Christopher Juel Barriere (July 11, 1972 - November 10, 2016), better known by his stage name 3-2, was an American rapper from Houston, Texas. He began his career when he signed to Rap-A-Lot Records as a member of the duo Convicts alongside Big Mike, with whom he released the album Convicts (1991). The group dissolved but Barriere stayed signed to Rap-A-Lot, appearing on albums by labelmates Geto Boys, 2 Low and DMG. He became a member of the Screwed Up Click and Blac Monks in the mid-1990s. Barriere also became affiliated with UGK; he mentored Pimp C on rapping and appeared on the group's albums Super Tight... (1994) and Ridin' Dirty (1996). 

In 1996, Barriere released his debut studio album, The Wicked Buddah Baby, on Rap-A-Lot. He left the label in the late-1990s and released most of his later albums on his label, Street Game Records. His final album was Str'8 Drop, a collaboration with rapper Timebomb.

On the night of 10 November 2016, Barriere was with three others at a gas station when a fight broke out between the four of them. Barriere was fatally shot in the head by one of the men with a pistol. Another one of the men was injured in the shooting, while a bystander was also shot. All four of the men knew each other.
