SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on December 19, 2005 at 4:53 pm

Chamillionaire’s smooth Southern drawl and effortless flow make him a distinctive voice in hip hop. Unfortunately he has very little to say beyond cookie-cutter gangsta themes told over garden-variety mainstream production. Unlike the rest of his Houston contemporaries that broke out nationally this year (Slim Thugicon, Mike Jonesicon and Paul Wallicon), Chamillionaire’s album feels far less Southern and frequently employs formulaic r&b hooks. The brightest spots on The Sound of Revenge occur when he just lets hard-edged rhymes fly at a rapid pace, but those moments are too rare on this much-anticipated debut. If he can find some unique lyrical inspiration and make more exciting production decisions, he has great potential in the future.
