Chamillionaire Reveals Wheel Inspiration
What spurred the Ridin rapper to get rich " bling and bottles of Cristal or something else?
Chamillionaire has revealed he became a rapper to get himself a posh set of car wheels and ditch his porridge oats once and for all.
Talking to MTV News, the Ridin dude at No 2 in the singles chart, said, "I remember I used to dream of having my first set of 20 inch rims."
"I was like I am going to get these 20-inch rims, so I used to work hard just to get those rims and then when I finally got the money I didnt even want the 20-inch rims."
He added, "To me the whole aim is to live good, I dont want to have to eat cereal for dinner like I used to have to."
He also explained the meaning behind his unusual name: "Chammillionaire means rich in style," he said.
"If you break it down, its Cham, ill, on, aire - he can just spit and hes sick - no beat or nothing - so I definitely added meaning to it because I used to be Chameleon and then I added the millionaire part."
