Default Mumbai! Who wants to meet the Chamillionaire?

Hey,

As some of you Rap fans already know, Chamillionaire is going to be in India. After his Grammy Award winning super hit - Ridin' Dirty - he's here to promote his new album Hip Hop Police, in stores now.

Cham will be playing live in Hyderabad on the 17th, Mumbai on the 19th and New Delhi on the 20th of october.

You can read more about the artist on the internet and also here.

Quote:
Hakeem Seriki (born November 28, 1979) better known by his stage name Chamillionaire (pronounced Ka-MIL-yin-air, IPA: [kəˈmɪljənεː(ɹ)], a portmanteau of "chameleon" and "millionaire") is an American rapper and the CEO of Chamillitary Entertainment. He stated that his aim is to prove that the South can produce quality lyricists. He is also a hook writer and usually sings and harmonizes with himself (using double-tracked vocals) on his own hooks. Chamillionaire is a founder and original member of The Color Changin' Click, which houses rappers such as his brother Rasaq, 50/50 Twin, Lew Hawk, Yung Ro, and Paul Wall. He was recently awarded a Grammy, for the best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for his #1 single with Krayzie Bone, titled Ridin'. He is a former artist on Michael 5000 Watts' Swishahouse stable.

A rumored collaboration between Chamillionaire and 50 Cent has also been officially confirmed. SOHH recently caught up with Chamillionaire during "MTV Video Music Awards" press forum and the Houston bred emcee revealed that him and the G-Unit honcho have worked on some material. "I bumped into 50 in NY a couple of weeks ago, and he hollered at me and said he wanted to do some stuff, next day Sha Money hit me up and put me on some records," explained Cham. "I really don't like to say nothing until it gets cleared, and everything goes through cause I don't like to say I'm a be on something and then get pulled off." "So yeah, I'm definitely been messing around with them," Cham continued. "They been showing love, and I've been messin' with his DJ, DJ Whoo Kid and Lil' Scrappy, he just shot a video, he's with G-Unit now and he put me in the video, so it's a good look," he added. Chamillionaire turned heads in the hip-hop industry after winning the VMA for Best Rap Video, beating out veterans such as T.I., Busta Rhymes, 50 Cent, and also then-new success Yung Joc. On September 6, 2006, the ringtone of his song "Ridin'" was the first to be certified triple platinum, making it the highest-selling master ringtone ever.
What is all this doing in the meet section you may ask?

I was wondering if any Team-BHPians would like to meet him in person. Maybe to shake hands, or for a photograph or an autograph.

Nope I am not kidding.

It will most probably be on Thursday - 18th of October, in the evening in South Mumbai.

I cannot confirm that I can arrange this 100% - however if I get a confirmed list of BHPians that are interested, I will swing this.
I repeat, after I have a confirmed list of BHPians, I will organise this meet for a few minutes. It may be possible that this may not go through.

This is a one-on-one and has nothing to do with his performance the next evening in Mumbai. Please do not start PMing me for passes, I cannot help you there

Also, before the Hyderabad and New Delhi BHPians glare at me, let me tell you, we have only one evening free in Mumbai. Sorry.

So let me know ASAP - Thanks

@lord is partial to mumbaikers. No private meeting in Delhi, it has something to do with the crime rate here,I guess; but then Lord you should be fair to all. lolz

Though never heard of this hip-hop artist ( I am still in Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Eminem- mode ), i would have surely come had it been in Hyderabad if not to meet Chammi but alteast to meet you and other fellow tbhpian's

yeah, yeah, get a sony friend, maybe he can do that for you, after you had spent a few lakhs buying the vaios & the bravias. LOL. This is where sam is special, he will do anything for team-BHPians.
