He is an American rapper whose real name is Christopher Dooley, Jr. he is best known for his first hit “A Bay Bay”.
He was born on February 27, 1989 in Shreveport, Louisiana. He dropped out of Huntington High School in 2007 because he wanted to pursue his career in music, precisely his rap career.
His mother wasn’t happy about him dropping college, but she once had a dream of becoming a rapper too and she knew that her son would finally be happy if he had a chance to pursue his career in the music industry.
In 2007 he released his first debut single named A Bay Bay. A man behind this song was Phunk Dawg, a famous rap producer, who produced this song and ultimately all of his album.
This song is one of his most popular songs, if not the most popular one. Chris was terrified of the fact that he was maybe going to be a “one hit wonder”, but he ended up succesfuly making a few more albums.
His debut mixtape called Louisi Animal came out in 2007 and it featured a lot of other artists: The Game, Jadakiss, Lil Boosie and many more. This helped him to become more known because his fanbase combined with other artist’s fanbases.
In the next few months, Hurricane Chris released a few new singles. First he released “ A Bay Bay” remix, and after that came his first album called “51/50 Ratchet”.
He used his popularity and toured all over the south to make the best of his new album, which became a huge hit, it was no.7 at the Billboard Charts.
In 2009 he released his new mixtape called “Halle Berry (She’s Fine)” but it didn’t get attention as much as his earlier work did.
In the period of a few years he released several mixtapes and in 2012 he announced the release of his new album named “Return of the Hurricane”. He hasn’t released it that year, but two years later he released a new single called “Ratchet”, the first from hid new album “Return of the Hurricane”.
That single hasn’t really been noticed widely, and it hasn’t brought him fame,so Hurricane Chris had to do something else to get the media’s attention.
In 2015, he made an interesting move, and finally found himself in the spotlight: he got into an Internet fude between Drake and Meek Mill. He was finally getting some media attention.
Although Chris said that this wasn’t the best way to get attention, he claims that his popularity grew rapidly since the moment he got involved into the drama.
The same year he released a single called “Sections” and a hew mixtape called “Hurricane Season”.
He himself got into a feud with another rapper ovet the Internet, although he was against it a few years ago, Kodak Black. This has brought him more internet attention and his singles became more googled.
He released “Don’t Play With Me” through a platform WorldStarHipHop, and it was plain to see that it was a track made towards Kodak Black, and that track brought him millions of views.
He was in a short relationship with Shay Johnson in 2008, the star of Shay Buckey Flavor Flav on Comedy Central Roast and Love & Hip Hop:Atlanta. Their relationship didn’t last long since he was traveling a lot.
