D-Grade Rap Star Possibly "Riding Dirty" With Newly Minted Baller-Status Michael Arrington, Other Nerds
Remember rapper Chamillionaire ("Chameleon" + "Millionaire"), who had that song about "Riding Dirty" that was less about unspeakable sex acts we'd probably rather not want to catch him in the middle of rather than the proposition of being pulled over by law enforcement officials with illicit contraband in his car? Well, guess where he is today.
If you answered "TechCrunch Disrupt, the (press) conference put on by (now former) TechCrunch owner Michael Arrington for entrepreneurs, budding entrepreneurs, and their sycophants" you clearly read the headline of this post. Apparently, showing up at tech conferences is something he does often, which might explain why his rap career is so robust these days. He's apparently at TechCrunch Disrupt to explain...why he's at TechCrunch Disrupt:
Chamillionaire is here because he wants people to understand how the tech world dramatically changes his world. Chamillionaire is here because "the biggest tech thing" rappers know about is Napster, NOT Spotify. "I can go to ten of my rap homies, and none of them will know Spotify. Spotify will dramatically change my industry."
Not as much as THE NEW KANYE RECORD WILL (GAMECHANGERS: THEY HAPPEN). For the record, just so we're clear:
Chamillionaire = TechCrunch Disrupt.
