Chamillionaire Announces

Chamillionaire reveals his next project.

Chamillionaire is back, and with new music for his fans.

The Houston rapper took to his home page and announced his next project, the ELEVATE EP. 

Below is a statement he provided about his project, which will tide fans over until he releases his long-awaited Poison album.

Verb Raise or lift (something) up to a higher position. Raise to a more important or impressive level:

I will be releasing a new EP called ELEVATE on FEB 12th on The first 500 copies will be autographed and each autographed copy will be numbered. That means if you receive the 7th cd it will say 7/500 on it. There will ONLY be 500 autographed copies. I will only press up 1000 CDs total (Maybe I will make more later but if so I probably won't make them available until later after the next one comes out). This way would make the amount of volume I have to ship easier for me to control. The CDs will ship on Monday February 11th and will release on Feb 12th. Elevate will have real songs on it and will probably have about 7 songs.

Everyone who pre - orders a physical copy will be emailed a download link at 2pm (Central Time) on Feb 12th. This means you will be able to listen to it at the exact moment it releases, before you receive your package in the mail, before All Star Weekend, and before someone else gets it and leaks it. That's the best way I can ensure that the people who support get to hear it first.

The autographed copies will probably be sold out quick so I suggest you get one now if you prefer it be autographed. Sorry I will only be able to sign 500 a release. (Please don't have a family member email me asking me to do anything different. It happens every time but this is already a lot of cds for me to autograph.)

This will be one of multiple EP's that I will do leading up to the release of my POISON album. Each EP will be different from the last one and none of them will be a part of any continuing series. The packaging of each of these EP's will be different than the packaging I normally do with my mix tapes. I explained that depth in this mornings newsletter, so if you haven't read that email yet then you probably should go read it. If you aren't a part of my email list then you should enter your email address in the newsletter box on the right column on the home page ----->

The Eps will be in packaging that looks kinda like this....

Its easier for me to autograph these type of cases and better for the artwork in my opinion. So I figured I would switch it up and start releasing EP's like this.

I will update the store page with the track listing a little bit closer to the release......

If you ordered a shirt on the last pre-order you will receive your package soon. All of those will be out the way before this one even comes out.


Thank you for your support.

More emails to come this week.......Im focused.

Below is the artwork for the project (spotted at HHNM):

    This is gonna be sick. Copped one just in time and Cham is a legend hopefully this gets him more buzz to lead up to more EP's and when his album drops. Hold up.

    Nobody can question this dude's work ethic. Too bad he doesn't have the support of a major so he could get albums out faster.

    Chamillionaire is one of the realest out, you can tell in advance that the EP will be well worth the money. While I know he has an ill mother and a little son to take care of, I still hope that POSION coming as soon as possible too. Judging by his work ethics we might see a release date soon enough, the question if he wants to build a hype for mainstream audience. From my opinion, that's unnecessary, he has a loyal and strong fan base who'd buy it without hesitation. Last but not least, that cover looks awful! Ammunition had a great one, hire the same person who did it and let's replace that one ASAP.
