Chi–Ali, aka Chi Griffith, is pooling his resources from his prison cell with hopes of making his younger cousins Guns & Glamour (a male and female twin rap group) the next big thing in Hip Hop.

He is starting to write letters from his prison cell for some of his Hip Hop contacts in regards to giving his cousins Guns & Glamour the exposure he has worked so hard to get them since 1998. Hip Hop and rap moguls like DJ Red Alert, Big Tigger and P. Diddy should receive letters from Chi–Ali by the end of August 2006.

Former rap artist Chi-Ali has been on America's Most Wanted twice. He is in jail on the charge of murdering his ex-girlfriend's brother, Sean Raymond.

In 1998, the brother and sister twin duo Guns & Glamour started putting their lyrics from their rap books on top of beats and started to create the unique sound. During that time, their cousin Chi-Ali started to recreate his image and was working in a studio based in Atlanta, GA. Chi-Ali passed on a CD with their songs to Terry Ross of Noontime Recordings/Capitol. After hearing the music Terry flew the duo to Atlanta, GA and started working with an unknown but well-known producer today - Jazze Pha. They recorded an array of songs and signed with Noontime, but they were shelved - unsure how to market a group whose fourteen years of age and reciting explicit lyrics.

Now, when was the last time you heard a male and female rap group who are twins and the female raps more gangster than the male? Well, that’s one of the characteristics that Guns & Glamour expresses through their music and lifestyles. Guns & Glamour is the sole mixture of complete opposites with the same story to tell---their life struggles.

About Guns & Glamour: Hollywood (born Darryl Alexander) and Beloved (born Diandra Alexander) grew up together in NYC but adopted their own lifestyles. Beloved who’s a high school dropout gained interest to the streets with total disregards of obeying her parents. Mean while, Hollywood choose to stay in school and not get caught up in the game. Beloved used to sit at the kitchen table writing gangsta raps and poems. Soon her twin adopted her creative writing trait, but Hollywood took a different approach. He focused on catchy hooks and an undeniable flow. Together they merged their talents and lifestyles to create Guns & Glamour a group that appeals to both Hip Hop and Pop audiences.
