Sept. 18, 2007 at 1:42 PM

ATLANTA, Sept. 18 (UPI) -- Houston rapper Chamillionaire said the title of his sophomore album, "Ultimate Victory," refers to his artistic goals.

"The victory is when you realize what's important," Chamillionaire, whose real name is Hakeem Seriki said. "I wanted to have substance on every song this time, (on) the whole album. So even if it's a club song, it's got a concept to it. You've got to find ways to keep yourself excited."

Chamillionaire's first album, 2005's "The Sound of Revenge," sold more than 6.5 million copies worldwide and won a Grammy Award. Weird Al Yankovic parodied the hit single "Ridin' " as "White & Nerdy."

"Ultimate Victory" features guest appearances by Slick Rick, Lil Wayne and Bones Thugs-N-Harmony's Krayzie Bone.
