Houston's rapper and entrepreneur Chamillionaire is 3 for 3: He received a "Best New Artist" nomination for the 2006 BET Awards, his national debut album, The Sound Of Revenge, was Certified Platinum and his second hit single from "Ridin'," featuring Krayzie Bone, is the #1 Song on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart all in one week.
Within the last year Chamillionaire has become a prominent force on the music scene, his first hit single "Turn It Up," featuring Lil' Flip was top 10 at Crossover Radio. Not one to sit on his laurels, Chamillionaire's second single "Ridin'," was #1 at Crossover Radio for 6 consecutive weeks, while the video is in elite rotation on MTV 2 and heavy rotation on BET.
As if taking over radio and video airwaves wasn't enough, with the over 3.3 million profile views on MySpace, over 500,000 Digital Sales (out selling Nelly "Grillz," and T.I. "What You Know") and with 1.4 million Ringtone Sales, Chamillionaire's incredible success in the digital arena is commanding everyone's attention, proving that he is a force to be reckoned with.
The one-time regional rapper, who used to sell his mix-tapes out of the trunk of his car, has not only proven that he has arrived, but that he is here to stay. And if your still not a believer, check out USA Today which states, "Rapper ridin' hot on Shakira's heels," or his upcoming performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on June 23rd.
