The Visionary

Chantel Calloway realized that she had hit rock bottom after getting arrested for robbing a Metro Atlanta bank in 2010. While sitting in a jail cell, she made herself a promise. She said that she would get out, change her life and pursue her dreams. Five years later, her dreams turned into reality when she launched her hip-hop inspired board game Rhyme Antics.

The Vision – Rhyme Antics

Rhyme Antics is described as “Catch Phrase meets karaoke” and involves freestyling to a beat provided by the game’s accompanying mobile app. Players engage in a battle of words to test their vocabulary and speed. Calloway, a Boston native, launched Rhyme Antics through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. It exceeded its $10,000 goal by pre-selling more than 300 copies in 30 days. “Rhyme Antics is my labor of love,” she said. “It’s a game changer, because it promotes literacy while paying homage to the roots of hip hop artistry. It adds a tremendous amount of value back to our culture and community. We are creating a unique experience for players to laugh and learn at the same time, and what could be better than that?” Calloway said that her mission is to help improve literacy nationwide and to inspire people to “dream big” regardless of their past circumstances.

  1. Thank you for this honest article. After I saw Ms. Calloway’s name on my Paypal receipt (not knowing who it was), I looked her up on Google, and saw her past indiscretions. I was a few clicks away from asking for a refund, (believing it was a scam) but saw this article. I am all for second chances, and hope that this is a path for Ms. Calloway to move forward.

    • Thanks for writing! I appreciate your comments. I’m so glad that you gave the game and Ms. Calloway a chance. As the quote says, “It is not our mistakes that define who we are; it is how we recover from those mistakes.” I’d say that by changing her life, becoming an entrepreneur and trying to make a positive impact in her community, Ms. Calloway is recovering pretty well.
