Powerballin'

Posted on

Chingy has always been in touch with his inner thug, but on his second album Powerballin’, he lifts up off the streets and makes like a purse-proud hip-hop giant operating from a penthouse. The follow-up to 2003’s triple-platinum Jackpot finds the St. Louis rapper collaborating with Janet Jackson, R. Kelly, and the Get It Boyz in creating the kind of slick, articulate boogie rap that may get Nelly to wondering if the Lou is big enough for the both of them.
