La Chat gained national popularity from appearing on Project Pat's Southern classic "Chickenhead" and starring in the successful independent film Choices. But Murder She Spoke, La Chat's debut album, served as her official introduction to the world.

On the debut, she unapologetically spits brash, gritty, and gangster lyrics complimented with a distinct Southern twang. And DJ Paul and Juicy J's signature quaking production managed to smooth out any lyrical kinks.

"Ghetto Ballin'" is a memorable cut off Murder She Spoke. Over a bass-ridden beat boasting a sample of Willie Hutch's "Now That It's All Over," Chat, Paul, and Juicy give listeners a taste of what it's like to hail from a disadvantaged environment but afford a desirable lifestyle.
