Product Description

If success is the sweetest revenge then releasing one of the most anticipated albums of 2007 must be the Ultimate Revenge. Platinum superstar Chamillionaire is back with his highly anticipated sophomore LP Ultimate Victory! Chamillionaire's rise from Houston underground rap pioneer to award-winning, mainstream music luminary was again affirmed earlier this year when the prolific artist was nominated for two Grammy Awards, garnering nods in the Best Rap Song category and for Best Rap Performance By Duo or Group for the hit single Ridin', featuring Krayzie Bone, (which ended in the win for Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group). The prestigious nods came on the heels of his two trophy-takedown at the First Annual BET Hip-Hop Awards in mid-November, where Chamillionaire walked away with both the Rookie Of The Year Award and the coveted Alltell Wireless People's Champ (Viewers' Choice) Awards. The Houston rapper began his incredible run as the most honored hip-hop star of the past year by beating out proven superstars 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and T.I. for Best Rap Video for Ridin' at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. Chamillionaire's platinum-plus debut disc has become one of the most lauded albums in hip-hop history, with the single and video for Ridin' topping almost every chart and single-handedly transforming the digital landscape, as well. Incredibly, Chamillionaire became the biggest selling Ringtone artists in history, surpassing an amazing 4 million in ringtone sales, in addition to his groundbreaking Myspace site closing in on an astounding 6 million profile views.

Here's what Mixtape Messiah Chamillionaire needs you to know: He's no longer just a tough-talkin' dude from Texas with a kisser full of diamonds and an armload of music awards. He's also--and this is pretty radical for a rapper--an anti-materialist. So goes the theme of Ultimate Victory, on which his limber voice and way with a lyric serve him well. If you don't see a pattern emerging by "Won't Let You Down" and "Industry Groupie," on which Cham swipes at the motives and ethics endemic to certain lifestyles (and also, in the case of the latter track, expresses real disappointment--how could a groupie do him that way?), the skit that precedes "The Bill Collecta" with Krayzie Bone will get you closer: "They comin' to get what you got/And you tryin' to say you aint got it," he complains about a debtor--it's a familiar scenario, and one he's sick of. "I Think I Love You" gets right to the point: "Money don't bring you nothin' but trouble," he gripes. Less gripey but still great are some collaborations--"Pimp Mode" with homeboy Bun B and "Welcome to the South" with Pimp C ooze Houston charm. The best track, though, is the last one--"The Ultimate Victory" gets at what it's like to be Chamillionaire, a guy with a lot more running through his thoughts than the average cash-obsessed rapping millionaire. --Tammy La Gorce

Forget about 50 Cent and Kanye West, cause Chamillionaire (Hakeen Seriki) just made the best Hip Hop album of September. You probably ask why I would be praising the guy that made "Ridin" a few years ago but I really didn't see this coming at all. "Ultimate Victory" got what any good Hip Hop album should have. A concept of songs that feel like they are part of the same album and a sound that is both strong but also coherant for the overall project. Chamillionaire talks about what he knows and seen and while other rappers talk about street credabilty and bragadiccio punchlines Cham made an album with a few of socio political themes but mostly of good/bad things he's been through since he became a celebrity, All of this successfully without the use of explicit lyrics, but instead he's really funny on alot of songs even if the subject matter is deep. The production is really strong aswell (Jonathan Rotem, Happy Perez KaneBeatz, the Beat Bullies and Play-N-Skillz) even of many of them aren't exactly superproducers they made better beats then alot of producers with better reputation and like aformentioned the production mostly sounds like it's part of the same project with hard hittin beats, heavy bass and fast drums. There's plenty of stong number here so let's take a look at it.

On the sister songs "Morning News" and "Evening News" he act as a news reporter, have you seen the video where Cham is dressed up as a white middle age guy?. However, here he deals with the hypocracy of the society and how we get gossip news instead of what is really important.

I'm not going to go in depth about each song and how good it is - they are all ridiculous! This CD is set so far apart from your average rap CD that comes out nowadays. Amazing production, filthy lyrics, songs that are cohesive to a general theme of the album, incredible presentation - overall this is probably the best CD to come out this year. If you are a fan of music period get this album

Despite being a huge music fan and a regular buyer of CDs (a few every month, though that'll pick up in the upcoming weeks), I usually don't take the time to write reviews. This album, however, is put together so well that I simply feel compelled to do so.

I picked up Cham's "first" major-release, The Sound of Revenge shortly after it was released and immediately grew to admire his swagger and cleverness. The best thing was that despite the hot singles off that album ("Turn It Up" and "Ridin'"), it was a few other tracks, namely the explosive yet simple Boom-Clap, Boom-Boom-Clap beat of "In The Trunk," which I felt was the hottest track on the album. I've been fortunate enough to get both of his latest mixtapes off his website.

This release was probably my most anticipated of the year. And it certainly does not disappoint. From his first joint-single video of "Hip-Hop Police" and "Evening News," it was apparent that this would be a good effort from Cham. The beats are fresh, and unlike what one of the fellow reviewers wrote, I found nothing that he supposedly took off from other artists. Chamillionaire does have some political content, but I attribute that to his being a relevant artist who has a concern about the world around him. Sure, he has several songs regarding his riches, along with a song referring to groupies, but if you actually take the time to listen to his songs (you'd be doing yourself a favor with a true artist like Chamillionaire), it simply doesn't contain the demeaning stance that brings such a shadow on hip-hop.

I won't even bother comparing Cham to 50 Cent, but as far as Kanye West, I will say that Kanye brings creativity to his production, which Chamillionaire obviously does not possess.

I'll admit it that I didnt enjoy The Sound Of Revenge. Chamillionaire is good rapper but I just didnt feel that album. I heard Hip Hop Police(feat Slick Rick) and decided to pick this album up and Im impressed. Hip Hop Police is not the only song of substance on this album. The Morning New ,The Evening News and Ultimate Victory all have gems in them. Chamillionaire sounds energized on tracks like Wont Let You Down, Standing Ovation and Come Back To The Streets. Chamillionaire has some dope match ups in the form of The Bill Collecta(feat Krayzie Bone), Pimp Mode(feat Bun B), Welcome To The South(feat Pimp C) and Rocky Road(feat Devin The Dude). On Welcome To The South, Cham and Pimp C criticizes those that diss the south then try to emulate their style. Industry Groupie is creative track about a groupie that's been with every rapper in the game. Rock Star is pretty good(its better than Fly As The Sky) collabo with Lil Wayne even though Cham pretty much dominated that track. The Bill Collecta with Krayzie Bone is both of them explaining why you shouldnt gyp them when it comes to paper. I Think I Love is another creative track where Chamillionaire talks about money as if it was a chick. The only songs I didnt feel is The Ultimate Vacation and We Breakin Up. Bottom Line: Chamillionaire's Ultimate Victory is one of 2007's best releases as well as his best work. His rhymes were great on here, the production was superb and the guest appearances shined along with Chamillionaire. Chamillionaire proved without a shadow of a doubt that you can still make a great album without cursing. If you didnt cop this based off him not cursing then you dont know what you are missing. The best release from the south this year. Standout Tracks: THE MORNING NEWS, HIP HOP POLICE, STANDING OVATION, WONT LET YOU DOWN, INDUSTRY GROUPIE, PIMP MODE, COME BACK TO THE STREETS, THE EVENING NEWS, YOU MUST BE CRAZY and ULTIMATE VICTORY.
