Someone get this guy a spelling coach. Continuing a trend of questionably named singles, Chingy will follow up "Right Thurr" with his Ludacris and Snoop Dogg collaboration, "Holidae In."
"The song is basically about getting crackin' in a hotel, you know, you and your partners," Chingy explained. "It [starts] off, like, my homeboy [calls] me up, and he's like, 'I got it crackin' down here at this party at the hotel. Go get some drizzink.' ... So I go get the drink and I get in the car and I stroll, hittin' blocks. ... When I get in the hotel, I see some ladies going up there, so I [tell] them to come with me and we go to the party.
"Snoop is one of my favorite rappers, so it was a highlight," he added.
Musically, the second single from the recently released Jackpot blends elements of Chingy's St. Louis scene with the sounds of Atlanta, home to the famous head of his Disturbing Tha Peace label.
"In Atlanta, period, they just super crunk, they super-duper crunk, and just shouting and throwing bows, which is all good. I love that music," Chingy said. "But St. Louis is more on a ... we just making you dance, you swangin' with us. And at the same time, it's street too. Everybody done been through their little street thing ... but we make you party. It's fun, energy music, you dig?"
Chingy will shoot a video for "Holidae In" on July 30. Until then, he'll continue promoting "Right Thurr," which he recently performed on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."
"I ain't been home in two months," the rapper said, reflecting on his sudden success. "I've been tired, but it's mostly fun, 'cause it's what I love to do — performing, videos, the interviews ...
"I love doing this, that why it's right here," he added, showing off the giant tattoos of music notes on his forearms. "Music. I love it!"
