Chamillionaire confident in "Venom"

Four years ago, Chamillionaire seemed poised to take over the rap game, but a few unpopular singles have him washed up. When he was still on top of the Billboard Hot 100, Universal Records wanted him to release another album. Because he was not inspired, Chamillionaire decided to wait. Looking back on the decision, Cham surely regrets it.

In 2007, he decided to go profanity-free and he released Ultimate Victory. The album scored a minor hit with "Hip Hop Police." But, for the most part, the album was a complete flop. Because his last album sold well, Chamillionaire had already ordered the platinum plaques to put the album in. The joke was on him because he has yet to even sell gold.

Over the years, Chamillionaire has gone from being a rising star in the game to being a joke. But, Cham has decided to use this as a form of inspiration. For nearly two years, he has been battling with Universal to release his third studio album, Venom. The album was originally supposed to be released in November 2008.

Chamillionaire said the label is still stopping him from releasing the album. Early in June 2010, the album has still yet to be released. However, this is not much of an issue for Cham because this gives him time to work on the rest of his album. He hopes this time off will lead to him recording some legendary material. Chamillionaire hopes to record a strong lead single to get his album off of the ground. He is confident this album can be both critically and commercially successful. Cham hopes this new album will lead to a string of successful albums.
