Blender magazine caught up with Chingy for a Q&A and asked him who the last person was he took a swing at. “I got back home one time and went to the mall,” the St. Louis rapper explained, “and this dude was hating on me in front of people, saying I can’t rap, that he should be the one with the deal. At first, I didn’t pay attention. As I got to my car, something just clicked in my head and next thing you knwo, he was getting his ass whooped.”
Chingy was on ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ on Friday night to perform
his new single ‘Balla Baby’ as well as ‘Right Thurr’. In between songs,
he talked with Carson about how he started out rapping, if he really has
a beef with Nelly, and he talked about the Geto Boys a bit, who were with
him on stage. Read on for a brief transcript.
MTV News spoke with Ludacris after Chingy abruptly bolted Disturbing Tha Peace after claiming he had monetary disputes with Chaka Zulu, a co-owner of DTP who was acting as Chingy’s manager. “This is the first time we hear about his accusations, in a tabloid or through different media outlets, so all respect is lost,” Ludacris revealed Thursday, sitting with Chaka Zulu in New York. “He keeps saying it’s cool. It’s not cool. … It’s completely over. Financially he still is signed to Disturbing Tha Peace, and we’ll do what we have to do, but we don’t want anybody representing the crew who’s gonna make false accusations like that. We have no respect for this individual, basically.” Chingy claims no beef with Luda, and said, “It’s a contract thing. I don’t want to get into that. Me and the management had our differences. Plus I’m trying to develop my business mind. Ain’t nobody going to do for me like I’mma do for me. Ain’t nobody gonna look out for me like I’mma look out for me. I had to step aside, start my own thing.” Read more.
