Where did your name come from?
When I was younger I used the name ChrisMichaelJr which is pretty my birth name. I stopped
going by that around about 2013-2014 and started going by PeatrParkr. Me and one of my best
friends use to make music together and he decided to take a hiatus from music so when he did
I wanted to change my name until he decided to start making music again (which he hasn’t)
one day I was listening to one of our first songs we dropped together and there was a line
he said “I’m feeling super I’m Peter Parker” and something clicked when
I was listen to that song.
One of the last song me and him worked on together was a mix to Flava in Ya Ear
and I started freestyle while I was at work and I said“ First name Peatr Last
name Parkr flow so sick you might consider calling the doc, ock I smoke pot
they see the smoke they know I’m hot..” and I really digged where I was
going with it and just kinda ran with it. But I didn’t want to spell it
like Peter Parker because it was like spider man so I googled different
ways to spell it and peater came up on urban dictionary as “A person
who eats p***y” thought it was hilarious and was like that’s the one
but I didn’t like how it was spelled so I dropped the E in it and
that’s where Peatr came from and I dropped the E on Parker and
that was the beginning of Peatr Parkr.
What are you currently working on?
The last few month a have been working on producing a lot of beats that I plan on selling soon
(I’ve already sold a few this year) and I been writing songs that my wife has been singing over
beats I’ve made that we plan on releasing soon.
What is your latest release?
My latest release is my single 6Feet which is now streaming on all platforms which I been
planning on shooting a video for soon.
When is your next release?
My next release is a collab EP with my fiancé Camille of mostly pop music that I been producing
and writing it all myself for the both of us. So stay tuned for that.
