Attention Hip-Hop fans everywhere, there has been a alert on code red for a missing rapper.

Howard Bailey, Jr., known to some as Chingy, has been absent from the rap scene since 2007 after the release of his fourth studio effort, Hate It Or Love It.

The week after sales for the album were reported for the release, the rapper disappeared, last seen wandering around St. Louis still trying to find a comeback hit and figure out why he ever left Distrubin Tha Peace.

Thankfully folks, Mr. Bailey has finally been recovered after minimal investigation.

Chingy, seen as the hater that won’t accept the diss from his girl, will be playing the role of Kenneth.

Currently signed to Slot-A-Lot/Real Talk, the rapper is gearing up for his fifth album, Success & Failure, which is slated to drop June 22.  With all the other major release from other rappers, let’s hope that Chingy doesn’t get lost again in the fog when the project actually drops.  Not sure if he can be found again.
