Rap Fail: Chingy In Singapore

Butter Factory was graced with the appearance of rap star Chingy on Friday night.

There were gasps of surprise and wandering whispers of, “Who’s Chingy?” when the rapper took to the stage.

Known for his groovy club hits: “Right Thurr”, “Dem Jeans” and “Holidae In”, the rapper was accompanied by Rich Money and his personal deejay.

The set lasted for a mere 45 minutes with and the alcohol fuelled crowd seemed not too impressed and whispers of, “I only know ‘Right Thurr’,” was pretty much what was heard.

Some of the crowd who’s musical influences would include the likes of Backstreet Boys or Blue were ignorant of the rapper’s previous star status.

One girl was heard asking, “Who’s that?” before being told that the man with the mic was a rapper called Chingy, to which she exclaimed, “Oh my God! It’s Chingy!”

An educational trainer, Shervani complained, “I was disappointed. I was expecting more from him. Some of the crowd left midway through his set.”

The rapper who faded off into musical oblivion after his last album ‘Hate it or Love it’ in 2007 flopped, was unable for most parts to get the crowd energized and was not helped by his deejay who kept interrupting him mid track.

Other adjectives that were being thrown about during the short time that he was on stage included: dull, boring, disappointing.

A major factor in the poor atmosphere can be attributed to the lack of hype that surrounded the rapper’s shrouded appearance in the club.

He wasn’t missed when he went off and the crowd did not seem to keen to have him back on stage for an encore.

Despite the poor gig at Butter Factory, the rapper pulled of an impromptu one track set at Avalon at Large at the Sands Expo – the one track that everyone knew: ‘Right Thurr’. (Source)
