1. Christopher Wallace (Biggie Smalls)

Jay Z said it best: "The only Christopher we acknowledge is Wallace" because even 10 years after his untimely death, Biggie is still one of the greatest rappers to ever do it.

2. Chris Francis (Frank Ocean)

Because Frank will lie to us and then put out music so beautiful that we have no choice but to forgive him. A true gift.

3. Chris Rock

Because the comedian-turned-actor has been entertaining us for over a decade. His Good Hair documentary alone is worth more history book pages than Columbus.

12. Chris from Everybody Hates Chris.

NBC

Because despite the show's title, Chris and his family were fun to watch. Especially at the time, because there were no other black families on network TV.

13. Christopher Gardner (both the real one and the character from Pursuit of Happiness).

Both the real one and Will Smith’s excellent portrayal of him in the movie Pursuit of Happiness.

14. Milan Christopher

VH1

Ok hear me out lol. Despite all the messiness, he was part of the Love & Hip Hop's first same-sex couple, so he still ranks higher than stealing a group of people's land and culture if you ask me.
