THAT’S HIP HOP IS SET TO RELEASE CHRIS RIVERS’ DELOREAN ON JULY 14TH, 2017.
Do you believe in Dragons? How about Legends?
Have you seen a River?
Chris Rivers, a 23 year old Lyrical Dragon who breathes fire with his vocal artillery and technically efficient vernacular. He is “heavy on the mic”, like the crown that he bears; The prodigal son of rap, whose lyrical rivers flow from the sound of Hip Hop royalty. Chris has a charisma and cadence provocatively reminiscent of his father, the late great, Big Punisher. However, this Dragon of Rap is coming out from under his Father’s shadow and taking the crown to the next level. Although from very humble beginnings, Chris has toured the country with world-renowned artists like Jadakiss, headlined a European tour, and opened up for Cypress Hill, Immortal Technique, Kool G Rap, and Big Daddy Kane. Chris has rocked the stage as a featured performer at the A3C Music Festival, and hit the TuneCore Stage and BET Music Stages, in 2015 and 2016, respectively, igniting the crowd with one bar at a time; and bars he never seems to run out of leading to Chris’ earned reputation as the Cypher King as a result of his talent for ripping apart and setting cyphers ablaze.
Since beginning this journey to greatness in 2012, Chris has earned stripes as a veteran freshman in the rap game. In 2013 and 2014, Chris released the two-part Wonderland of Misery series which included collaborations with great names like Styles P, Vinnie Paz, Buckwild, Action Bronson, Cory Gunz with production by Alchemist, Statik Selektah, and StarTrack. In 2015 and 2016, he released the two-part Medicated Consumption series which included collaborations with Nitty Scott, Jarren Benton, Sheek Louch, Uncle Murda, Bodega BAMZ, and Whispers. Always consistent, and never to disappoint, Chris’ talent is soaring to new heights as he recently joined forces with GRAMMY nominated producer London on da Track to release the highly anticipated sin- gle “Chose Me”. Additional accolades and career successes include: performing in the 2015 NBA All Star Sprite Cypher, winning the Best Freestyle of 2016 by Team Backpack, and participating in the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher, which was later featured as a Jam of the Week on BET JAMS.
Chris undoubtedly continues to demonstrate lyrical prowess unseen in other competitors.
Listening to the movement that is Chris’ body of work, you find that this young talent has a heart for music and is passionate about his story telling as he writes about hardships from being homeless, to battling issues relatable with many young men today with poor self-worth, and how the music that raised him and left an impact so divine he had to pay it forward. Chris writes so that his lyrics will inspire others, to become great within themselves. “We are all Dragons with wings” says Rivers.
With 5 years in the game, 4 projects under his belt and a 2015 freestyle on Sway in Morning that has over 2.2 million Youtube views, the industry has taken notice! Chris has been featured on Revolt TV, Hot 97, XXL Magazine, Complex, Thisis50.com, Global Grind, World Star Hip Hop and it is only the beginning! This Puerto Rican Prince is giving fans something heroic to believe in once again; authentic hip hop that they will love and to which they can relate. Dragons Up!
