Album Review

He used to be known as Baby Cham, but there's no way anyone who recorded such a heart-wrenching — and yet incredibly infectious — tale of a poverty-stricken childhood as "Ghetto Story" could be called "Baby." The title track of Cham's ("just Cham") debut is such a convincing combination of rage and regret that an Internet rumor claiming the Jamaican government had banned the track was picked up as fact by plenty of journalists, and while it proved untrue, it certainly didn't seem impossible. The Ghetto Story album presents the revolutionary track — which is the worthy dancehall successor to Damien Marley's "Welcome to Jamrock" — in its original mix and two remixes: a decent one with Alicia Keys and an even better one with the perfectly chosen Akon. "Rude Boy Pledge" and a few other moments sprinkled about the album echo the seriousness of the title cut, but most of the tracks favor the swaggering and slick side of the man, a side that gets the party started with hook after hook locking onto rock-solid riddims. The sexy "Vitamin S" utilizes the same "Fiesta" riddim as Beenie Man's great "Dude" and comes within inches of topping it. His anthem "Cham" is ace, "Bring It On" is as convincingly cool as anything by T.O.K., and there are no sleazy efforts or filler to water down Cham's aggressive dancehall stance for non-Jamaican ears. Ambitious, exciting, well built, and — for anyone who cares about dancehall — unmissable. [Ghetto Story, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Vivid and Real

Life inside the slums of Jamaica is not pretty, and difficult for most to comprehend. Cham's description is real and vivid. His story is one of the many painful stories of the youths growing up amongst drug dealers, gun runners, ignorant tourists, and certainly Asian immigrants. All affects of years of exploitation. How anyone can expect race not be a part of life in Jamaica, certainly doesn't understand Jamaica or racism.

Hot Track

I had to go searching all over i-tunes for this. When I went down to Jamaica (the home of my parents) everyone was going wild over this song which was sometime back in March which shows how late I-tunes is. Besides that, i think this song is above average and tells the REAL story about Jamaican. How the REAL Jamaicans lived. Get It and Listen to the TRUE story about Jamaica.

amazzzzing

Biography

Born: Marverly, Kingston, Jamaica

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '00s

Cham, also known as Baby Cham, has become one of the more successful and critically acclaimed dancehall artists throughout the Caribbean -- a stunning feat given that he started up his career only in his teens. With a liking to laying vocals over riddims of relatively lower bpm's, he focuses on lyricism, but he has not shied away from making crossover hits. Teamed up with dancehall virtuoso and hit producer Dave "The Stranger" Kelly, Cham became the premier artist on Kelly's Madhouse record label...
