Where to begin: “Krimson King” has had many names in the south Alabama region. Born 1984 in Mobile Alabama he traveled all over the US with a military family. The abuse at his father’s hand and rough upbringing taught him early on to depend on himself and protect those he cares for.
After his parents divorced, Chris settled in a small town of Fairhope, Alabama. He was a part of the local boys and girls club at the age of 12, where he was known as “White Chocolate”, always the entertainer on the basketball court.
After graduation and joining the infantry division in the U.S. Army, He was stationed in Germany and then sent to a 16 month tour in Iraq. While serving overseas and fighting in Iraq, His gateway to serenity was his writing and having “rap battles” with fellow soldiers, trying to cope with the daily threats of survival. After leaving the Army he inherited the name “Krimson King” by the hip hop / Rap industry and in his local community.
His Lyrics and style are based on struggles and achievements of what he has been through. His character shows in a lot of his works. He has worked on his craft since he was a teenager and his growth in the industry shows. He is now ready to share years of sweat and tears with the release of “White Boy Wasted”.
