Still working on that hot first release.



CHRIS is an emcee who believes that his music is his way to connect with the world outside of Boston. The Cambridge, MA-based rapper has been at it for a decade and won’t stop until fans around the world know his voice. With a second solo mixtape in the works off his just-launched label, New Age Empire, it won’t be long.

His first solo mixtape, “Until I Return,” and the music he’s made this far in his career, have gained him a devoted local following. He’s performed at Boston-area venues like, the House of Blues, Fenway Park, The Middle East, and Paradise Rock Club; his music is played on local radio stations WJMN 94.5 and WERS 88.9; and he’s been written about in area media the Boston Herald and the BostonPhoenix. He’s also performed with big names Joe Budden, MOP, Sammy Adams.

CHRIS got his start after seeing a friend perform at a middle-school talent show. He fell in love with the audience’s energy, and that continues to be a motivation for him. Since that day, he’s been writing, practicing, listening, studying, and developing his innate talent.

His influences are 2Pac, Jay-Z, Notorious BIG, 50 Cent, and Nas, and his sound can be compared to Wiz Khalifa, Drake, and Flo-Rida. But what sets CHRIS apart is his sincerity—“My music is very honest,” he says, “it comes from such a real place.”

Dedicated and versatile, there’s no rest after his upcoming album entitled The Price 2.0.
