In 2003, Chingy cashed in with his now classic, triple-platinum album Jackpot. He struck certified platinum again in ‘04’ with PowerBallin’, which proved to the world that Chingy was no one-hit wonder. Now it’s 2006. And Ching-a-Ling is back with his third and most exciting album, Hoodstar. This time, it’s personal.

“I’m from the ghetto and I wanted to show my appreciation for where I come from,” he says. “Even if you’ve had success, you don’t ever forget where you come from.”

Hoodstar is one album you won’t soon forget, either. Part auto-biographical, part club-bangin’, it chronicles the life of a star from the hood—the highs, the lows, and all the girls, cars, clothes, and everything in between. The record is also a great big shout out to Chingy’s hometown—Walnut Park in North Side St. Louis.
To make musical magic, Chingy assembled an all-hoodstar team of producers, including Jermaine Dupri, Poli Paul, Timbaland, The Trak Starz, Mannie Fresh, Mr. Collipark and Kwame. Guest artists include Three 6 Mafia, Tyrese, Young Spiffy and Fatman Scoop.

In fact, it’s this spirit of positivity and his desire to give back to the community that caused Chingy to launch the Chingy for Change Foundation with his mother. The foundation gives college scholarships to disadvantaged youth, feeds the homeless, and sponsors toy drives. “It’s all about helping folks with their dreams and enabling them to do things they normally wouldn’t have the chance to do,” Chingy says.
