"Trilingual Hip-hop"

On Wednesday, September 19, 2007, at 9:00 PM the Wiestling Center was heated up with a vivacious live performance from D.C.'s very own trilingual Hip-hop artist, Cristopolis: This emcee is fluent in English, Spanish, and French. He makes himself unique by rapping in all three languages, while bringing across a positive and knowledgeable message through his lyrics.

Cristopolis is an intellectual artist who graduated from George Mason University with a bachelor of arts degree in Philosophy. He has been emceeing since the tender age of six. The performance overall showed great character, energy, and a lot of involvement with the crowd. Cristopolis, DJ E-Boogie, the Dancer and Guitarist all played a big part in the performance to make it such a success. They all filled the Wiestling Center with energy and a lively sound. It was a pleasure to have Cristopolis invade our campus. - Penn State University
