Who is .Kuya? —

Jack of some trades, inept in everything else.

They say that an artist bio should always be written in the third person.

I say "no thanks."

My name is Chris, but you might call me '.Kuya'. I've spent a chunk of my adult life making music out of my bedroom, in an effort to chronicle all the ups and downs of my human experience. I like my art to reflect the honesty that I try to live by, and so I'm not going to drill you with bars, lying about why I think I'm God's gift to hip hop. Instead, I'm here to live alongside you and fill that space of curiosity that exists while you people-watch on your morning commute.

I am as average as they come, in constant pursuit of inspiration, trying to figure out life while cherishing all of it's best moments. These aren't exactly chill beats to relax and study to, more-so chill raps to get stuck in traffic to, made in the midst of realizing that grandiose visions of mainstream success could never be in focus through these prescription lenses.

At the time of writing this bio, my new project is in the works but I'll tell you more about that later.

But until then, as always, thank you for being you.
