Fast becoming known as Hip-Hop’s “Grandchild” as he ushers in a new generation of Hip-Hop music to the masses, Lyrical Chris is an artist who is increasingly becoming hard to ignore. Hailing from Tifton, Georgia but now based in Atlanta, Lyrical Chris’s music straddles the line between mid and uptempo Hip Hop vibes that’s certified non-explicit. He collides catchy hooks, affirmations, quotes and messages – all delivered via his brand of witty and articulate bars that get listeners thinking. An optimist at heart and an artist looking to empower listeners every chance he gets, Lyrical Chris’s music is crafted with a purpose – to nourish the mind, body, spirit, and soul which he has coined as “5D Rap,” the new era.
Lyrical Chris was born and raised in Unionville, the urban area of Tifton. Growing up in an area rife with crime and violence forced Chris to sharpen his street smarts quickly.
He cites the area as having a pivotal influence on his direction and on himself as a person – stating that Unionville “influenced me to be the best version of myself.” The memories and observations of Unionville heavily play into many of the themes of his tracks, while also helping him solidify his path early.
Although a relative newcomer to the scene, Lyrical Chris certainly has a lot to say. For Chris, he makes music not just for the joy of creating – but because he feels Hip-Hop fans deserve a new chapter yet to be told. With his heart and mind focused on spearheading the next generation of Hip-Hop artists to rise to the top, Lyrical Chris is determined to secure himself a place among the greats of the Hip-Hop musical map. He dubs this movement “5D” – a Hip-Hop formula that combines inspirational, motivational, educational, and uplifting messages wrapped up in love.
While Chris is indeed well on his way to carving out a path that is uniquely his own, his music isn’t without a sliver of high-grade influence from many of the greats that came before him. These include the likes of Nas, Busta Rhymes, Mystical, Lil Wayne, and Ludacris, to name just a few. Above all, he cites his big brother Farinzio as the pivotal influence who changed everything for him.
While he’s only been on the scene for over a year, Lyrical Chris has been busy crafting a strong discography that has seen him land chart placements on Billboard and in the top 20 iTunes Hip-Hop Charts, and regular rotation across 4,000 gyms across the USA. He has three singles out on his imprint, iSoulated, plus a notable inclusion on a compilation release for Amada Records (Hip Hop Chronicles). His forthcoming EP, ‘Prewrite’ is scheduled for release under CSP Music Group soon, with further details to follow.
