Full Biography

Adopting the moniker Chingy, he signed a contract with fellow southern rapper Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace imprint and recorded his major label debut, "Jackpot", with up-and-coming production team the Trak Starz.

Having built a solid reputation in the Southern states Chingy earned himself a slot opening for fellow St Louis native, Nelly in 2002. While on the road with Nelly he attracted even more support and built a widespread fan base.

His first single, "Right Thurr", after enjoying constant US radio play was released in June 2003 and was tailor made for club success, combining lazy Dirty South beats with Chingy's leering rap about beautiful women. The track climbed into the US Top 5, and his album "Jackpot", sold 156,000 copies in it's first week of release landing it at No. 2 on the US Hot 100 and R&B/Hip-hop charts.

Now about to release his second single, "Holidae In" (featuring Ludacris and Snoop Dogg), which has already proved to be a huge hit in the US, Chingy is heading out on the road with Ludacris on a twenty-seven-date US tour, and we predict that you'll be hearing much more from this drawling Southern rapper in the near future.
