Rapper Chamillionaire has not ruled out a return to rap and has shared that he never actually announced that he retired from the game, despite public perception.
During an interview with HHDX, he shared that he is an introvert and explained vaguely his reasons for walking away from the mainstream.
"There was a lot of stuff in the music industry that didn't really align with me, but I don't consider myself gone from the music industry. People always tell me I'm retired. I never said I'm retired. I still feel like I'm gonna put music out whenever I feel like it, on my own terms, when I have something to say," he said.
"We're in a different time now. The game is not to make a dope song, the game is to get as much attention as possible. You do get people that cut through that don't do all that nonsense like Kendrick and J. Cole, but for the most part, the music industry to me looks like a lot of people trying to get attention and I'm probably one of the last people that like attention. I'm the introvert that knows how to act like an extrovert."
Chamillionaire's rose to prominence after the release of his album The Sound of Revenge was released through Chamillitary Entertainment and Universal Records on November 22, 2005. The album debuted and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the United States.
