The Sound of Revenge is the debut studio album by American hip hop recording artist Chamillionaire. The album was produced by Scott Storch, Mannie Fresh, Play-N-Skillz, Cool and Dre, among others. It was released on November 22, 2005 with guest appearances from Lil' Flip, Lil Wayne, his younger brother Rasaq, Natalie Alvarado, Krayzie Bone, Bun B, Scarface, Billy Cook, Killer Mike and Pastor Troy. The album also has the release of "screwed and chopped version" by DJ OG Ron C. Chamillionaire and Krayzie Bone won the Best Rap Performance By A Duo or Group Grammy for the song "Ridin'". In 2009, Chamillionaire released Mixtape Messiah 7 and explained on the final track of disc 1 that he was also going to be considered for the Best New Artist Grammy but, bootleggers caused him to be disqualified by releasing unauthorized Chamillionaire albums the same year his debut was released.

The album sold 800,000 copies its first two weeks, and later went platinum, selling more than 1.5 million copies in the United States.[7] The non-album single, "Picture Perfect", peaked at number 28 on Hot Ringtones.[8]
