We had the good fortune of connecting with Chris (Chritter T) Thomas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chris (Chritter T), what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Music always made me happy and was an escape in a certain way since I was a little boy. I truly Love it, all aspects of it from listening, creating, and making visuals with it. I wanted to give back to the people from what I got out of it. I always seen myself being apart of a rap group because I’m team oriented, heavily influenced by the likes of OutKast, Three Six Mafia, Young Bloodz, etc always wanted to do this with my Boyz however it started off good like that but since 2014 been finding ways to keep going to finish what I started. I’m in that hip hop feel good music type lane and now being a solo artist proving it can be done being yourself. Music is apart my many pursuits of Happiness in life so to inspire and give Love through it is why I do it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Knowing that if you put your mind and hard work into something you truly love anything is possible on your pursuit of happiness. It wasn’t until high school it came to me that you can be more than a fan of music and major artist, you can actually do this your self. I began free styling and learning how to write my own music. My voice set me apart from other rappers so I ran with that and began to focus on my lane. It wasn’t easy getting to the 2020’s with my music because Oct 2014 my two oldest kids got put into foster care by CPS. Blaming folks wasn’t gonna get me nowhere so I sobered up and put the music aside because I didn’t wanna look bad knowing I was going to be a full time single father so I fought to get them out and after a year I won in court. Raising CT Jr and Nevaeh ever since 2015. After being homeless in the beginning, they are scholar athletes, I had a major career change from retail to now helping kids with behavioral/learning issues it has been a grind getting back to the music and us living in peace. I picked it back up and been going hard ever since realeasing 4 music Videos in 2021 with the Ep coming December or early 2022. I stayed Humble refocused on my faith and persevered to be the best Chritter I can so that I can give back and spread heaven on Earth. Have a motto Focus, Finish, Win! You Focus on the things and people that are your happiness, You Finish the obstacles or challenges that you will face in life and In the end with your Hardwork and dedication you shall Win and reap the rewards. Mind, Body, Spirit 333 what I live by. I Would love the world to know Living is beautiful and the love we are blessed with and capable of sharing with each other is Life. I’m not here to be famous, I’m here to be a Light within the dark and prove we can all Shine in our own way that leads to togetherness. God is great and we are Great. I’m here to be a living example of that and will utilizie my music and art for all to see.
