Born under the sign of Sagittarius in December, Morris Christopher Childs, p/k/a MoChilds is on a mission to be all that he can be via his strong commitment to self, body, his spirituality and his family.
This Indianapolis born and raised artist was influenced greatly by his Mom whom taught him to be expressive through creative expression, the rapper enjoys blending musical genres based greatly on his upbringing. As a child he was exposed to gospel, and as he grew older he became very interested in big band music. “With the ills of segregation and racism, African-Americans used music as a way to mask the pain”, say the very articulate emcee, he continues, “The passion put into that music was the outlet no doubt.”
As he ventured into high school he expanded his horizons into liking acts as diverse as: The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Dave Matthews Band and Incubus. He considers THE CHRONIC 2001 by Dr. Dre to be the best hip-hop album of all-time. His personal favorite rapper is Rakim.
Having lived in the Midwest (Indianapolis and Cincinnati), Austin, Texas; Studio City, California; and New York City, New York, Childs feels that this diverse background has helped him embrace various genres and cultures.
To that end he describes his music as “pop-hop”, a blend of pop culture with elements of hip-hop. His first-ever single “And They Say” is a spot on example of such. He feels having a unified mind sets him apart from the rest of the field in hip-hop. “Everyone is trying to be the best rapper, the best baller, and I am just trying to be me with the goal of entertaining people all over the world”, says Childs with a marked determination.
