// REVIEWS //
“Winning, spiky, Dance-Pop” — Wall Street Journal ‘Globalization With an ’80s Beat’
“Frontwoman Annie Ko possesses a girlish, fairytale whisper that lends itself to CHVRCHES comparisons. But while the Scottish band floats like an electronic butterfly, Love X Stereo stings like a Rock ‘N’ Roll bee.” — MTV Iggy ‘Love X Stereo = Delicious Electro Rock From Seoul’
“They may draw from the sound of Alt and Punk Rock from the 90’s, but with a modernized Electronic Production and lead singer Annie’s powerful, yet girly voice, Love X Stereo has a sound that’s all their own.” — SXSW South By Southwest ‘Four On The Floor: Bands With Seoul (Part One)’

Chingy

Download Independent Hip Hop MusicDownload SRL Networks Presents Chingy... coming soon to the SRL Record Store.

Back at home in St. Louis, there is a calm in speaking to Chingy. You have to remind yourself that you're talking to the artist who pushed out hits like "Right Thur" and "Pulling Me Back." On the brink of his new album, "Chinglology," I had the chance to catch up with him. So what's changed since we last saw Chingy.

There is a sense of self-awareness and accountability. A corner has most definitely been turned and he is looking to correct past behavior. "I want to become more of a leader," he says in looking back at lessons learned over the years. He uses words like "Positive" and "Great" in describing where he wants to go not just with this album but in life moving forward. A spiritual awakening of sorts is present in his energy and reflective in the album, specifically with the track "King Judah" which pays homage to the origins of the African man.

Yes, it's deep. However don't sleep on Chingy's ability to put together hits, especially those to keep the ladies entertained. This will all be done tastefuly as he's taken the route of not disrespecting women, or beefing with other artists. Sounds like Chingy could be that breath of fresh air we've all been waiting for. On the current state of hip-hop, he believes there needs to be more positivity. "These kids don't know," says Chingy referring to the drugs and violence, which seem to be a theme in the ever changing rap game. That being said, he does like the work of artists like Drake, Wale, and Wiz Khalifa.

Chingy was recently featured on VH1's reality show, "Couples Therapy." The show is built on the idea of couples trying to fix a relationship. He says that he learned a lot during that process, and that it was real and not an act for the cameras. It doesn't stop there... From 2013 to Now he's been working on a new reality show called "Business with The Baileys" a collaboration with his mom & sister, revamped his record label "FullDekk" & released the mixtape "FullDekk Fulloisphy" that features STL Artist, he's been to Australia not once but twice co-headlining with Fabolous & Omarion then again for a solo run and has released two singles on iTunes "Falling & "Damn Girl" while still touring all around the US. Chingy is a busy man and has no problem managing all these ventures. The way he sees it, why not succeed at all levels so long as the people and experience involved are all positive.

To the critics and haters, Chingy is not listening. If you aren't breaking bread at his table, you're irrelevant. At the end of the day, he wants people to understand that he's just a regular, down to earth guy who enjoys history and who likes to bowl when he's not in the studio. This new found maturity could be exactly what gets Chingy back to the top... and honestly, hip-hop can use a few more Chingys.

Early Career:

Chingy grew up in the Walnut Park section of St. Louis, a neighborhood he has referred to as the "Bad Blocks."[2][3] The middle child with two older brothers and two younger sisters, Chingy became a music fan at an early age.

Chingy began writing lyrics at age 9 and was recording raps at age 10. He was originally known as H Thugz and was in the St. Louis, Missouri group Without Warning on 49 Productions with M.G.D. & Mysphit. They recorded "What's Poppin Off" together, which became a local hit. H Thugz and Augustin also recorded a music video for the song. H Thugz later chose the alias Chingy, a slang term for money.[3][4]


Ludacris and his manager, Chaka Zulu, were quick to sign Chingy to their fledgling Disturbing tha Peace label. The Party Rap track "Right Thurr" gained popularity, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.

2003: Jackpot

Chingy's debut album Jackpot was released on July 15, 2003 on Disturbing tha Peace. Unable to secure a distribution deal through Def Jam, Ludacris negotiated a deal to distribute the album through Capitol Records. Guest appearances included Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Murphy Lee, I-20, Raindrop, Tity Boi of Playaz Circle, Trina, and Jermaine Dupri. Fueled by "Right Thurr", Jackpot produced the hit "One Call Away" featuring J-Weav and "Holidae In" featuring Snoop Dogg and Ludacris. The album was produced by St. Louis production crew The Trak Starz. The album was received well by critics. Within a year of the release of Jackpot, It was certified Platinum by the RIAA.

2004-2005: Powerballin'

Chingy released his second album, Powerballin', on November 16, 2004 through Slot-A-Lot Records and Capitol Records. The album peaked at #10 on the charts and featured the hit single "Balla Baby."

Powerballin' sold over one million copies and received a Platinum certification. He also was on one of the George Lopez episodes as himself.

2006: Hood Star

Hoodstar is Chingy's third album, released on September 19, 2006. The album featured Mr. Collipark, longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri, Timbaland, and Mannie Fresh. His summer single, "Pullin Me Back (featuring actor-R&B singer Tyrese)," would find him back on top on the Hot Rap Tracks chart and help Hoodstar debut at number eight on the album charts, but the follow-up single "Dem Jeans", featuring Jermaine Dupri, fared worse although the album did go gold. Other singles from Hoodstar were "Brand New Kicks" and "Hands Up".

The album sold 77,000 copies in its first week.[5]

2007-2008: Hate It or Love It

Hate It or Love It is Chingy's fourth studio album. The album featured production from Scott Storch, Timbaland, and Cool and Dre. The lead single is "Fly Like Me," featuring Amerie. The album was released on December 18, 2007 and featured appearances by Ludacris, Bobby Valentino, Steph Jones, Trey Songz, Rick Ross, and Anthony Hamilton. The album debuted at #84 on the Billboard 200, selling 30,000 copies, making it Chingy's first album not to crack the Top 10. Hate It or Love It did not get released in the UK, this was Chingy's first album to not be released in the United Kingdom.


2013: Chances Make Champions Mixtape

Chingy's Winter Release of "Chances Make Champions" includes Hot tracks and New songs.. It's really a album. I'm Hurr, and You and Me, Aint Bout Nothing just to name a few.

Summer set to release of EP " Chingology The 9 year Theory" will set a new wave in positive music to up lift our youth. He feel like this new spiritual direction for him will take his listeners on a new journey. One filled with better things to repeat to our youth. Still catering to his female fan base the single "falling" speaks to them. While track King Judah wakes up the wicked. He threw in "That's What's Up" as a bonus track.

Amycanbe hails from Italy. Originally comprised of Marco and Mattia, they formed in 2002 but actually started as a four-piece band in 2005, after Francesca and Paolo joined.

After their first live performances in clubs, theatres and local bars, Amycanbe recorded a self-produced demo (Yellow Suit - EP) with 5 songs which attracted the attention of critics and attained widespread success. Blow Up Magazine placed Amycanbe in the playlist of the Best Debutant Italian Indie Band of 2005. The same year, Amycanbe opened for Skin, Sophia, The Devastations and Yuppie Flu, and played the Roma Rock Festival.

Their debut album "Being A Grown-Up Sure Is Complicated" was released in October, 2007. It was produced by Mario Thaler, to critical acclaim. This coincided with their first UK tour that saw the band playing in Leeds, Bristol, Oxford and Sheffield, as well as their album launch at 12 Bar in London, radio sessions at the BBC and a 2nd UK tour that saw the band having some highlights in glorious music venues such as The Borderline and Scala in London, Komedia in Brighton, The Croft in Bristol and The Gander in Bournemouth.

Back in Italy... the brilliant international festival called "Assalti Al Cuore" in Rimini wanted Amycanbe for a gig that would be marked as one of the greatest in the band's history. It marked the beginning of a new musical direction for the band and the start of their new project.

After one year of intense and successful gigs around Italy, the EP called "The World Is Round" was finally released on the 25th of May, 2011. Preceded by a new single and video called "Everywhere", it received great feedback, featuring in important blogs and magazines such as ListenBeforeYouBuy, The London Music Blog and Kismet Magazine with 7.1 Million readers worldwide. The video played on MTV New Generation, VIVA and many other popular music channels.

The long awaited album "Mountain Whales" was finally released late October, 2011.
