    Young Homie video was true, real, authentic and had a beautiful feel-good vibe about it. Chris Rene’s sister, friends, his sons were all in the video. It is so rare to have a song that is inspiring, positive, catchy and super swag all at the same time. And do I need to say it.. Chris is hot! :).
