Chingy Chingy A former member of the Disturbing Tha Peace collective with Ludacris, Chingy came into the spotlight on his own with his single and with his friend Jizzy B "Right Thurr" (which has become a popularly used phrase world wide, despite being grammatically incorrect and coined by Nelly previously) from his album, Jackpot. After the success of "Right Thurr", "Holidae Inn", featuring Snoop Dogg and Ludacris, climbed the charts, followed by "One Call Away" featuring J-Weav.
In 2004, he released a new album entitled Powerballin', featuring the single "Balla Baby". He was also featured in the hit song "I Like That" by Houston. He is currently beefing with Nelly. Nelly questions Chingy "Right Thurr" in a song in his Sweat album.
Chingy frequently mentions St. Louis in his music and sees himself as representing his hometown. His play on words like "there , and "here" is actually a common accent in St. Louis's black community.
