    While it doesn't sound like he's giving up, It's still a shame that such a great artist is having so many headaches about the industry lately. Ultimate Victory was such a slept on album. Shame.

  • Shake

    link should work now. and im off to sleep.

  • ocurtain

    Dang. I really enjoyed his mixtapes. It's sad to see him go this route.

  • kuci06

    damn, people. read the post again.
    He WONT retire. The message says, he is tired with the labels, and that they always fuck him up. (maybe that means he gonna take the independent route, like slim thugga, and the others?)

    Then... no more mixtape messiah's. So? He can start another series, or whatever.

    I think he just wants to stay *himself*, and not just another rapper controlled by the labels

    How ironic. I was literally thinking, "where's cham" like hours before this post. It sounds as if he's tired of the industry which in all actuality, BS. Much respect for keepin it real and doin him. It seems to me emcees are finally seeing that rap = money was the beginning of the end in artistry. its deeper than rap, (no c.o.) death to monopolization;

  • Tre

    1. no more Mixtape Messiah (after part 7)
    2. and nobody would get to listen to Venom
    that's it, he is NOT retiring

  • Blindsyde

  • Acid_Sav

    Fuck i was lookin forward to Venom, hope dude still puts out some new shit soon

  • http://jaydonscave.blogspot.com Jaydon the Don

    I'm happy about this. The last tape i felt was Mixtape Messiah 3. Quality has been much lower since then.

    I'm also happy he isn't retiring tho. He can be dope when he isn't preaching.

  • http://urbanfrugalchic.com Cynthia

    He kind of fell off..a long time ago!

  • Blindsyde

    Even if he did fall off, he's still always going to be leaps and bounds better than Lil Wayne when it comes to everything. Wayne can't touch dude lyrically or flow wise.

  • stik to my gunz

    man it hurts me to see Cham in some pain like this. I wish he was happy with what he does, but you cant keep pushin when nothing there for you. CHAM DONT QUIT DOIN CHAM..THAT MIXTAPE SHIT IS, WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE your SHIT! me and my boy where talkin the other day about the Blue Light kmart special sand homer pimpson tapes..damn it will be a shame if you cant find your happy place again and give us some music to love

  • 3rd coast raised dnt mean im texas made

    mann see these idiots who say he preaches and they dont care must not like good music... cham is one of the best rappers in the game a creative person and other artist see him that way to thats why he gets alot of features.. homer pimpson, starvin marvin, bobby booshay, if you aint from the south then you dont know about these cd's it makes lil weazels cd look like trash so shut the fuck up cham dont live life for his fans.. he puts what he likes out and dont care what you say hes like eminem do you think he is ever like if i talk shit about my mom would they feel it?? na this dude is real.. hope he dosent retire though.. cynthia can kick a log jack and lick a ball sack.. lmao

  • http://www.pwelbs.com Pwelbs

    I'm a huge Cham fan....but come on quit being a little bitch. If your not gonna make music anymore just shut up so we can move on...I don't want to hear you whine and complain how you can't be creative anymore.

    After hearing the full 30 minute audio last night he pretty much said he's finished, just didn't use the word "retiring" cuz he can eventually jump back in the game. No Venom, no more Mixtape Messiah's, no more mixtapes, and no more album's is what he said. I hope he comes to his senses. He needs to come back in the game and set an example of how to make music for yourself and not what the fans are feeling like this trend of Soulja Boy music, Stanky Leg, Swag Surfing, and the rest of that wack bullshit. If he comes back with an album, it should be Sound Of Revenge 2.

  • Myth_Seeker

    why are fans so ungrateful? can't you respect the man's wishes? especially if you respect his music?

    obviously this doesn't apply to the blind hate in here...

  • best-of-both-offices

    I've just received word that chamillionaire will just be releasing singles and EPs digitally from now on.

    6-12-09 this will be confirmed.

  • yeahyeah

    man, that's lame. chamillionaire is one of the best in the game and his flow is out there. but as long he is still releasing singles digitally, im happy.

  • http://www.pwelbs.com Pwelbs

    Well if best-of-both-offices is correct

    that changes everything.

  • oooooooo

    its obviously that hes going to change his stage name and style.

    its obvious. i guarantee that and he'll probably do what best of both offices said too.

  • Lime

    Good Move ... Chamillionaire fell off after he stopped cursing. Mixtape Mesiah 1 and Sound of Revenge was his hardest shit.

  • Jones

    whatd bobo say?

  • Folabi

    Fuck Rappers! Im gonna listen to some MCs

  • Blindsyde

    Lime, you're an idiot. Cham RARELY cussed in his old shit. He only cussed on SoR cuz the label made him.

    Go back and listen to his older shit, dude BARELY says any cuss words and shit. Ignorant ass bitch.

  • j

    cham’s smart he knew he was gonna flop. he knows dat people ain’t feelin him like that. sure he has a core audience of 50K-100K but that’s not good enough to be great ,but good enough to be independent. he gave it his last best shot with this chamillionaire shit when he dropped “creepin on the low.” when he saw that shit get little to no response after he dropped 3 mixtapes back to back he said it’s a wrap for this shit. “creepin” is a good as it gets for chamillionaire. plus his mixtapes were wack. all he did was rhyme over other niggaz beats and copy their hooks. niggaz got mixtapes out now with all original shit. bottom line , cham's wack, always was. he just proof dat if you do somethin long enough someone will like it.

  • Mezzy

    Cham is great, and I guess we should all respect his wishes. But I was lookin forward to Venom . And the rest of the Mixtape Messiahs, even though the last few weren't as good as the older ones. I thought MM3 was great. Oh Well. At least he said he wouldn't retire.

  • Mezzy

    @ J
    I guess your entitled to your own opinions, But Seriously. Cham isn't wack, and his mixtapes are great. He can use other beats if he wants, thats why they're fucking mixtapes and not albums. And he didn't use other peoples beats on all.
    I swear people have no taste these days.

  • T.J. connor

    @ J wow ur an idiot... Mezzy is right thats why they are mixtapes instead of albums

  • quickV

    anybody that thinks cham is whack doesnt know rap, go bang your lil wayne.
    ultimate victory was mad slept on, should have won him a 2nd grammy.

  • p.k.

    respect to cham most rappers wont talk too the fans like tht one of the best and i agree wit u quickv

    I only have to say : ''Chamillitary Mayne....'' ...

  • Final Word

    To everyone sayin Cham is wack and just needs to disappear n shit, you're a dumbass...To everyone sayin Cham is the Greatest of all time and his shit is still complete fire, you're a dumbass...Everyone that honestly thought mm5 and 6 were FIRE needs to look into sum of Cham's older shit...they were average mixtapes with cham rappin about money, swag, and how he is a different kind of artist in the industry...when in fact he was turning exactly into the artist he was rapping against...since Ultimate Victory, Chamillionaire has just turned into a maintstream fans underground rapper...When in fact he wasent really mainstream or undergound, just stuck somewhere in the middle and I think he finally realized it and thats why he's doin this...to gather himself and come back with a totally new sound...he's def no retiring, that would be pointless...and just cause he says hes not realeasin Venom doesent mean he wont...Even if he realeases it under a different name the fans will never know the difference (expect for the leaked songs obviously)...I'm glad Cham is doin this cause I've been a fan for years and this decline in the quality of his music has been killing me...I hope he comes back with a fresh sound and kills it like I know he can

    King Koopa has got to get his fire back! I'm not sure why he has lost his inspiration but I remember on his mixtape messiah series when he would talk about 'I'm not going to stop until mixtape massiah part 24" or something like that. Why doesn't he want to rap his ass off anymore? He is a rhyme animal!
    Here's a concept... if Koopa is sick of rappin over other artists beats (beats that are commonly known) then why not start rappin over some other less-known producer beats & he could help put them on. There's tons of talented producers out there looking for a Chamillionaire to spit hot fire so why not put some of these people on? (assuming sample clearances etc are in order).

    What's up with locking Venom away? Fans have been waiting a year to hear that album (with a couple of delays). Is he not happy with his work? At least give fans a reason why it's not being released. (label woes, industry bullshit etc). Ok, so maybe he wants to keep the reasons private, & we can all respect that, but giving up on the mixtape messiah series & not releasing Venom is bad for business.
    I'm almost positive that he's still touring & doing shows. Maybe he's just sick of rap & wants to get into different things aside from music.
