Chris Rivers | Sincerely Me | Music
“Sincerely Me" is a heartfelt homage that I used as a letter to my father, Big Pun. I wanted to tell him about my life and the things I have been dealing with since his passing. My emotions range from forgiveness, hardships to triumph. It’s a lyrically compact display that I feel shows my growth as both a human and as an artist.” - Chris Rivers The song arrives with the announcement of Chris Rivers' upcoming G.I.T.U. (Greatest In The Universe), which will be released August 16th via Mello Music Group.
