Chamillionaire and Paul Wall
Friends since childhood, Paul and Chamillionaire broke into the music industry by doing promotions for various southern hip-hop entities such as Cash Money Records
. Eventually, they got jobs doing promotions for Swishahouse
. While there, they recorded a demo for Swishahouse
that gained a lot of attention, and soon people wanted to know who made it. Paul and Chamillionaire kept asking Swishahouse CEO Michael 5000 Watts
to let them get a couple of verses on some mixtapes. However, they were constantly put to the side for other artists, and when they did get a chance to perform, they weren't getting paid well. Eventually, Paul and Chamillionaire decided to break out on their own and left Swishahouse.
The pair signed with Paid in Full Entertainment, a record label owned by the Madd Hatta, and released Get Ya Mind Correct in 2002. It was an instant hit in Houston, selling over 150,000 copies independently and getting nominated by the Source as one of the finalists for the indie album of the year in 2002.
However, disputes over money and artistic direction led to friction between Paul and Cham. They were set to release their second album, Controversy Sells, but the lingering issues led the group to split before the album saw the light of day. Controversy Sells did eventually get released in 2004. Paul decided to return to Swishahouse, while Cham started his own label, Chamillitary Entertainment. His younger brother Rasaq, Yung Ro, 50/50 Twin, and OG Ron C are signed to the label.
Paul and Cham's relationship was further strained by Paul's friendship with Mike Jones. Cham claims that Jones was saying foul things behind his back while being cool with him in person. After a short lived feud with Jones, and a "disagreement" with Paul Wall, Chamillionaire has since made peace with both artists. Paul Wall and Cham have performed together since, and collabed soon after on Paul Wall's song, Diamonds Exposed, with Lil Keke.
