Rico Luxx -- born Christopher Joseph McClendon in Savannah, Georgia, and formerly known as "C-Mac" -- is an up and coming artist in Cincinnati, Ohio. Growing up as an Army brat, Chris was forced to move around a lot. He lived in many different states such as Georgia, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin. Chris then moved across the country to Seoul, Korea, finding his passion for music when he was the age of 13. Starting out rhyming with his friends, he realized the potential he had as a Hip-Hop artist. His peers caught wind of his talent as he started to DJ a lot of parties. While chasing his dreams, Chris came back to Cincinnati and formed the group GRS (GetRichSquad.) GRS released their first public mix-tape titled "HuntingSeason2k11." However, the group eventually split up and went their separate ways. Rico Luxx then began focusing on his solo career. He released his first solo mixtape entitled "R.A.W," under the alias "C-Mac" on Datpiff.com. Since, he has been working on other solo projects to further advance himself in the industry. "Rico Luxx: The Black Diamond EP" is scheduled to release June of 2014.
