Where Are They Now? 11 Singers and Rappers Who Didn’t Blow Up Like We Thought They Would…

Chingy Ching got a raw deal when he came out. Unfortunately, he tried to be the “It” St. Louis rapper after years of Nelly holding things down and dominating the charts. But he didn’t let him have all the shine. After Chingy signed with Ludacris and Disturbing tha Peace, he made chickenheads everywhere who loved to do the chickenhead happy when he dropped “Right Thurr.” With “One Call Away” coming in soon after (and a feature from Jason Weaver), and “Holidae In” with Snoop Dogg, it was safe to say that his debut album, Jackpot, was a platinum-selling success. He looked damn near unstoppable. But if hip-hop has taught us anything, it’s that everybody can fall off sometime. Aside from his second album, Powerballin’, Chingy’s CDs since his debut have been unsuccessful commercially, and he fell out with Ludacris and DTP (though they would reunite later) in the midst of it all. Oh, and let’s not forget that he found himself caught up in a scandal with a transgender model claiming they had messed around (even though she lied). He had a few more somewhat successful songs, but it was safe to say that the Chingy train was finally pulling in the station…Nice muscles though!
