Video: Chris Miles – “Something”
Premiered By GoodMusicAllDay, In the Latest Visual From His Birth Of Cool EP, the Youthful MC Shares His Journey As a Determined Independent Artist Chasing His Dreams
Nothing is going to stop Chris Miles. In an inspiring visual for his single “Something,” the Long Island rapper declares that he has a thing or two to prove despite being at the tender age of 15. From hustling mixtapes on the streets as an independent artist and getting recognized by industry names like Mac Miller, 50 Cent, and Chris Brown, to taking meetings with major labels, the eager MC is making his way forward. The video premiered via GoodMusicAllDay, who stated, “what is most impressive about Miles is the maturity in his voice and his ability to craft clever metaphors at such a young age… Miles is certainly on the right route to becoming a star in the music biz. It’s dope to see an artist this early in his career with so much promise.”
The Jake One-produced track is the latest single from Chris Miles’ Birth Of Cool EP, which released in December. Miles, who was recently selected as the host of Warner Music Group‘s channel on Snapchat‘s Discover feature, sets his own priorities as a young artist, choosing to write raps instead of doing his geometry homework in the video for “Something.” “Tryna show the youth that you create your own momentum,” Chris Miles raps in the first verse, adding in the second verse that “I been grinding all night, Jesus Christ, how much time do I gotta spend with a pen to take flight/ Don’t wanna be a sensation that barely lasts a damn night, so I gotta figure out a plan to make this shit right (write).”
With this momentum, Chris Miles is just getting started. At the young age of 10 years old, Miles began to write and record raps in his bedroom that were inspired by his struggles with being bullied in school. Since then, he’s built up his fan base by releasing viral music videos along with two full length, all original mixtapes. The MC, one of the youngest artists to sign a major publishing deal with Warner/Chappell, is known for displaying a level of lyricism beyond his years as he’s been praised by the likes of Chris Brown, 50 Cent, Hit Boy, Tony Yayo, and more. With his talent moving into the spotlight, Chris Miles will also be performing on select dates of Iamsu!‘s Eyes On Me tour along with Rome Fortune.

Chris Miles Background:
Chris Miles is a 15 year-old rap artist and songwriter from Long Island, New York. At the young age of 10 years old, Miles began to write and record raps in his bedroom that were inspired by his struggles with being bullied in school. After a few years of honing his skills and using rap as a coping method, he decided to start posting videos of himself rapping on YouTube, which is where he was discovered by T3 Music Group. After a few short weeks of working with T3, one of Miles’ videos managed to get posted by World Star Hip Hop where it garnered over 1.3 million views in just three days. This instantly caught the eye of many figures in the industry and Miles was immediately looked at as one of the next big things in music. Over the past two years, T3 and Miles have worked to build a fan base by releasing countless viral and original music videos along with two full length, all original mixtapes. Today, Miles is currently performing shows throughout the tri-state area after the release of his first EP, Birth of Cool.
