17 Feb Soultrain.com Profile: C-Po
New Jersey native and vibrant rapper/producer Christopher Porter, or C-Po for short, has been making much noise since making a hilarious parody of Sean Kingston’s “Beautiful Girls” entitled “Homicidal” several years ago. Since then, he’s gone on to release projects including debut album Music Impossible in 2009 and 2012’s M.O.T.Y.(Mixtape Of The Year). Part of his appeal has come from music, particularly for celebrating, yet clean enough for anyone to listen without blushing. Not that his music is soft however. In fact, his first video to premiere on BET’s 106&Park, “Hold it Down,” featured an eye-popping Rosa Acosta.
Though mainstream hasn’t fully caught on to C-Po’s movement, he’s doing just fine. When he’s not getting song placements on ESPN highlight reels, he is getting booked to performe for everything ranging from business events to Bar Mitzvahs. “I believe the private events I perform at, including the Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, give me a huge advantage over my competition,” explained C-Po. “I’m touching a demographic of people on the weekly basis who don’t even know what Thisis50, Rap-Radar, or WorldStarHipHop [are]. Not to mention the young fans at these events are today’s biggest purchasers of music.”
