Chamillionaire Wants to Help Rappers Get Hip to Fresher Tech


The biggest tech thing rappers know is Napster … That’s why I’m so adamant about letting people know why I’m [at tech conferences]. There’s a whole audience of people that are influencers that people aren’t seeing here.” —Rapper Chamillionaire at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference, criticizing the dearth of rappers at these types of events. Chamillionaire, who pointed out that most rap fans use torrents instead of iTunes, urged his compatriots to keep up with where the market is heading, adding “If my ship is about to sink, I need my lifeline ahead of time. The artists, they don’t know.” [Business Insider]
