Dancer, singer, verser

From major-label-signed MC to longtime spoken-word host, Son-Christopher has a host of talents. In a single performance, he might dance, sing and sling verse using his baritone voice -- an often-complimented aspect of his narrator day gig at the Georgia Aquarium. Through it all, Son-Christopher is constantly evolving.

Reminisce: The Soul of Hip-Hop Live at MJQ on Tues., April 18, is a chance for fans to try rap classics -- karaoke-style, with a live band. It's also his latest project.

"This is my opportunity as an improv artist, freestyle performance artist, to be a DJ. I don't own a stack of wax, but what I do have is the knowledge of classic hip-hop and I can convey that to a band and then bring that forward on stage."

The Mighty I Am, a partnership with Free Forum Xchange co-host Shawn Kimani, has produced events in Atlanta since 1998.

The "I Am" symbol on Son-Christopher's Philoso-Tees™ shirt is "the universal sign that it's time to manifest the best." A launch party for the line was held recently at the T-Shirt Construction Co., where the shirts are sold, and also featured powerful visual art from Akilah. Check the "canvas"!

Son-Christopher also works for the National Artists League, an industry resource for burgeoning and national artists, from the Fresh Air Foundation to Anthony David.

Reminisce is dedicated to the late DJ OX||Son's mother| "Milini Antanez| who bought me my first 'Rapper's Delight|' which blew my mind away||hearing that| they were speaking a language that I knew I would continue to speak for the rest of my life."
