MP3: Chris Miles – “Topic of Discussion”
15 Year-Old New York Rapper Proves His Worth On Statik-Selektah Produced Cut, Released In Anticipation Of His Birth Of Cool EP
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
“The next thing smoking out of New York.” – FreeOnSmash
To say the odds are stacked against Chris Miles would be an understatement. The 15 year-old everyone is talking about has bars, even if he’s almost half the age of your favorite artist. Despite the skepticism, everyone from 50 Cent to Mac Miller has taken notice of Chris Miles and recognizes he’s skilled beyond his years. On his new Statik Selektah-produced song, “Topic of Discussion,” which debuts via TheSmokingSection, Miles brings his propensity for rapid fire delivery and dense bars to prove his point: he’s the one people are talking about around the water cooler.
From the outset Chris Miles uses “Topic of Discussion” to address the elephant in the room…the skepticism surrounding his come-up. Unfazed, Chris Miles spits bars like, “Thanks for the free promotion, I see that these people roasting me, but it’s easy to type words that don’t mean nothing,” over a smooth Selektah beat. From the crisp drums to the turntable scratches, “Topic of Discussion,” fits perfectly into the mold of that classic New York hip-hop sound. Being so new to the scene, Miles is far from silencing all of the doubters, but “Topic of Discussion” is a great introduction to a rising talent.
Chris Miles’ Birth of Cool EP releases on December 15th.

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 getting ready to release his first of many free EP’s – Birth of Cool.
