Chilla Frauste (born Anthony Christian) was a hip-hop\Miami bass artist from the late ’80s.
In 1987, Chilla released his debut single “Bedtime Stories” under the name “Chilla Frauste and the Ice Cold Crew.” The song sampled Nu Shooz’s song “I Can’t Wait,” but didn’t appear to make any impact on the charts.
In 1988, he released his second single “Get Up, Get Down, Get Funky, Get Loose” which received minor reception in South Florida, but didn’t make any music charts at all.
In 1989, he released his debut (and only) album “Don’t Fight the Feeling” on Vision Records.
During that same year, Chilla released his third single, a cover version of Foxy’s song “Get Off.”
Neither the album or single appeared to make any impact on the charts and after that, it seems as if Chilla Frauste has faded into obscurity. It’s unknown what he’s up to these days.
