Famous Local Guide
Growing up in North St. Louis, Chingy found himself rhyming and rapping in his teens. He then went on to help put the St. Louis rap scene on the map with hits like "Right Thurr" and "One Call Away." Despite the fame, a double platinum album, and multiple world tours, he still chooses to call St. Louis his home and loves spending time here hanging with his family and recording music. You can still catch him on tour with Nelly from time to time, rapping the hits we love. Read more about Chingy in our Famous Locals guide and follow him on Twitter @ChingyJackpot.
