The Sound of Revenge is the debut studio album by American rapper Chamillionaire. It was released on November 22, 2005. The album features guest appearances from Lil' Flip, Lil Wayne, Rasaq (his younger brother), Natalie Alvarado, Krayzie Bone, Bun B, Scarface, Billy Cook, Killer Mike and Pastor Troy, with its production handled by Scott Storch, Mannie Fresh, Play-N-Skillz, Cool, and Dre, among others.

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 debuted at number 10 on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 800,000 copies in its first two weeks, and it later became certified platinum by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), 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]
