Chamillionaire Confirms He’ll Spit “Venom” This DecemberPosted by Nathan S. on 10/05/09 | Filed under Features, Chamillionaire, News
Few artists have embraced the monster that is the internet and its abundance of social networking tools quite as comprehensively as Grammy-winning rap artist, Chamillionaire; using it to engage with fans for everything from Twitter takeovers to live broadcasts from his own highly trafficked site, Chamillionaire.com. Last week saw him go out to his legions of fans visiting the site daily and asking for their input in renaming his upcoming Chamillitary/Universal Republic third album release, which had originally been titled “Venom”; a name Chamillionaire felt he should change as the growth and direction of the album’s intended tracks, to him, no longer fit the moniker. Thousands submitted title suggestions and after narrowing it down, Chamillionaire put his top ten picks up for a vote on his site. To his surprise, his original album title “Venom” won by an overwhelming margin and, a man of his word, the newly-entitled, highly anticipated “Venom” is set to hit stores nationwide December 8, 2009.
“I wanna show all of my haters love. This song’s for you…,” Chamillionaire sings melodically on the intro to Venom’s lead single, “Good Morning”. Produced by DJ Frank E, with a track inspired by Tom Petty’s 1989 smash, “Free Fallin,“ this ode to killing your naysayers with kindness is getting some serious play across the country.
As far as other possible singles or artist features on “Venom” go, Chamillionaire is keeping that information pretty close to the vest, saying cryptically on his site’s blog, ”Venom stands for ‘visually entertaining negatives of money’. I plan to shoot visuals to accompany the leakage of multiple records. I won’t be talking too much about features and producers. Well, at least I will try not to. The visuals should do the talking.”
