Young Chris is one of several second generation Roc-A-Fella artists that never saw a level of success equal to his talent. The Young Gun served as both a potential heir and inspiration to Jay-Z at his peak, while etching out a space for himself as a rising star, but save for a couple of minor hits with with his partner Neef, Chris was never able to make a big breakthrough.
Fast forward to 2013 we find the Philadelphia emcee making moves as a solo act with unwavering confidence on his latest release “Alive.” The soulful, midtempo, production provides the perfect medium for Chris to stake his claim as an experienced veteran with the same energy of the precocious teen that drew oohs and ahhs in the early 2000s.
“Alive” is available on iTunes and will be included on Chris’ upcoming six-track EP Vital Signs.
