Chris Bivins is an American recording artist, director and actor. Born in Washington, DC. Before rising to stardom, Bivins became one of four musicians featured on the 2012 hit CW network show The Next, where he made connections with experienced names in music like Gloria Estefan and Joe Jones. Soon after he became the official protégé of Nelly after the St. Louis emcee showed up at his front door announcing that he'd be his personal mentor. In 2014, the singer headlined the BET College Tour recap show along side Luke James and Mila J, and ended the tour by performing on the 106 & Park stage. With the combination of Chris' single "Zone" and his behind the scene tour blogs, Chris landed a hosting gig and his own segment on BET.com. Coca Cola backed the young artist and co-created the "Flava Zone". The Flava Zone keeps you up on what's hot, what's hip and what's trending. In 2016 Chris joined the ranks of Joynar Lucas and Token by becoming the winner of Kato's annual No Sucka Mc's Rap contest. You can catch Chris now in front and behind many of BET's commercials.
