Chris Rivers has rap royalty coursing through his veins. Being the son of the legendary Big Pun may help you get your foot in the door, but it doesn’t promise you 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.
That legacy creates a very large shadow and it’s easy to get lost in it, but it hasn’t stopped Chris from showing and proving every step along the way of his young career that 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.
Today, Chris Rivers announces his 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 through and releases the project’s first single, “Sincerely Me”, which was exclusively premiered by VIBE.
The new album arrives August 16th on Mello Music Group.
