Chingo Bling 2nd
Last year Chingo Bling
recorded the video for "What Did He Said" and tracks for
several mixtapes. The accented rapping and comedic twist
may have been interpreted as a temporary gimmick by some
outside of Texas, but that was before Chingo recently hit
Billboard's Top 100 Rap albums chart with his latest
release "The Tamale Kingpin". Collaborations with artists
like Baby Bash and a variety of Gulf South and Southwest
rappers have made The Tamale Kingpin a legit album, a
throwback to the Biz Markie days when rap was actually
Between promotional tour events, Chingo stopped to answer a

Sharts...Por Favor Believe It!!!!! Air Chingo was just a
mextape that I try to keep raw and for the moment what I was

Cartel da album, and of course the best website on both sides
of the border: chingobling.com
Where are you originally from?
Well due to incidents with la Migra I chouldn't say...do u
guys work for them o que? However I have been known to kick it

Dymes, Viejas, Moneys, ju know the simple things in life.
Who makes the best flan?
ther's a shinese buffet aqui por la casa that has some off the
shain Flan, even though I prefer tres leches over any pinche
What's your favorite city to perform live in, and why?
That's a tuff question, I like doin' Houston where I live pero
it's nice to travel and see new places with nice wether and
great biejas like Tokyo for example. We're world wide, culeros!
If you were only allowed to bring one CD with you for the
road while on tour, what would it be?
Beto Quintanilla greatest hits screwed n chopped.
Chingo on Survivor Island: first to get booted, or would

Wait is that the chow where they make them eat frogs and chit?
Or is that the Fear factors? Well if the viejas are good i'll
stay on the island pero if there's no viejas and cock fights
and strip clubs then get me outta there!!! Even Gilligan had
ginger and that other babosa.
What does Chingo wear to the club?
Man it depends on the mood ju know? It could be an ostrich
throwback or even a trensh coat. Minks are cool as long as ju
stand out, get the viejas, and its customized from head to
toe, like my ostrich boots con el swoosh or my big belt
What's your secret to making tamales?
its a secret. but if ju need an answer not even my tamale
ladies could tell u because they are blind folded and naked
when they make em, they can't steal any ingredients and they
can't see what they're puttin in. it's hard for them to do it
but it looks great and it tastes good too.
