his artist name stems from his love for the Chicago Bulls as well as his intimidating bully like demeanor on beats. Due to his time in the Marines, which totaled to over 11 years, Bully was never able to focus solely on his music career. After months of deliberating with close family and friends he decided to terminate his contract and pursue music full time.

Bully’s first digital release, “Welcome 2 Bullyville,” dropped December 27, 2014 and has collected over 8,000 streams and 500 downloads on Audiomack; hard copies total over 2,000. The album is an introspective look into the life of a man who wants nothing more than to return Hip Hop to its proper form. Overall, “Welcome 2 Bullyville” is what Hip Hop is supposed to sound like; honest, direct, and introspective. With the fusion of new school and hard-hitting production combined with potent lyrical content, Bully proves why he is one of this generation’s best lyricists.

Bully has opened up for numerous artists which include Ras Kass, Twista, Layzie Bone, Young Dro, Jeremiah, Glasses Malone, YG, and more. In May of 2015 he competed in the Team Back Pack Mission Underground Los Angeles cypher and won the event. With this recent acclaim you’ll have to check for his new LP titled “Social Bar-Winism” that is expected to drop in the winter of 2015. Be on the lookout for the EP produced by Team Back Pack which was one of the prizes for winning the cypher competition. Bully will be on his own tour this summer called The Grass Roots Tour with the goal is to build his organic fan base from the ground up.
