Fact: Ridin' hitmaker Chamillionaire has reinvented himself as a successful tech entrepreneur. The rapper has been hired by venture capitalist Mark Suster of Upfront Ventures to develop ideas at the company's Los Angeles headquarters. Chamillionaire will be the firm's "entrepreneur in residence". Suster previously wrote an article titled 'What Tech Entrepreneurs Could Learn from Chamillionaire' after meeting the rap star at a convention.
Quote: "I'm cool, it ain't nothing (sic). People were like, 'Why didn't you run?' I ain't got nothing to hide. I actually moved into another house which I paid like one fourth (of the cost of the other house). It's a much better business situation." Rapper Chamillionaire insists good business sense inspired him to buy a new, less expensive home after his $2 million (£1.3 million) mansion in Houston, Texas was foreclosed by the bank.
Quote: "I've never taken a drug in my life. I don't curse. And I've never been drunk." Rapper Chamillionaire leads a clean life.
