Although he might be best known in the music community for his “Ridin'” smash hit, Chamillionaire is making a killing in the tech industry these days. The Houston native presents his Convoz app at the 2018 Upfront Summit in Los Angeles, Calif., linking up with Snoop Dogg to help him show off his product.
Stunning the investor and entrepreneur with his presentation alongside the veteran Long Beach rap star, Chamillionaire gives viewers and consumers a new social platform that he hopes can decrease cyber bullying and change the way users interact.
Convoz involves users uploading 15-second video clips to the app, which allows them to potentially interact with celebrities, as well as others who share their interests. According to the Upfront Ventures channel, “Convoz is a mobile video app that connects people across the world through collaborative face to face video conversations.”
During his presentation, the hip-hop entrepreneur shares some clips of users who have found success during last year’s soft launch of the app One of the videos shows a woman communicating through video with a random member of the military, sending them some words of positivity and encouragement while they’re in combat. There’s even some live footage from Shaquille O’Neal sharing his sentiments about the app with the crowd.
Some major names in the entertainment world are already involved in the app, including Snoop, Shaq, Trae Tha Truth, Trey Songz, E-40, Mya, Kelly Rowland, Big Boi and more.
