ALBUM COMES OUT SEPTEMBER 18TH!!!
Honestly, I wasn't a big fan of Chamillionaire when he put out his last album 'The Sound Of Revenge'. I though he was just another rapper from Houston talking about the same stuff as Paul Wall, Mike Jones, Slim Thug, etc. So I wasn't expecting much to come with his sophomore album 'Ultimate Victory'. He dropped what was suppose to be his first single 'Not A Criminal feat. Kelis' that's not even on the album. I thought the song was okay, but not good enough for me to change my mind about him. When he eventually dropped official first single 'Hip Hop Police feat. Slick Rick', I was really surprised. It is very catchy song and it has a good meaning behind it. Slick Rick made the song even better, just by having and old school rapper on the track. Here's the video:
After he dropped his second single 'The Evening News', I really started liking Chamillionaire. What got to me was him talking about politics and things that the media look over. Here's the video:
Then finally when the album leaked on the internet, I was on it pretty fast. And to be honest, all the songs are rated 10 no joke. His lyrics have changed dramatically and the fact that he uses NO curse words in his WHOLE album is just amazing. He did a good job choosing the beats and just murdered them. If I was to pick 5 other songs on the album, it would be: Industry Groupie, The Bill Collecta, Won't Let You Down, The Ultimate Vacation and The Morning News. That was really hard to pick those 5 songs...that's how good the album is.
