    Chingy is so respected by cops whenever he gets pulled over and a handgun is found, the cops arrest Prodigy instead.

    Tip did a good choice here. Just get on a label and start working in the stu. Pharrell and he got good chemistry

    I hope he keeps the name and the covers match

  • Chingy neither confirms or denies rumours

    Ti and pharell have both hinted at Chingy weighing in heavily on this album in terms of laying down his own bars plus ghost writing and assisting pharell with production. I don't know if there's any truth to this, it seems like an odd combination but the fact that when addressed Chingy refuses to confirm or deny just keeps the rumour mill going. TMZ reported that TI and Chingy were spotted at an exclusive bar an cafe sharing a cafe latte, but you can't trust TMZ

      How would Chingy come back? Even if Dr Dre signed him, he would still bomb.

    • ^'

      Good question, it's been reported from a related source that Chingy and the head of TMZ have been spotted at an exclusive bar cafe sharing a cafe latte so that's a possibility, or it could be that all the rumours are true , only time will tell if next year is a major comeback/ rebirth. The fact that Chingy refuses to confirm or deny though just fuels the rumours

      I was starting to forget who chingy is. Did chingy pay tmz for them to say that?

    • ^

      I know, I'm getting sick of hearing about Chingy, I thought he was done for. It's because there's been a lot of rumours running around about him being the one to watch out for in2014 according to TMZ, segment on the scoop on who's hot to comeback,but you can't trust TMZ. The fact that Chingy refuses to confirm or deny the rumours though isn't helping

      What's with the chingy comments? Isn't ja rule already enough? Chingy's fallen the fuck off.

  • Jackpot

    Hopefully, T.I. features Chingy on his next album. That would be awesome. Chingy and Full Dekk are gonna take over the game next year. Y'all niggas watch out. #FullDekk

    I know this has nothing to do with the article but when you say the word nigga, and forgive me if I sound racist (that's not my intention), why is it that rappers are cool when black people say it but are offended when white people say the word nigga?

    • fuccya

      You just used whatever you have to call the N-word (not to insult sophisticated and sensitive niggas on hhdx) like ten times. But no offense taken, my nigga.

    • Chris Etrata

      @J I certainly never intended the use of nigga to be deregatory. And KC does gave a great answer. When black people use nigga, they take it as another way of saying friend or homie. However, whites can't use the word nigga without being criticized because it brings back ancestor's memories of being called nigg*r, which is where nigga came from. I understand now. Still, I don't think the word, nigga should really be said at all.

    • J

      Great answer from KC, I totally agree with the fact that the word used by a white or black person has a different meaning and has stemmed off from the original words definition and use. Chris thinks he can use the word the same meaning as his black friends but the fact of the history and continuation of black inequality and discrimination he can't even though he has good intentions. A white person can not use both of the words definitions.

    • Chris Etrata

      First off, please don't get the idea that I like the word, nigga. its a slang term that young kids don't know the origin about. Nigga came from the term nigg*r which is a racial slur white people use against blacks. I'm only asking the question because I hear rappers use the word nigga all the time in half their lyrics (YG made a whole song where half of the lyrics consist of the word, nigga) yet get offended when white people use it.

    • Chris Etrata

      I don't condone the word nigga but I've seen black people (really hate to generalize people but you don't hear whites calling each other niggas) calling their black friends niggas, yet get offended when their white friends use it. I have black friends and they call each other niggas yet when I try to use that word to be part of the crowd, they get offended. I'm not sure why the hypocrisy? Rappers use nigga all the time yet get offended when a white person calls them, my nigga.

      If you get a chance, go on espns website and watch first take from today. There was an excellent debate over this very issue and Stephen A. Smith give an outstanding explanation for why its not ok for whites to use the word. We don't use the word the way whites use it. Whites created the word to demean our african slave ancestors as they considered them less than human. We reclaimed the word and turned it into a term of endearment to try and strip it of its power. Blacks get called foolish for doing this but there are many other races who do the same with racial slurs used against them. If for no other reason, you shouldn't use the word because we ask you not to. I think we have the right to make that request. Don't you? After all, it was our race that was murdered, raped, enslaved, tortured, lynched, and kidnapped from our from our continent. Our culture was lost and the African family structure was destroyed! To this day the African American community is feeling the effects of slavery. Even when slavery ended we faced segregation and racism that still exists to this very day. I'm 33 years old and my mother is 67. For a portion our her life she couldn't even drink from the same water fountain as whites did. So this is not something that took place hundreds of years ago. Racism today is just more overt and in the shadows but you know as well as I that it exists. Do you feel like your missing out on something by not being able to use the word? I don't understand why whites who claim they are not racist desire to use the word? As a black male I don't wish to be able to freely use racial slurs towards other races. Can you explain why you feel you should be allowed to say the word? I do appreciate you asking the question though, as an open dialogue is the best way to see a point of view you may not understand. I would advise you do some reading and research into what black have been through in the country and you might have an even better understanding.

This guy has way more substance than most of the so called rappers out there today

  • OUCH!

    I really dont understand how Atlantic Records let T.I go. Even if his album did not do crazy numbers it still went gold. He was the best selling rapper on that label period.

    We at YMCMB wish Tip well at Columbia Records but he'll be regretting his decision not to sign with ymcmb.
