Memphis native Chris Travis makes hazy, narcotic trap inspired by artists like Three 6 Mafia, Tommy Wright III, and Boosie Badazz.
He first gained notice as a member of SpaceGhostPurrp’s Raider Klan, which he joined in 2011 after the recommendation of members Amber London and Key Nyata. He appeared on some of their mixtapes and performed with them, but he left around 2013 to concentrate on his solo work, as well as his Water Boyz label. Mixtapes appeared at a rate of about four per year, and Travis’ 2013 video “Crunch Time” became a viral hit. In 2014, Travis and fellow ex-Raider Klan members Xavier Wulf and Eddy Baker joined up with Michigan-based rapper Bones to form Seshollowaterboyz. Travis also collaborated with Bones on a 2014 EP titled SeaBeds, as well as Robb Bank$ for 2015’s No Trespassing. Travis also guested on tracks by Yung Simmie, $uicideboy$, and Fat Nick.
Chris Travis co-headlined with Xavier Wulf and Bones on his American Wasteland Tour in 2018 and Eddy Baker on his WaterSZN Tour 2017 as direct and only support.
