For someone who scored one of the biggest hits in recent
memory with 2005's "Ridin'" -- which earned the Houston
MC a Grammy and sold more ringtones than any song in
history – Chamillionaire sounds awfully grumpy. "Money
don't do nothing but bring you trouble," he says in the
lead-in to "I Think I Love You," a tragic tale where cash
is the object of the rapper's affection. It's a recurring
sentiment on Cham's second disc, on which he lashes out
at the record industry, money-grubbing ex-friends and lazy
rappers shilling “crap music.” Luckily, he backs up the
“Pimp Mode” is a syrupy Texas gem, with acoustic guitar
and a stellar verse from hometown legend Bun B; the soulful
“We Breakin' Up” is one of several cuts on which the MC
sings as much as he raps; and the album-closing manifesto,
“The Ultimate Victory” -- on which Cham expresses sympathy
for media-dogged celebs like Eminem and Britney and admits,
“I'm still filled with doubt” -- might be the most
personally reflective hip-hop track since Slim Shady
himself stepped to the mike.

The real deal. Fuck the re-encoders.

I'm not gonna front, I downloaded this at first, but I went and bought the CD after listening to it. Music like this needs to be supported! Chamillionaire is an anomaly in rap; an ultra-rare combination of catchiness and pop sensibility, together with meaning and depth. "Evening News", "Hip Hop Police" and the sublime "We Breakin Up" are perfect examples of what I mean.... Support Cham!!!
