Young Chris (US rapper Chris Ries)
Legal name: Chris Ries
Young Chris (born Christopher Francis Ries, March 9, 1983) is a Grammy Award nominated American rapper and songwriter. A member of Philadelphia rap duo Young Gunz, formerly signed to Roc-A-Fella Records through Beanie Sigel’s State Property collective, early success included the hit single "Can't Stop, Won't Stop". Signed in December 2010 as a solo artist to Universal Motown through producer/songwriter Rico Love’s label imprint Division1, Young Chris is currently working on his album release.
