I could say a lot of things about Chris Bo, but you really don’t need to know any of those things to appreciate the fact that the dude can murder any beat you let him get on. We realized this after inviting Chris to the studio back in early December, where he kicked it with us for almost the entirety of our show and laid down a couple frees on not one, but two beats. We didn’t take it easy on him either, giving him some beats to choose from that were decidedly out of his comfort zone. Eventually he chose a laid-back Jay Dilla beat and did not disappoint, only asking “y’all got more time for me?” after his first go. We were secretly sitting on a beat that we knew would be perfect for him–a drum-heavy 808 mafia instrumental–so we just went ahead and played it, and Chris was all over it.
It’s quite clear that Chris Bo is chasing his dreams and loving every second of it, or “holding onto music like a pit with his jaws closed” as he explained mid-verse. We had a great time getting to know such a charismatic and personable dude during the show, and certainly hope to see him again here at WRGW.
Born and bred in DC, Chris is the only Southeast native in Fat Trel’s DC1135 crew, and arguably the best and most polished stand-alone talent Trel has picked up to date. He is certainly the most lyrical of the bunch, with a flow that hits both hard and fast without ever missing a beat.

Chris also has a show in Georgetown–never heard of it, must be in like, Virginia or something–coming up in March, so stay on the look for that as well, as we’ll be handing out some free tickets for it.
