Video: Chris Miles – “Conversations”
15 Year-Old Rapper Chris Miles Finds Love In “Conversations,” Premiere via Yahoo
Critical Praise for Chris Miles:
“He shows a lot of promise on ‘Time,’ and proves he’s really got some lyrical skills.” – Complex
“Keep your eye on this kid.” – XXL
“[Perfect] is fast-paced and ebullient, showcasing Miles’ precocious ability to craft verses that are interesting and inventive” – HotNewHipHop

Many people say “you never forget your first love,” but in reality, you never forget the music that soundtracked that time in your life. In his new video for “Conversations,” premiered by Yahoo, Chris Miles shows how interconnected love and music truly are. Set in New York City, Chris and his crush roam the streets connecting over their passion for Mobb Deep, Kendrick Lamar, Pac, Biggie, Eminem and J.Cole. “Conversations” is a nostalgic window into the innocence of first love and the power that music has in permeating life’s pivotal moments.
Directed by Jay Brown, the central theme of “Conversations” is duality and how it can shape our thoughts and feelings of others. The video juxtaposes the cruel New York winter, with the warmth that Chris has for the girl who challenges him musically. They both love hip-hop, but champion different artists and albums. As Chris raps, “You thought Yeezus was trash but we debated that,” him and his date spend the day together bonding over their musical tastes and her support of his music career. Whether it’s in the record store or the park, the respect and admiration Chris has for his companion is heartfelt.
With “Conversations,” what separates Chris from his peers is not only the fact that he is almost half their age but that he’s not afraid to show his inherent sincerity. While Chris can spit hardened bars over Statik Selektah beats or dazzle with his knack for lyrical acrobatics, in his new video he doesn’t need to. “Conversations” is about emotions and the complexity of music, love, and challenging people you care for. “Conversations” is from his recently released free EP, Birth of Cool.

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 and releasing the first of many free EP’s – Birth of Cool.
