This may be looking up for the state of hip hop, even if it happened almost a year ago. Back in Dec of 2008, Chingy, the awful excuse for a rapper that brought you such classics as Right Thurr (below), was dropped from his label. Why? Well he had a little tiff with his partner, Ludacris.
It may sound ridiculous, but I have to say I’m kind of happy about this developed. If you ignore the obvious schadenfreude in a post like this, I think the overall sentiment is that removing rappers like this from view is a step in the right direction. It cleans up the landscape a little, and I have to say I’m happy not to hear how Chingy thinks you look in ‘dem jeans.
Chingy is alleging that Luda and the label cheated him out of cash. I don’t know for sure what happened, but I’d say someone who’s been in the game as long as Ludacris probably isn’t too worried about jacking some meagre album sales.
Check out his video below, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
