Hailed around the world for his major label platinum-plus debut smash album, "The Sound of Revenge," the disc became one of the most influential hip-hop records in 2006, with the versatile Chamillionaire emerging as a mainstream multi-platform entrepreneur. The single and video for "Ridin' featuring Krayzie Bone" became the most requested hip-hop anthem, soaring to the top of the urban, hip-hop and mainstream radio charts, almost single-handedly transforming the digital landscape. Chamillionaire was crowned the biggest selling Ringtone artist ever, with over 4 million ringtone sales, and was certified by the RIAA as the first multi-platinum Mastertone artist in history.
His Myspace site has exceeded 9 million profile views, earning him over 4 million in digital sales, outselling established stars such as T.I. In keeping with the outpouring of recognition, the charismatic performer beat out proven superstars 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and others for "Best Rap Video of the Year" honors for the groundbreaking "Ridin'" video, featuring Krayzie Bone, at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. In addition, the Houston rapper won "Rookie of the Year" and the prestigious "Alltell Wireless People's Champ Award" (viewer's choice) at the first ever BET Hip Hop Awards, as well as a nod at the American Music Awards for Favorite New Breakthrough Artist. In February 2007, Chamillionaire received his first Grammy Award win in the Best R&B Performance By Duo Or Group category for "Ridin'."
