Meet 'Made in Staten Island's Christian "CP" Patterson Before He Heads "Up Top"

By

Tonight, MTV will premiere their newest show, Made in Staten Island, which follows the youngest members of mafia families as they struggle to break out of the criminal lives they were born into. "We grew up surrounded by the mob," explains one cast member in a trailer. "But now, we're trying to find our own way."

Ahead of the premiere, fans are already trying to make sense of Christian ("on the street, people call me CP") Patterson's storyline, wondering whether he'll soon end up in jail like his dad or instead choose, in his words, the "straight life." 

"Our crew was born in the streets and now they're looking for a way out," the 20-year-old said in a trailer. Read on for what we know about Christian's life and his family's history of crime.
