Cham’s love of music outweighed his talent for sports and from his teenage years he devoted himself to improve his music skills. Cham glow a trail of hardcore classics like Many Many, Boom Tune, and Man and Man. These were collected on Cham’s magnificent 2000 debut album, Wow: The Story.
By 2003 Cham has crossover hit, Vitamin S, an energetic hit bouncing to the beat of Madhouse’s overwhelming, Fiesta. The music jumped from Jamaican sound systems to worldwide radio and club play. Cham soon signed a deal with Atlantic Records, home to hit makers Sean Paul and Lil’ Kim and Fat Joe. Cham and The Stranger made a dancehall masterpiece, Ghetto Story, which hit the streets like a bomb at the end of 2005. Ghetto Story became an instant classic; it was Cham’s survival story.
Cham’s Ghetto Story explores the root causes behind the chronic brutality that has plagued Jamaica for a quarter century. For Cham, it was a story that has to be told for us to know where we are and where we’re going. Cham was set to change the dancehall game through his smash hit. The world was ready for Cham’s music and for the history that Cham began to create. Ghetto Story presents the triumphs as well as the tragedies, lives that was lost as well as the fortunes that was won, epic struggles that can experience every day, not seen by most prosperous citizens. Ghetto Story has millions of it; stories that has never been told.
Ghetto Story Chapter Two features Alicia Keys, while Ghetto Story Chapter Three features Akon, Tic Toc, Rudeboy Pledge and Boom Boom features Rihanna.
Cham believes how important it is that the Ghetto Story be heard. And it started to make a history.
