Chris Rivers has rap royalty coursing thru his veins. Being the son of the legendary Big Pun may help you get your foot in the door, but it doesn’t promise longevity. Even though Chris started rapping at a very young age, being the son of one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved artists has undeniably been a gift and a curse.
Big Pun’s legacy creates a very large shadow and its easy to get lost in it, but it hasn’t stopped Chris from showing and proving every step of the way of his young career and bloodlines or not, he is carving out his own very unique space. Chris’ ascent has been organic and steady and has proven that he has the gifts and skills to create his own legacy and identity in the industry. That ascent has lead him to the latest chapter in his career; a new album and a new deal with Mello Music Group.
Chris Rivers new album, G.I.T.U., which stands for ‘Greatest In The Universe,’ an acronym Chris often leaned on and repeated to himself when he was depressed to help push him thru will be released on 8-16-19.
While the Apollo 11 crew recently celebrated the 50-year anniversary of their flight to the moon, Chris Rivers creates a new acronym for “N.A.S.A.” with his new video featuring fellow rising artist Oswin Benjamin.
The Greatest In The Universe crash lands on Earth and takes dead-aim at the traps of modern life. While decrying the dim lies of clout and the indelible need to find the real ones to hold you down. This is Chris Rivers declaration to the insincere who want to crowd: give a man some space. Chris River’s “N.A.S.A.” is the anthem for those tired of the fake. Add to it, a flawless “Pakinamac” homage.
Chris Rivers new album, G.I.T.U., is available tonight at midnight!
