He's 17, He's from Brooklyn, He's Hip-Hop, and spits with a purpose. ...Yet still in High School, C-Rys (stands for Christ Risen) knows his purpose for living is beyond MTV, Playstation, Pimped Cars, and girls. Born to parents Ruben Rivera Sr., and Sandra Paz from Brooklyn, NY, C-Rys always had a burning passion to speak life to his peers. He tells the story of how he talked one of his classmates out of getting an abortion. Christianity is not something he hides because there is not one person in his High school that does not know he is one. They say they can't wait to get their hands on his CD when it drops. If you were to close your eyes and listen to C-Rys spit, you would never guess this guy was only 17. He is mature beyond his years in his voice, his lyrics, and his personality. Although very serious and passionate about his lyrics and rapping, C-Rys still finds time to play Basketball, Football, and Handball. He loves making people laugh and is very devoted to his church and God. His life's goals are to 'honor God daily', 'get married and be great at it and be a major success.
