Current Status

Hurricane Chris also had an endorsement deal with the Italian athletic clothing company FILA.

He decided to take a break from recording and performing to focus on his son and on other priorities. In a 2017 interview, he explained that by becoming a star at a very young age, he had lost his own “moral compass.”

He said he had too much money at too young an age and no real guidance.

He felt that he needed to reset his priorities and be around people who genuinely cared about him, not just about the money he was making.
