Chamillionaire has long been a rapper who was always capable of more. His underground following has always stood behind him, but label issues and conflicts with the executives have prevented him from achieving more mainstream success after “Ridin’ Dirty.” Consequently, his third LP, Venom, has suffered indefinite delays and has yet to see the light of day. We haven’t heard much of him since his first two singles tanked and “When Ya On” is his latest attempt.
The song travels a different path with a West Coast feature, in lieu of the expected Texas guest spot. Nipsey Hussle fills in perfectly, as he too is searching for a resurrection after helplessly watching his buzz ride into the ground from the sidelines. Both rappers come correct on this track, and if the big bosses can shell out the dough to market it properly, it could be the joint that sparks the resurgence for Cham and a solid jumpstart for Neighborhood Nip.
