Chamillionaire, real name Hakeem Seriki, is a rapper, record producer, entrepreneur and actor from the United States. Seriki is widely known as the original member of a rap duo The Color Changin’ Click. He gained prominence in the early 2000s, following the release of Chamillionaire and Paul Wall collaboration album Get Ya Mind Correct. Three years later he landed a deal with Universal records and released his first major label album, The Sound of Revenge. It featured such chart topping hits as “Ridin” (ft. Krayzie Bone) and “Turn It Up” (ft. Lil’ Flip). Hakeem is also a founder and chief executive officer of Chamillionaire Entertainment, an independent record label company. As for 2013, Chamillionaire net worth is estimated at $15 million.
Seriki was born in Washington D.C., to the Muslim father and Christian mother. Both of his parents were deeply religious people and rap, as well as other genres of secular music, was forbidden in their household. Although today Chamillionaire net worth is counted in millions, as a kid he was extremely poor and lived in one of the most dangerous districts of Houston, Acres Homes.

It was the dark streets of this neighborhood that introduced Hakeem to hip-hop music. As a teenager, he used to spend days listening to Public Enemy, The Geto Boys, UGK and 8 Ball & MJK. These artists had a great influence on his current rap style.
Hakeem’s stage name is a portmanteau of the words “millionaire” and “chameleon”. He started his professional career performing with a childhood friend, Paul Wall. For those who have never heard of this man, Paul is a successful rapper, currently signed to Swishahouse Records. Although the two friends started as equals, Chamillionaire net worth currently exceeds Wall’s fortune by $2.5 million. The duo released their debut album in 2002, after befriending Michael Watts, the founder and CEO of Swishahouse. Although Get Ya Mind Correct did not catch the mainstream audience, it was noticed in Houston underground hip-hop scene and eventually sold 150 thousand copies.
Chamillionaire’s solo career took off in mid 2000s, when the rapper released his album the Sound of Revenge. The record hit Billboard 200 at No.10 and sold over 130 copies during the week after it was released. Eventually this album received Platinum certification from the Recording Industries Association of America and added a solid sum to Chamillionaire net worth. A video for the single “Ridin”, the greatest hit in the album, garnered Hakeem MTV Music Video Award in 2006. Chamillionaire’s next studio work, The Ultimate Victory, was finished by the end of the following year. Although it was not received as enthusiastically as The Sound of Revenge, the album enjoyed a modest commercial success and eventually sold over 500 thousand units.
