Hakeem Seriki was born 28 th November 1979 the first year that it was not so long ago. In addition daedal name of the father-Muslim he won and harsh upbringing. Future The Mixtape Messiah (also known as The Truth from Texas, Color Chagin Lizard and King Koopa) did not have any opportunity to listen to secular music at home by parents not the spirit of. In doing so, they lived very modestly, if not poor. For example, so far rapper on the spirit moves did not figure that he had to have every day. However, the impact of notorious street made his case, and Hakim fled to listen to NWA, Public Enemy and local heroes Geto Boys and UGK friends, among them the now famous jeweler dentist, rapper Paul Wall. In seventeen years, Chameleon and Paul became promoter of some tehasskih parties and thus became acquainted with Michael 5000 Watts, cult DJ of the area. He had his own channel on Houston radio The Box, and another 5000 Watts produced miksteypy that razletalis hand, as good hashish. First, the guys just wanted to help him in the promo releases and studio Swishahouse, and ended the meeting Freestyle at the upcoming regular miksteyp. The result came on a shower and de-dzheyu and listeners. Thus began a music career Chamillionaire.

Swishahouse, barony 5000 Watts and OG Ron C, quietly becoming a cult among fellow countrymen, gathered around a really talented and ambitious rapper. Many of the younger Hakim contributed to the energy and sex. But Watts does not hurry to share growing revenues. «In Swisha House had 13 participants, and we were the last who received money», - later said Chameleon. The first is not endured Slim Thug, and Chamillionaire and Paul Wall went out later. Even then, Paul was the organizational streak, allowing it to gather a group of adherents called «The Color Changin Click». They produced their miksteypy and very successfully. Now, at least not have to give the lion's share uncle. And there are other DJs from the radio The Box - Madd Hatta asked them to release a full album on his label Paid in Full Records. Album: "Get Ya Mind Correct" Dissident circulation of more than 100 000 copies and was nominated for «Best Indie Album of the year» according to the magazine The Source.

CCC had to go to concerts and outside their state, produced the second album. Several labels offer them a contract, but the guys did not want to change little things, waiting in the wings. Meanwhile, Chamillionaire managed to light up and Major, in the album hyustontsa Lil Flip, whose album «Underground Legend», issued by Sony, has received «platinum». And like everything went well, but again involved in the notorious «human factor» - childhood friends scold. The cause has been identified as «creative differences». So it is again, or money played a role, but Chameleon leaves the group and the label, quite a bit nedorabotav on a second release. They parted with swearing and skripom, the younger brother Hakim, also named rapper Rasaq even fractured Wall'u at all honest people. But now, the passage of time, the Beef finished - everyone has their business. And he and the other is now even argue that there is no bifa: «We just went different routes and will not communicate».
«And with the Swishahouse and Paid in Full was one problem - money is not allowed. And I decided to work alone. To be sure, that money will not disappear - to control everything himself ». Chamillionaire peremanil to his former co-owner Swisha - OG Ron C, which was so famous that masterfully done screwed-miksteypy and again ask miksteypy of the couple on the streets be in demand. Meshali only former friends - for example, «Paid in Full» released album «Controversy Sells» named Chamillionaire. By the way, so it should have been named first album for Universal, which has expressed interest in Hakim. But former podelniki broke all plans. Paul Wall is returned to Swisha House and now, after the withdrawal from Mike Jones, is the only star label.

As an underground star Chamillionaire did not complaining too Major labels, in his view, there are deceived and no benefits. But his manager did persuaded him fly to New York to the party Nelly, which would come and a representative of Universal, has long been going after Hameleonom. Rapper to the party flew, but missed. And woke the morning at the hotel, found a dozen calls on my mobile from this very «yuniverselovtsa». Soon a contract was signed. Support for label and its own credibility helped podtyanut to debut MAJOR-known people: Lil Flip, Scott Storch, Bun B, Scarface, Mannie Fresh (and once from King Koopa and Paul Wall did not have 20 000 to buy Mannie minus) Cool & Dre and Krayzie Bone, with the single, «Ridin», two weeks was the first in the American hit parade. In an interview on allhiphop.com question is not whether destroyed his treatment for broken by Storchu, Hakim modestly replied that he is worth a little cheaper than normal calls Scott. Rapper calls himself a perfectionist and album released only when he was fully confident that nothing either add or subtract. And the public is appreciated. Released in November 2005 on «The Sound Of Revenge» became the most successful debut Universal over the past 3 years and on the move received a «platinum». Telephones its managers have been torn from the calls with a proposal to write a joint track. Lucky Baby, Lil Wayne, Ciara, Young Buck, DJ Khaled. And it began to call for help newcomers Jibs and Natalie, but it is already accepted. Chamillionaire healed completely different life, but do not forget your family - helps mom and sister, pregnant at an early age, and his brother Rasaq, and is signed to his label Chamilitary. He accompanies his statements, which the brothers prefer to go by bus - afraid of planes.

For the rapper was very important not to lose respect for those people who supported him and raskupal samopalnye miksteypy in his native Houston. Therefore, three months after the exit «normal» «The Sound of Revenge», by Chamilitary Records has screwed & chopped version. «We can not subscribe to MAJOR and just spit on everything that help you do this». And rightly - «not forget their roots».
