If Chris Miles has proved anything this year, it’s that talent has no age limit. The 15 year-old MC has impressed everyone from music industry heavyweights like 50 Cent and Mac Miller to legendary producers such as Statik Selektah, with his controlled rapid fire flow and complex rhyme patterns. All of his hard work is evident in the release of debut EP Birth of Cool. Miles spits about challenges he faces as a young rapper and love. In his new music video for “Conversations,” Miles shows how interconnected love and music truly are. Set in New York City, he and his crush roam the streets connecting over their passion for Mobb Deep, Kendrick Lamar, Pac, Biggie, Eminem and J. Cole. Yahoo! claims “Chris is proof that there’s hope for hip-hop’s next generation.” Today, Miles is thrilled to be partnering with SnapChat for the official release of “Conversations.” Fans can head over to the discovery section of SnapChat and find his brand new music video under the Warner Chappell circle. To view the music video now head on over to Yahoo!.
“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 Miles has for the girl who challenges him musically. They both love hip-hop, but champion different artists and albums. As Miles 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 Miles has for his companion is heartfelt.With “Conversations,” what separates Miles 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 Miles 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

For the past five years, Miles has been studying rap and honing his skills amid family issues, bullying, and hate from doubters who can’t see past his age. On Birth of Cool, the hard work and determination is evident as Miles easily rides beats from hitmakers such as Jake One on “Time.” What ties the entire project together is Chris’ resolve to make every song relatable to his audience, whether they be high school classmates or 30+ year olds who came of age during rap’s golden era. In the last year, Miles has grown from a young lyricist to seasoned songwriter. Not only are his bars sharper, but he’s added a keen sense for melody to his arsenal. As TheSmokingSection states Miles, “displays the type of promise that makes it easy for him to stand out from the rest of the pack.” The Birth of Cool is only the beginning for one of the East Coast’s most promising young voices.
