Are you surprised that Mike Jones is cutting ties with Swishahouse? Nope. Not at all. I guess some people thought I was lying when I said that he told me he was gonna build his own and leave the House. I wasn’t sayin’ that because I thought I was psychic. Everybody was running around sayin’ I was a liar. Since I first met him he said he was gonna do that, and since they first met him he was showin’ it, so I don’t see why anyone would be surprised. A long time ago Watts told me he was gonna rebuild the Swishahouse with new members. I didn’t think it was a good idea and didn’t think he was gonna do it but I respect him for pullin’ it off. Watts will probably make it work again.

I went to his shop about a year ago and was surprised at the custom vehicle work he could do. I gave him a bike to work on and he chameleon-painted it and chromed the entire bike and gave it back to me with my logo and face airbrushed in it. He was the first person I would see ridin’ around on custom candy and 26-inch rims with Lambourghini doors. He turned trucks into dooleys and cars into sedans. He customized and painted the candy red El Dorado that I bought that was in the “Turn It Up” video, and a drop top Fury that I got also. I got down with him on the car thing and now I’m just tryin’ to help a good dude take something that I feel could be big to the next level.

Do you think you and Paul Wall will ever make peace and record a song together, a la Jay-Z and Nas? We are at peace. I would rather hear JayZ and Nas’s duo songs, though. No Cham and Paul songs. That chapter in my life is dead. I seriously mean that.

Are there any other outside projects – shoe deals, clothing lines – you’re working on that we should know about? The Sound of Revenge is in stores! The Chopped and Screwed OG Ron C version is in stores also. Look out for Mixtape Messiah 2 and the Rasaq Reloaded mixtape. Let me get some more record sales first and I’ll start talking about all that other stuff later. Fans can check out www.myspace.com/ chamillionaire for all my tour updates.

Tell us about the car shop that you coown that was featured in the video for “Ridin’ Dirty.” My partner Big E is the brains behind Fly Rides. He’s been doing his thing in Houston for a while, but he’s an underdog. He does a lot but people just wasn’t seeing it.
