Hip-hop star Chingy has dismissed reports he's embroiled in a bitter feud with fellow St. Louis, Missouri, rapper HUEY.
His rival is currently top of the U.S. charts with hit single Pop, Lock and Drop It, but Chingy denies any jealousy.
The dispute was believed to have escalated so much Chingy - real name Howard Bailey, Jr. - was reported to have threatened physical violence.
However, he tells AllHipHop.com, "The rumour said I was going to smack Huey and this and that. Of course I didn't say any of that. That's all rumours, so I want to clarify: Huey is my homeboy. There are no problems."
