Chris Styles of Dangerous LLC, now known as C. Styles, gears up to embark on his individual music career. Known for working with a lengthy list of Artists such as Christina Aguilera, Trey Songz, Missy Elliot, LL Cool J, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones, Uncle Murda, Maino, French Montana, Stacey Barthe, Wale, Avant, Fabolous, and Llyod Banks of G-Unit. Though impressive, Styles work is better defined through multi-million selling singles such as “Window Shopper”, “Disco Inferno”, “Amusement Park” and “In My Hood”— all with G-Units own 50 Cent. If that does not ring a bell, you may have heard of him on Bet’s 106 & Park as a guest judge or read about him in King Magazine as he was titled “Forthcoming King”. Nonetheless, with it all, the Brooklyn representative remains humble and devoted to his music infested roots.
C. Styles was born and raised in Brooklyn. This East New York native is son to West Indian Parents, brother to five, Father to one, and Producer/Song Writer to many. Prior to creating and selling hits, the Producer/Artist earned a living assisting others by way of social services. Over the years, Styles has committed his talents and generosity to help bridge safety and education for young men and women in hopes of cultivating a responsible generation. Today, along with his continuation to build his musical empire, Styles remains committed to giving back.
Perhaps the key to Styles list of musical achievements is his ability to fully comprehend the needs of artists because he was once one. As a lead member of rap group “US” in the Late 90’S, Styles and his lyrical assassins independently sold 30,000 units and quickly created buzz both within and outside the music business. Though the group later decided to part ways and pursue individual goals, the complexity of Styles as an artist/producer/businessman guaranteed that this had only been the beginning.
One to two years later after parting ways from Super Group “US”, Styles entertained a conversation that would forever change his music career. He kept a small team close and focused on expanding their music abilities with his knowledge of the music business. That group later turned into the beginning of Styles first ever production company, titled Dangerous LLC. Styles and his team dedicated themselves to one heartless year of hard work which led to the start of a very interesting career. Styles and Dangergous LLC managed to sign a number of hard earned deals. He had his first artist, Deemi,signed to Atlantic Records. A short time later, he signed a 10 song deal with 50 Cent and G-Unit Records. He also worked on his first movie soundtrack with Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliot, and Will Smith featured in a Dream Works film.
Despite his successful reign, the Music Industry began to go through a change that every Producer noticed. With a decrease in record sales, a number of upcoming Producers/Beat Makers, and production tools becoming more accessible, the music industry shifted. Artists soon after began to form in-house production teams, ruling out outside sources.
C. Styles decided it was then time to focus on finding his own artist. One of few, Uncle Murda, which he signed to LA Reid’s Epic Label with Chris Lyte’s management help. Styles then rerouted his music plans and began to work on what he loved most, RnB. Leading him to find another artist, which he then signed to Monty Litman and Steve Riffkan at SRC Universal Records. Though Styles and his Artist sought plenty of success, shortlyafter, Riffkan decided to venture into new opprotunities, leaving Styles and his artist to mutually decide it was time to part ways.
The following year, Styles decided to completely step away from music and pursue TV Production with Michael Hershawn, Charles Suitt and ISH TV. Leading him to work on a number of TV opportunities. While simultaneously working on one project particularly different from the rest. He focused on himself, the Artist— now known as C. Styles and his Smash RnB felt record titles “When You Need Some Lovin”.
