In 1998 Chaka (left) co-founded the record label Disturbing tha Peace with Ludacris and Jeff Dixon.

Their performers included R&B singer Bobby V and rappers Shawnna and Chingy.

The independent label was founded to serve as a platform for rappers from the ‘Dirty South’, including Ludacris, a radio DJ at the time who was unable to score a record deal with a major label at the time.
