Chingy (It's Whatever)

Album: single release only (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • "Chingy (It's Whatever)" is a defiant track where Digga D makes it clear he's ready to confront any opp. The drill rapper mixes his hard-hitting lyrics with catchy double (sometimes triple) entendres, keeping things relatively jovial.
  • During the chorus, he plays on '00s hip-hop artist Chingy's 2003 single "Right Thurr." Digga D also references an incident involving him and fellow CGM group members ZK and Jsav.

    Bait main road, bro don't know better
    Looked at bro like, "It's whatever, it's whatever, it's whatever"


    There is video evidence of a masked Digga, JSav and ZK firing shots at opps on a London road.
  • ItchyDaProducer supplied the jumpy drill instrumental. Itchy also co-produced Difgga D's collaboration with Charlie Sloth, "Fire In The Booth."
  • Digga D co-directed the visuals alongside Teeeezy C, which features house party settings. The rapper's fellow driller, Unknown T, cameos in a scene when the two are hanging out in a makeshift prison cell. (The two became friends after they coincidentally ended up on the same prison wing).
