A man of humble beginnings, raised on the streets of Kansas City, Kansas, with some
guidance from his grandmother, Christopher “Boss” Black learned the art of hustling at a
young age. A basketball star at Washington High School in Kansas City, Chris sustained a
future-altering injury that caused him to lose several of the scholarships he had been
offered to attend college. While watching notable alums like NBA player and coach Earl
Watson thriving in their passion, Chris decided to thrive in his passion and began to
pursue a career in the music industry. “I’m an observer, says Black, and I been watching
individuals like Mac Dre and Fat Tone for some time.” And with that, Chris decided to
combine the art of hustling with his love for music, and began to believe that he would be
one of the greatest to ever do it in the music industry at just the age of 18. Chris knew to
achieve his dream of owning an entertainment conglomerate, he needed multiple streams
of revenue to sustain what would later be known as B.B. Enterprises LLC.
Chris stepped onto the business scene in 2005 with a company known as Transtech
Merchant Group. As a member of the merchant group, Chris looked to Andy Frankel for
guidance and growth by day and studied the trends and moguls, Sean (Puffy) Combs and
Shawn (Jay Z) Carter, of the industry by night. Heavily influenced by Frankel, Chris learned
about the credit card industry in 2014 and this put Chris in a position to grow his
connections and network. After several years of being a merchant businessman, Chris
decided to completely dedicate his talents to the entertainment industry.
Known in the music industry as Boss Black, Chris is now the founder and CEO of BB
Enterprises (entertainment conglomerate based out of Dallas, Texas). Chris got his start in
the nightclubs in 2006 by way of Houston as a party promoter. He was approached by a
rising artist’s mom who asked him to be her son’s manager after his strong business
mindset and charisma impressed her when Chris booked her son as an act for the club.
That son was TrillReal who is known for his emphatic vocals on Lil’ Wayne’s Carter I hooks.
After his success with TrillReal, Chris began to manage Trapstar Click in partnership with
Universal Republic record label. In addition to being responsible for the success of Trapstar
Click and their hit “Get It Bihh”, Chris is the force behind The GS BOYZ and their platinum hit
“Stanky Leg” and is credited with the successful launching of R. Prophet of Nappy Roots solo
career. After 10 years of working in the role of manager, Chris began to line up investors to
make his dream a reality and with that, BB Enterprise was born in March of 2018.
Comprised of BB Management Firm and BB Music, the record label, Chris has put together a
dynamic group of up and coming artist that are changing the game and headlining tour
after tour around the US and in every genre possible.
