The kid in the video below is a 15 year old boy called Chris Myles. A few years back Chris sent the below video into America’s Got Talent but didn’t manage to get through to the show. Since then Chirs has persisted and kept following his dream of becomming a world famous rapper.

Then this month his dreams came true when he signed a $1.5million recording deal with Warner/Chappell, with a $182,500 advance for his debut album.

Many people are understandably sceptical about the young boy’s ability to rap about real issues when he has such little life experience. He has however caught the attention of the people that matter.

It will be interesting to see how far Chris gets with his career but I say good luck to him and good on him for following his dream.
