DANCEHALL GIANT BABYCHAM TO PERFORM IN SACRAMENTO AND CHICO IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA THIS WEEKEND
Dancehall artist, Cham (born Damian Beckett on February 24, 1977) is a Grammy Award-nominated Jamaican recording artist, most well known for his 2006 single “Ghetto Story” from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which led to multiple “story” songs by other artists in a similar vein. He is currently signed to Atlantic Records, and was previously known as Baby Cham, until 2005. He is still called “Baby Cham” by his Jamaican fans and fans from around the world.
The Miami New Times referred to Cham’s 2000 debut album Wow… The Story as “the most anticipated album in years from any reggae artist,” and a Washington Post review of a live Cham concert in 2006 described him as “the man who may be the next Sean Paul — a dancehall artist who crosses over to the U.S. hip-hop market.”
Throughout his career, Cham has collaborated with many hip-hop and R&B artists such as Foxy Brown, Alicia Keys, Carl Thomas, Shawn Mims, Akon, and many others.
