On his debut album, Chamillionaire showed how versatile of an artist he was, but on his sophomore album, he was very limited. Quickly, he lost his fan base because of this. For his third album, Cham has a different trick up his sleeve. However, Universal Records wants the same man who rode dirty. Because of this, Chamillionaire constantly clashes with Universal.
Chamillionaire often reaches out to his fans through Ustream.tv to vent his feelings. During his feud with Michael Jordan, he explained things on his channel. With each delay of his album, the announcement usually comes from Cham's Ustream channel. Fed up, Chamillionaire has decided to vent due to the delays of Venom. He said Universal Records asked him to do a song with the girl from "Gossip Girl" when he does not even watch the show.
Universal Records is focused on Chamillionaire making the next "Ridin'" and Cham said things don't work that way. He said the song came from his heart and he could not try to re-create magic. Instead, Chamillionaire wants to come from the heart with a new album. After a failed crossover attempt on his debut album, Cham has decided to stay away from the cheesy Ja Rule records. Not only is the label trying to make him go pop, but Cham said they also want to cut down the size of his album. Chamillionaire has seventeen tracks planned for the album, but the label wants to only have ten make the album.
Among the tracks they plan to cut from the album is the track Chamillionaire recorded with Pimp C, the focus of the album. He said the album would not work being so short, but the label is not listening. They named multiple R&B acts who have been successful with ten track albums. But, when Chamillionaire asked him to name one rapper who had success with such a short album, they could not name one. Upset with the way he is being treated, Chamillionaire is looking for the exit door from Universal Records. The label has limited him throughout his time being there.
