About Hurrican Chris
Chris Dooley, Jr. (born 1989), better known by his stage name Hurricane Chris, is a rapper based in Shreveport, Louisiana. After local success as an underground performer, he entered the national scene with his hit song "A Bay Bay". Hurricane Chris first began rapping in high school, where he placed in talent shows. Later, his independently-released singles "You Hear Me?" and "Yep" gained him local attention. After hearing a chant of "Hey Bay Bay!" by local DJ Hollywood Bay Bay, Hurricane Chris modified the chant to "A Bay Bay" to his hit song of the same name. Atlanta, Georgia-based producer Mr. Collipark was fascinated by the song and later helped Chris be signed to J Records in 2007, when his major-label debut 51/50 Ratchet was released in September. Soon afterwards, Asylum Records released You Hear Me?, a compilation of songs Chris recorded before 51/50 Ratchet including "You Hear Me?" and "Yep". In August 2007, a mixtape of his titled Louisi-Animal had also been released. "The Hand Clap" would be the next single off 51/50 Ratchet. In an interview with Samantha Morgan of the Baton Rouge, Louisiana newspaper The Advocate, he stated that he came up with "Hurricane" as part of his stage name from his ability to silence crowds in his performances, "like a hurricane had just blown through". He is also set to do guest vocals for the upcoming rap album Tha Carter III by Lil Wayne.
