Honestly, only my inner circle knows how much I love Chuuwee’s music. I started listening to Chuuwee several years ago and it was funny to me on how slept-on he was an artist. Chuuwee was an artist that inspired me to start Prescribed Music. The blog became an opportunity for myself to provide an outlet for artists that I believed in once I hit that play button. The first track I ever listened to from Chuuwee was “Post Mortem”. I remember listening to a track titled, “Get No Better” from the rap group, Clear Soul Forces on YouTube. After the track finished, I saw Chuuwee’s “Post Mortem” on the related section of YouTube and I clicked to watch the video. Best decision I ever did. After pressing play on the track, I was immediately hooked to Chuuwee’s vibe and movement. No lie, I over played “Post Mortem” to the point that my boys wouldn’t let me play the track anymore when they were around. I also remember skipping class that day, doing research on Chuuwee (finding out that he reps Sac-Town), and exploring his discography as an artist to see what other tracks I could find.
The next track that I fell in love with was “French Inhale”. The track featured Jonathan Lowell. For some reason, I couldn’t find any Chuuwee tracks after I listened to “Post Mortem”, so hearing “French Inhale” was great for me as a fan who wanted to keep up-to-date with Chuuwee’s movement. After hearing “French Inhale”, the next sound I listened to was Chuuwee’s collaborative project with Lee Bannon titled, “Hot N Ready“. Honestly, the tape was so infectious. The project left me wanting more and I remember how my boys and I would bump the project once classes were over for the day. The tape just had that instant classic feel and it was funny how my boys kept thanking me for putting them on to Chuuwee.
After the “Hot N Ready” phase, my next exposure to Chuuwee was the GODLY duo project from him and Trizz titled, “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted”. You guys don’t even know about this project. “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted”, is literally one of the most underrated projects that I’ve listened too in a while. Chuuwee and Trizz both killed that project and after listening to that mixtape, I knew that Chuuwee was really a special artist that created his own lane, which is probably the reason why I messed with him so much. Additionally, I do have to add that after listening to this project and watching the videos dropped from the mixtape, I did my due diligence to find out more on Trizz as well. I need to stress the fact to not sleep on Trizz. The boy is one of the best lyricists in the game and I recommend you search for his music on the blog and get educated. “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted” will forever be a special project because it was a mixtape that was so relatable and simply dope.
Below I will put my favorite tracks from the “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted” project, but after over playing “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted”, I patiently waited for Chuuwee’s next work, which was “The South Sac Mack”. The project was another collaborative LP effort, this time with the German production duo, JR & PH7. The production on the project was bar none and the whole feel of the project provided good vibes that one could bump all day. Basically, the LP crafted a perfect atmosphere for the ideal listening experience and as a fan of Chuuwee, it was great to hear more music from one of my favorite artists.
Even though, “The South Sac Mack” project was dope in my book, I still hoped that Chuuwee and Trizz would link up again to present another collaborative mixtape. For those Chuuwee and Trizz fans out there, you know that both emcees decided to bless us with that second installment of “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted”. I remember the release of the project too. My birthday is in March and I remember both artists decided to release it late March just before 4/20. The day “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted 2” dropped, I was honestly the happiest guy at my college. It was a dope project that any fan could ask for. So many classics on that project and even though the mixtape may be 7-8 months old, my boys know how much I still bump the second installment mixtape till this day. All I need to say is play that “Micheal Koors Lite” track below which is from “AmeriKKa’s Most Blunted 2”.
Now, Chuuwee has blessed us with his recent drop of “Economics” and his Dragon-Ball inspired album titled, “Super Supreme“, which our team had the honor of premiering this past weekend. My only hope for 2017 is for artists like Chuuwee to get more recognition and appreciation for their work, because you guys don’t even know how much Chuuwee’s music has inspired me since I followed his movement. Even though I didn’t catch the bandwagon as early as I would of liked, every new release that Chuuwee drops, gets me excited and happy because I get to witness one of my favorite artists do his thing and inspire others with examples of hard work.

PRESCRIBED MUSIC: What kind of music were you into growing up? What artists had a particular influence on you before you started your career?
I’ve always been into any and everything, my mom has the widest range of musical taste I know so she put me on a lot of game. Ozzy Ozbourne, Motley Crue, Run DMC, BIg Daddy Kane, all the classic hip hop shit and some power rock 80’s. From there I found shit on my own like Big L, Jay Z, Nas, Slim Thug, Screwed Up Click. You name it I honestly probably bump it I’m all about my music so I know as much as I possibly can.

Kanye West, Metro Boomin, Future, Kendrick Lamar, Steven Cannon, Erykah Brady, Dej Loaf & Curtis Williams on my feature list right now.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: What can fans expect from a live Chuuwee performance? Also, what is the first thing that comes to mind when you step on stage to perform?
Grunge Rock energy before it was cool to incorporate rock n roll into your hip hop. My live shows are action packed. There’s is not one single dead moment don’t ring a Chuuwee set always high energy and chaos. First thing that comes to my mind no homo is “slay” lol in the most un-Beyoncé way possible.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: Any pre-show rituals before you take the stage?
I take 2 mind joules which are hemp gummies one of my sponsors makes. They help you to focus so 2 of those 30 mins before showtime and a European spliff to the face is all I need.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: Where would you most like to perform, if given the opportunity?
Coachella or Made in America. I swear to god I am built for festival performances.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: Tell us something that fans would be surprised to know about Chuuwee?
He’s not as much as an asshole as the populous wants him to be. I’m actually a really kind hearted person. I’m not an atheist either (you won’t believe some of the shit I end up hearing about myself)
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: If an individual never listened to your music before, what three tracks would you recommend from your discography?
Fire & Ice
6 Feet Deep
Crack The Windows
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: What is one word to describe Chuuwee?
Enthusiastic. By its original definition.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: What do you hope to accomplish throughout your career?
I want to establish myself as a groundbreaking innovator in hip hop music. I’d also like to have a sold out tour and be the connecting gap for musical genres otherwise never blended. I have a lot of ideas and a peculiar sound that’s one of its own and I feel like music period needs my contributions to it.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: Specifically, in a sense that transcends beyond Hip-Hop or Rap, what defines creative genius to you?
Pure talent, determination, manipulation. When people take the worst of a situation, the negative, the criticism and create something on a larger level. When pe ole drive themselves to the point of almost insanity or any other social disorder because they have a passion to pursue something they’re in love with. That’s what creative genius is.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: Do you have anything in the works that fans should be excited for?
I’m dropping an album saga. Initially it was a 5 part album but I eventually turmed it into a series. Almost like an audio anime. The Dystopia series. It has 5 albums in it contributing to one bigger picture which is my portrait of all the issues in today’s world.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: What words of inspiration can you offer to today’s youth?
DO WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT AS LONG AS NOONE GETS HURT IN THE PROCESS. A lot of shit tha was looked down upon when I grew up is the center of the hype now. A lot of cas out here have no integrity and are literally doing anything for relevance. Do what you wanna do. Be who you are that’s all I ever been doing since the first day.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: Any shout outs?
Shout outs to my day ones and year zeroes. Shout out to Prescribed Music for the interview I fuck with y’all tough.
PRESCRIBED MUSIC: What’s your favorite blogs to find music?
