VIDEO- Cham "Ghetto Story"

Cham a.k.a “Baby Cham” (born Damian Beckett in 1979) is a Grammy Award-nominated Jamaican Dancehall Reggae recording artist. Any stage show featuring Cham, with his seasoned set of players, translates to authentic dancehall culture in the great tradition of live music that Jamaica’s musicians and artists have presented globally for five decades. Cham has come up through the ranks as a high-energy stage performer and musical recording artist who is one of today’s top acts in Dancehall Reggae.

Always creating original dancehall & cross-over music; throughout his career, Cham has collaborated with many hip-hop and R&B artists such as: Alicia Keys: “Ghetto Story”, Foxy Brown: “Tables Will Turn”, Damian Marley: “Fighter” and T-Pain: “Shottas", DJ Khaled featuring Cham and Rick Ross: “Bullet”, “Tonight” by Keke Palmer featuring Cham which is on the “Night At the Museum” feature film soundtrack, Akon: “Ghetto Story 3”, Mykal Rose & Bounty Killer: “Stronger”. Back in 1996, he collaborated with Wayne Wonder on the lead single of the “Joyride” Riddim produced by Madhouse which continues to be a classic dancehall cut for selectors.

Cham stays busy touring the world performing at festivals and concerts on almost every continent. His most recent album “Lawless” has garnered much press and the official videos have also received accolades.

This year (2018) has taken Cham to Europe for a string of sold-out festivals in the U.K and concerts throughout the east coast of the USA. His performance at the infamous Reggae on the River Festival and Reggae Sumfest (Jamaica) over the summer of 2018 were highly regarded as top of top performances.

In 2017 Cham toured around the world with many dates being sold-out as the Japan, his Japanese fans were thrilled to see the Dancehall superstar live. He also headlined the Bayfront Reggae and World Music Festival, Orlando Jerk Fest, and he joined the all-star talent on the “Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise”. His Lawless tour a major success in Europe, USA and Japan.

Cham is perhaps most well-known for his 2006 single “Ghetto Story” from his Atlantic Records debut album of the same name. “Ghetto Story”, led to multiple “story” songs by other artists in a similar vein. The song recently was mentioned in a Rolling Stone magazine article “Damian Marley on 5 Great Reggae Protest Songs” (10/23/17). 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.”

He is currently signed to Mad House Records, and is still called “Baby Cham” by his fans in Jamaica and around the world. Cham started out in the music business working with the Mad People Gang also known as Madhouse Productions. This relationship led to the released of hits such as “Many Many”, “Boom Tune” and “Man & Man”, all of these singles were also featured on his debut album.

Cham performs with his band, Mad People Gang, a set of musicians with whom he has been creating music since the beginning in their Sherlock Crescent community in Spanish Town.

Most current album, LAWLESS includes 10 tracks with videos released with producer and hit maker Dave Kelly and Madhouse Records. Cham is often seen with the "Lawless" message emblazoned on his apparel as part of his branding; the artist defines the term in this way: “when we say lawless we don’t mean take people's purses, we mean...a citizen of this world, no borders--we are all just one people.” As for the production process and his continued work with Dave Kelly, Cham notes, “music needs that chemistry, not just going into the studio, but where if you have chemistry with an individual you can make a hit.”
