VIDEO: 8 Billion Lives With Young Chris

“You chop the head, the body fall. Basically, that’s what happened with Roc-A-Fella.”


With the way Rocafella records imploded and all the Beef that has continued till this day (Beanie Sigel vs Jay-z), It’s easy to forget some of the talent that was waiting in the wings to blow up from the R-O-C.
Young Chris in my opinion was one of the most promising artists on the ROC and when I stumbled upon this clip on TSS I had to post it.

Destined for success after hooking up with Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records at 15 as a member of the duo, Young Gunz, Christopher “Young Chris” Ries saw his chance almost disappear with the dissolution of the label. Unwilling to pass on his own potential and return to the hard Philly streets, Chris is now working on his own to assume his rightful place alongside the rap greats he came into the game with.
