The Houston-based entrepreneur and hip-hop artist strives to constantly elevate, adapt, and grow through his music, his business ventures, and his relationships. These traits helped him become a mixtape phenomenon before he had a major recording contract. Chamillionaire has managed to become an Internet forerunner at a time when others have failed to capitalize on the Web's reach, a platinum plus selling artist during a time of sagging record sales, and a businessman who runs several successful companies.
It's a formula that enabled his platinum album, The Sound of Revenge to sell more than 1.5 million copies. His Houston based Fly Rydes car shop (which he co-owns with his business partner Ernest) designs, rents, and sells cars to corporations and high net worth individuals. He owns a tour bus company, and his emerging Chamillitary Entertainment label has a talented roster, including rappers Famous AKA Lil Ken and Yung Ro, and R&B act Tony Henry. He has also become a real estate magnate.
Chamillionaire has won a Grammy, an MTV Video Music Award, two BET Hip Hop Awards, and he was certified by the RIAA as the biggest selling individual ringtone artist in history. He's even seen the legendary Weird Al Yankovich turn "Ridin" into a smash hit parody, "White and Nerdy."
