Wack Rapper Series: Chingy

Now we all have lists of great rappers, top 5 dead or alive, top tens and g.o.a.t.s . There is always attention also paid to wack rappers. Let's start to highlight these dudes and find out if they truly are wack and why?

Let's start off with St. Louis resident Chingy, and let's just say he isn't going to be the only St. Louis rapper who would make my list. Now Ching-a-ling never considered himself the best although he did have a short lived feud with Nelly. He was a party starter to an extent, though in my mind that doesnt excuse an artist from having decent lyrics. Let's see Chingy's verse from "Holidae Inn"

Peeps call me up {*phone ring*} said it's a ho-tel party
Just bring the liquor there's already eight shawties
I'm on my way (way) let me stop by the store
Get a 12 pack of Corona, plus an ounce of 'dro, ya know?
Now I'm on highway 270 needin' Natural Bridge Road
I'm already blowed, hit third I'm a get blowed some mo'
Pulled up, stop parked, rims still spinning
Valet look like he in the game and must be winning
To room 490 I'm headed, on my way up
There's three girls on the elevator like "wassup"
I told em follow me they knew I had it cracking B
One said "ain't you that boy that be on BET?"
"Ya that's me, Ching-a-ling equipped wit much ding-a-ling"
Knock on the door I'm on the scene of things
Busted in, Henny bottle to the face!
Fuck it then, feel like my head a toxic waste
There's some pretty girls in herre, I heard em whispering
Talking bout "that's that dude that sing 'Right Thurr' he glistening"
I ain't come to talk (talk) I ain't come to sit (sit)
What I came for was to find out who I'm gon hit, aww shit

Wow, such depth. But let's look at a later song with him and Rick Ross:

Look, check
Hey I'm so flossy I can wear the Dental package
The Range Rover sweet, 'cause it got a lotta racket
Our (') lost faith, now I call it Chingy Magic
Look the other way nigga when you see me in traffic
Hello, 22's is cool
Feel like I graduated, throwin y'all still in school
Look, mellow they call me Young Smooth
'Cause my appearance alone will get your girl in a mood, shoot
I know they like the color on the Chrys'
'Cause I'm gettin it hell, put some colors in the ice
That's ballin, go 'head, gamble with your life
And I'ma {*gunshots*) turn your head to some dice
Hood up partner, you niggaz goin straight broke
Tryna keep up with my whips, I don't pay a damn note
No, no you fake hustlers are a joke
Huffin old ass fool should have came with a remote
What the fuck is Chingy magic? I mean don't get me wrong, One call away rocked but only because Jason Weaver did his thing on the hook. Chingy also is blessed with the most annoying rap voice ever,which sounds like a cross between a chain saw and a dirt bike.

You're not going to tell me that shit doesn't hurt ya ears. At least he turned it down some as he moved on and continued recording. However, as I listened to this, this song featuring Tyrese sounded exactly the same as One call away, but you be the judge as I welcome Chingy into the hall of shame.
