Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Born and raised in Camden, NJ as Christopher Funches, Funch the Camden Kid began his rap career in the streets by freestyling and gaining experience. Rapping then formed into an outlet for expression and soon enough, a steady flow produced and he saw himself taking the profession seriously. Freestyling in the streets was accompanied by selling drugs, though, and soon after Funch found himself incarcerated. Being behind bars did not stray him away from his love of rap, so he found a way to

“Keep in tune with the music scene.” Funch said,

“Everyone from my area was working and I loved it but it was tough not being home to be a part of that wave, especially since I play a major part in it.”

He continued, “They all had their turn and now it’s simply my turn.”

Once Funch was released from prison and made sure his family was situated the way they needed to be, he made his way into the studio and allowed his rhythm to flow for everyone to hear once again. It took him about 8 months to produce his most recent body of work being that he was getting back into his own rhythm of things. On this project, Funch has production from Grammy Award winning producer JD Walker. He also has work produced with some of the top producers from his residential area such as Don Michael Jr, Gliss, D-Lit Beats, Notiq, Wayne On The Stix, Sen City and Go Grizz. Included in his project as features are Tdot iLLdude, G. Nutt, Money Carsin, Porta Rich, Jaison Toro, A1, Don Michael Jr. and his POS brother Haven.

The rap industry is not at all new to this rising artist since he has bodies of art already released. Back in 2006, Funch released his mixtape named “Goldie's Back” and sold over 5,000 hard copies; in 2007, Both Sides of the Bridge was released with Oschino and Funch sold 10,000 hard copies; in 2017, his “I'm Sorry” mixtape sold over 10,000 hard copies. Funch the Camden Kid has performed at every nightclub in South Jersey and Philadelphia and is nowhere near done with achieving his dreams. “My ultimate goal is to make great music to touch everyone who is in or has been in my position. I want to help them get through and get rich in the process,” he said.

According to Funch, him and his team are pushing the project released May 28th, and they look forward to producing more work that is set to drop in the August 2018.
