Hakeem Seriki (born 28 November 1979), better known by his stage name Chamillionaire, is an American rapper and entrepreneur from Houston, Texas. He is the CEO of Chamillitary Entertainment. Chamillionaire was also the founder and an original member of The Color Changin' Click until the group broke up in 2005.

He began his career in 2002 with independent local releases, including the collaboration album Get Ya Mind Correct with fellow Houston rapper and childhood friend Paul Wall. He signed to Universal Records in 2005 and released The Sound of Revenge under the label. It included the hit singles "Turn It Up" featuring Lil' Flip and the number-one, Grammy winning-hit "Ridin'" featuring Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs-n-HarmonyUltimate Victory followed the album in 2007, which was notable for not including any profanity. Chamillionaire is also known for his much anticipated Mixtape Messiah series, which ended in 2009.

In early 2011, he departed from Universal Records, which led to his would-be third album, Venom, going unreleased. Chamillionaire released his first independent extended play Ammunition in March 2012 and was not as his first major release since he left the label. Another EP, Elevate, was released on February 2013, followed by Reignfall, which was released in July of that same year. The EPs are among several to be released before his third studio album, Poison, which is currently being worked on.
