Several hours later, the St. Louis rapper, whose career highlights include the Billboard Hot 100 top five hits "Right Thurr" (2003) and "One Call Away" (2004) -- addressed his Twitter popularity and clarified his statement.

"Everything I wrote has been taken completely out of content...but I'm trending though. lmao #LiveofACeleb #TwitterIsTheDevil #NoEndorsement," he wrote.

Chingy rose to fame in 2003 following the release of his massive hit "Right Thurr" and went on to sign to Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace label before leaving over financial disputes and creating his own Capitol imprint Slot-A-Lot. His 2003 debut Jackpot also hosted the Snoop Dogg and Ludacris-assisted track "Holidae Inn."
