When Chamillionaire and I were Ridin’ Dirty together!

chamillionaireWhat’s up y’all. Today we will talk about this rapper that is internationally known and who has contributed to the HipHop industry with some really interesting songs. I am talking about Chamillionaire, straight outta Houston. He was born Hakeem Seriki  on November 28, 1979. He has been a rapper and entrepreneur. Cham is the CEO for Chamillitary Entertainment. Chamillionaire was also the founder and an original member of The Color Changin’ Click until the group split in 2005. He began his career independently with local releases in 2002, including collaboration album Get Ya Mind Correct with fellow Houston rapper and childhood friend Paul Wall. He signed to Universal Records in 2005 and released The Sound of Revenge under Universal. It included hit singles “Turn It Up” featuring Lil’ Flip and the number-one, Grammy-winning hit “Ridin'” featuring Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n Harmony. Ultimate Victory followed in 2007, which was notable for not containing any profanity

On November 19, 2004, Chamillionaire’s younger brother, Rasaq Seriki, was allegedly attacked by Paul Wall and his entourage at a nightclub. Chamillionaire expressed his disappointment in Paul Wall, he argues that they all used to be family and that these events should not have happened. Before the entire incident between Paul Wall and Rasaq they were all part of the group called “The Color Changin’ Click” which now has become fragmented. Chamillionaire released a diss track with Rasaq titled “Go Head”.[69]
The dispute ended in 2010, when the pair reunited for a full tour. Paul Wall stated “It took a long time and us growing. You know, we started off as a group and a lot of times when you go your separates ways, a lot of people say, “Oh you can’t do it without him” and so you wanna prove them wrong. I know for me, I wanted to prove everyone wrong and prove that I could make it on my own.” Chamillionaire replied; “We had been bumping into each other a lot. It’s kinda been died down for a little bit now but we just kinda needed that stamp of approval. I think the tour kinda just solidifies it for other people. It’s not like today we just stopped beefing, we stop beefing along time ago, but nobody believed us.”

But let’s not focus on the negative side of that, right! I would like to share with y’all these two songs with you. Watch the following videos:

Chamillionaire – Ridin’ ft. Krayzie Bone

Ciara – Get Up ft. Chamillionaire

In 2010, Chamillionaire came to my hometown – Belo Horizonte, Brazil – and unexpectedly, he invited people to come up stage and rap with him. He said something like “If you can rap, you are welcome to come show what you got!” That is when I got so excited and hopped up on the stage and rapped with one of my favorite rappers. I don’t want to sound full of myself or rude, but he was feeling me. You can see his face on the pictures. Wish I could have found the video, though.
