In Case You’ve Been Missing…Hurricane Chris

Name: Hurricane Chris

Where You Find Him: On Twitter, @HurricaneChris6

What You Might Know Him For and Why You Could’ve Cared: The Louisiana-bred rhymer had a string of singles back in 2007, the most successful of which was the ringtone favorite “A Bay Bay.” The clap-happy song peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, and served as the lead on the braided rapper’s debut album, 51/50 Ratchet; the cut’s official remix featured The Game, Lil Boosie, Baby, E-40, Angie Locc of Lava House and Jadakiss. The Polo Grounds/J Records signee’s 2007 debut album hit No. 2 on the Billboard Rap Albums charts. His follow up, however, Unleashed, from 2009, came and went, though it did contain the single “Halle Berry (She’s Fine).”

Current Status: Chris was dropped from his major label, and has yet to release his third album, reportedly titled Return of the Hurricane. He’s active on Twitter. —Adam Fleischer
