Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) announced today the signing of Platinum Hip-Hop Artist, Chamillionaire, to an exclusive, worldwide publishing deal.
Following his major-label debut The Sound Of Revenge released on Universal Records, Chamillionaire is poised to take his place among Houston's current hip-hop elite, while the single "Ridin'" produced by Happy P and featuring Krayzie Bone is residing for the second week at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100 R&B/Hip-Hop Singles, and Top 10 on Hot Rap Tracks.
The name "Chamillionaire" represents the unique style that defines the talented urban artist, and his ability to change and adapt on the fly, forcing people to respect the true breadth of his talent. And just as this MC moniker exemplifies, Chamillionaire is anything but predictable and most certainly versatile.
The Sound Of Revenge, was the breakthrough story of the holiday season, debuting No. 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. The Sound Of Revenge is the highest debut week of a new Universal album since 2003.
Chamillionaire's emergence as the hottest new hip-hop artist to explode nationwide was further confirmed by a burst of accolades and activity surrounding the coveted release. A chorus of nationally syndicated tomes such as Rolling Stone are raving about the debut disc -- "the next superstar in Houston," "hip-hop takeover," says the celebrated magazine, and USA Today proclaims: "Chamillionaire proves he's ready for the big time with The Sound Of Revenge."
Managed by Charles Chavez, Chamillionaire joins UMPG's successful R&B/Hip-Hop roster, which includes 50 Cent, G-Unit, Ciara, Chris Brown, Mariah Carey, Ice Cube, Ludacris, Amerie, Ashanti, Mary J. Blige, Printz Board, amongst others.
