About Chris Crown

Born in Brooklyn, Chris Crown’s background is a fusion of diverse cultures. His father hails from Venezuela, while his mother was born in Haiti. Their paths converged, leading to Crown’s birth and upbringing in Brooklyn and Staten Island.

Crown elaborated on his New York upbringing, explaining, “I’ve lived in Brooklyn, Staten Island, Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens.” His family moved to Staten Island initially in pursuit of a better life. However, after facing challenges, they returned to Brooklyn before ultimately resettling in Staten Island. Crown praised his single mother for her hard work and dedication, as she juggled multiple jobs while he explored the streets of various neighborhoods.

During the interview, Crown talked more about his ties to Crown Heights, a neighborhood celebrated for its diverse culture. He explained that his name, “Chris Crown,” was inspired by his street address, 836 Crown Street, close to Lincoln Terrace Park. This spot held a special place in the hearts of the locals and had a big impact on his upbringing.

As the conversation progressed, the emcee discussed his involvement in different parts of Brooklyn, including the Utica side and Franklin side. He acknowledged the vibrant club scene in Brooklyn and reminisced about the good times he had there.

The interview shifted focus to his early musical influences, with Crown revealing his introduction to music through the church. At the tender age of five, he played the drums for the church choir, highlighting the role of music in his life from a young age.

The host inquired whether he had considered a path within the church, perhaps becoming a choir boy or even a pastor, given his early involvement. However, Crown explained that his life took a different turn due to the allure of the streets. He candidly shared that he had faced legal troubles, including an assault and robbery charge, when he was just 14 years old. His involvement in street activities and his surroundings ultimately shaped his music and lyrical expression.

Reflecting on his journey, Crown noted that his mother’s singing in the church had left a lasting impression on him. He acknowledged his early church involvement and the subsequent divergence in his path from traditional religious roles.

The Emcee continued to recount his journey into hip-hop, explaining how he transitioned from playing drums in church to picking up the microphone. It was during his high school years that he began to experiment with expressing himself through music. Instead of just beats on the drums, he found himself beating on tables and even his own chest, using these unconventional instruments to create rhythms.

His inspiration stemmed from the life he was living, running the streets and engaging in various activities. Crown had a wealth of experiences and stories to share, and he felt compelled to put them into words and music. He explained, “I had so much to talk about. I had things to say.” His unique perspective was shaped by his presence in different neighborhoods across all five boroughs of New York City.

In an era before the dominance of social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter, Crown was already a walking encyclopedia of street knowledge. He recalled his ability to provide firsthand accounts of events and occurrences in different boroughs, from the Bronx to Queens and Brooklyn. It wasn’t about scrolling through feeds or checking Twitter updates; it was about being present in those neighborhoods, experiencing them firsthand.

With a touch of humor and self-assuredness, Crown likened himself to a “world star” before the rise of platforms like WorldStarHipHop. His ability to stay connected and informed about street life and events made him a valuable source of information in his community. His journey into hip-hop was fueled by the desire to share his experiences and stories with the world, long before the era of viral videos and social media influencers.

In this way, Crown’s early experiences and unique perspective laid the foundation for his career in hip-hop, making him a storyteller of the streets and a voice for the neighborhoods he had traversed.
