Rapper Young Chris Talks Upcoming Album 'Alive' with Producer Rico Love

(AllHipHop News) Philly rapper Young Chris took the time to sit with AllHipHop.com for an exclusive interview, as he records his new album Alive.

Young Chris is the flagship artist on producer Rico Love's Division 1 label, which is distributed by Universal/Motown.

"It's a blessing first off for people to still embrace me, to be anticipating my solo project after 15 years," said Young Chris, who was signed to Jay-Z, Damon Dash and Kareem "Biggs" Burke's Roc-A-Fella Records, as a member of The Young Gunz, with Neef Buck.

"I think I got 15 years in right now, [I] met Jay and them around 14, 15," Young Chris told AllHipHop.com. "[Now] it's a blessing to work with Rico."

Young Chris, who was recently featured on Meek Mill's hit single "Welcome To My House Party," is almost finished Alive, which will land in stores this Spring.

"We [are] shooting for the album in May so we drop that single now, get on the road work it, do what we got to do. Club dates to arenas," said Young Chris, who has recorded songs with Slim from 112, Fabolous, Kelly Rowland, Mario and others.
