    KONCEPTZ: Why the name Chamillion Invisible Assassin?

    Chamillion: Well, I came up with these names when I weas 14, the year was 1996 the Street was Norman ST. on the west side of Bridgeport Connecticut. I saw the name Kameleon in a video game magazine, she was a female ninja from the video game Mortal Kombat. And Invisible Assassins is a book about Ninjas, written by Andrew Adams. I put it together and came up with that name, I love Martial Arts! As for the name Phantom Matlon

    Chamillion: I was in a chat room, (same age same year) a phone chat room, and I was asked what my name was, instead of blurting out my real name, which is uncommon, I was like "Phantom" or the "Phantom". The Matlon part came about the same year, I decided to try and come up with a word that did not sound like any other word, I came up with Matlon and put it together.

    KONCEPTZ: Where do you get you're inspirations for the songs you write?

    Chamillion: Well, I am not too big on inspiration, as far as like, others influencing me, I like my music to come from me. I guess I just get it from life, I am by no means a normal rapper, instead of rapping about being a criminal, I prefer to rap about being a vigilante who kills the criminals, I invented the "Anti thug" style. A lot of my material is either political, religious, battle or sexually orientated. I rap so different, when you combine my flow and delivery with my thoughts.

    KONCEPTZ: How did you get into rap/hip-hop?

    Chamillion: I was 9 years old, I guess I kind of fell into it, in 1991. I started out as a hobby, then I came to the conclusion I wanted to be the best that ever existed. Here I am at 22 still loving it, still hungry, and about to drop my first single. And hopefully put out this EP too!

    KONCEPTZ: Any News on upcoming projects, albums, mixtapes or eps??

    Chamillion: The first single titled "Wet Dreams". The EP titled "Manchuria". I am not too sure about the EP. It's an iffy, I hope I can put together this one particular record fast enough, all the other tracks are almost written. I started on the beat for this track, I just need the lyrics, and to finish up the beat. The single will feature as of right now, 2 tracks, Wet Dreams "Oh no they didn't" and Wet Dreams Two "Always hold you down" and a freestyle. I also plan to do an audio interview for it. As for the EP. I want that to be 6 tracks if I drop it.

    KONCEPTZ: Any collaborations you can name?
    Chamillion: None on the EP or single, I want myself to be heard, I want people to truly get a taste of what I am saying, and that's why the album titled Manchuria will as of right now be a double album. I am working on a collaboration with several other rappers on the side though, and my verse from that record will be played on the audio interview on the first single, just my verse though.

    KONCEPTZ: Your favorite artist at the moment?
    Chamillion: Myself, #2 Vakill of the Molemen out of Chicago, #3 Chino XL from New Jersey

    KONCEPTZ: Favorite Producer?

    Chamillion: #1 Timbaland #2 Neptunes #3 Dr. Dre #4 Myself

    KONCEPTZ: Have you ever done text or did you go straight to audio?
    Chamillion: Umm, I started rapping in 1991, I didn't get on the internet until 1998, I recorded my first song in 1996 titled, don't laugh! "Verbal Combat". So audio first, then when I got on the internet I rapped sometimes, I used to go on AOL in private room battle. That's where I meant Raskal, he's a rapper from Nevada, and I meant others there as well.

    KONCEPTZ: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
    Chamillion: Wow, good question! I am about to officially launch Manchuria Records, about to officially launch the first single hopefully by next month, if not December the latest! It's about time I drop something, been rapping WAY too long to wait any longer. I am horny anxious to drop something lol! I've been rapping for over 13 years now? I mean come on! I hope in five years to be in a position where I feel comfortable euipment, record sales and progression wise, only time will tell, I can't honestly say where I see myself being. Where I want to be is 2 Albums deep, or about to realease my second album with plenty of artist on my roster from any genre of music whether that be gospel, r&b, pop, classical, whatever! And I want to bring musicians together and show the world that, even if you absoultely hate a certain genre of music, you can still find beauty in it. Like how rap music has a lot of negative things in it a lot of the times because of the things a lot f rappers have seen or been threw, or whatever but, a lot of people have jobs because of it, and a lot of rappers have a whole lot of respect and love for each other because of they're talents.

    KONCEPTZ: U get sexually excited over releasin' music, What the fuck? lol

    Chamillion: LOL, hell yeah, I can feel it in my prostate

    KONCEPTZ: What are your feelings on the sudden surge of "Rappers" coming out since the release of 8 mile?

    Chamillion: Oh boy. Goodness! Fake ass Eminems? I can't stand wannabe rappers. I have been rapping for so long I am damn veteran, and wackness and wannabe's make me sick! I mean, just because you rap like someone doesen't make you good, and it doesen't make you them, so stop getting "inspired" and start getting original, and talented. I hate this confidence over talent B.S. too, like the people on American Idol, they swear they can sing, they are confident, but not talented. These are some Amercian Idol rappers out here. Imitations of your favorite rappers, store brand mc's, it's a joke!
    Chamillion: I am a damn Veteran*

    KONCEPTZ: Out of the rappers out now, who would you like to work with or learn from the most?

    Chamillion: Oh man, good questions! I wish you would have asked which producer. But, as far as rappers go. Hmm, I would have to go with Kanye West and Pusha-T of the Clipse. Kanye because, he is a producer and rapper like me, his album was the favorite album of 2004 (I used to hate his ass for the record, till I heard that album!) And there is probably a lot I can learn from him. And Pusha-T because, Pusha-T, Fabolous and Kanye West are my favorite of the over ground Mainstream rappers. I would love to work with Timbaland on the production side and Dr. Dre. Because of Timbalands talents #1 and his success #2. And Dre because he is a living legend, his career has been nothing short of amazing, and my goal is to surpass him.

    KONCEPTZ: How do you feel about all the beef happening in music lately?

    Chamillion: It's gay. It's so corny, over done, these rappers are drama queens. I mean for real, real bitches, no names either. Some beefs are down right ridiculous, if your going to beef let it fall under 1 or 2 catagories, #1 something worth beefing over, and #2 strictly on wax, strictlye business, to sell records, promote, or just to battle. The violence coming into play with it is what really makes it so bad.

    KONCEPTZ: Underground or mainstream?

    Chamillion: Combination of both, underground for the lyrics, and mainstream for the flow, dilevery's and beats. And as far as the business goes, both can work to your advantage depending on you!
