Chamillionaire Urges Fellow Rappers To Become Tech-Savy

Kooba says that while he’s attending tech conferences and broadening horizons, many of his peers are stuck in the Napster-era.

Business Insider reports that Chamillionaire had some harsh words for other emcees regarding their alleged technological ignorance when he spoke at the recent TechCrunch Disrupt conference. “The biggest tech thing rappers know is Napster,” said the platinum Houston rapper.

Kooba went on to say that other Hip Hop artists should engage more with the online world and learn how to make technology work for them. Chamillionaire explained his appearance at the tech conference was a way to stay in touch with the future of music. He stated, “If my ship is about to sink, I need my lifeline ahead of time. The artists, they don’t know.”

Chamillionaire’s third full length, Venom, is still awaiting release after being delayed several times.
