For fans of Houston rapper Chamillionaire, the wait for his anticipated new album Ultimate Victory will be a little less agonizing thanks to the release of a new DVD and mixtape, that will hold fans over until his September 18 release date.
The DVD will be released on July 18, precisely two months before Ultimate Victory and takes an in-depth look at a side of Chamillionaire fans may not have the opportunity to see anywhere else.
"With the DVD it's kinda just to let people connect with me a little more. Like nowadays a lot of people just say, 'Well, you know I feel like I know Chamillionaire, I like him.' They like what I stand for or whatever and I feel like the DVD kind of just helps that," Chamillionaire told AllHipHop.com. "So many people put out songs and stuff, but you can't really connect with the artist. People that want to put me in their homes, they can do that and they'll be able to just watch it and get to know me a little better."
Chamillionaire will also be releasing the freestyle heavy Mixtape Messiah Part 3 on July 18. Both the mixtape and DVD can be found online.
"It's gonna come out July 18 and I'm gonna release it everywhere online for free," Chamillionaire revealed. "It's not gonna be something where I go sell it and put it in stores or nothing. It's just to hold my fans down until September 18. We released Mixtape Messiah Part 2 before and it was a success and now this time they know they about to get a creative mixtape with freestyles from me on Mixtape Messiah Part 3."
Ultimate Victory, Chamillionaire's sophomore album will feature appearances by both old school and new school artists including Slick Rick, Devin The Dude, Lil Wayne and Krayzie Bone.
