The album's lead single is "Fly Like Me", featuring Amerie.His summer single, "Pullin Me Back" (featuring actor-R&B singer Tyrese), would find him back on top on the Hot Rap Tracks chart and help Hoodstar debut at number eight on the album chart, but the follow-up single "Dem Jeans", featuring Jermaine Dupri, fared worse although the album did go gold.Other singles from Hoodstar were "Brand New Kicks" and "Hands Up".Chingy attended Mc Cluer North High School in Florissant, Missouri, a suburb of St. During high school he was known to his friends as "Howie" and he continues to prefer this name amongst close friends and family.Ludacris and his manager, Chaka Zulu, were quick to sign Chingy to their fledgling Disturbing Tha Peace label.Unable to secure a distribution deal through Def Jam, Ludacris negotiated a deal to distribute the album through Capitol Records. Within a year of the release of Jackpot, It was certified Platinum by the RIAA.Guest appearances included Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Murphy Lee, I-20, Raindrop, Tity Boi of Playaz Circle, Trina, and Jermaine Dupri.

Louis rapper said: "I don't think Capitol really knew how to work urban artists, They're really stuck on pop and they didn't know how to market me." Hate It or Love It is Chingy's fourth studio album.The album featured production from Scott Storch, Timbaland, and Cool and Dre.In 2012 Chingy announced he was working on his fifth studio album called No Risk No Reward, DTP which was set to be released sometime in 2012, but as of June 2016 continues to be delayed due to lack of funding."Superhero", featuring Full Dekk Music Group's artist Chris Woodhouse, was purported to be the first single from the album.
