As Dallas prepares to host the 2010 NBA All-Star Game, hip-hop’s internet king Chamillionaire decided to show the world that, although his native H-Town’s glory days are in the rearview (for now), the state of Texas is still a force to be reckoned with. Accordingly, we’re now faced with Main Event, a Southern soaked banger that rides heavy on a synth-heavy beat by producer Chops and features rhymes from Chamillionaire (of course), Paul Wall (where’s he been?), Slim Thug (who swears like a sailor) and newcomer Dorrough (a.k.a the Ice Cream Paint Job dude). Personally speaking I can’t say that any of these emcees tear up the track, but they certainly do the Lone Star proud. So how about it Booth? Is this track a main event or merely a sideshow? You be the judge. While Main Event is only a promo single, Cham’s new album Venom is set to (very tentatively) drop on March 16. In the meantime, you know where to keep checking for the latest updates.
