The Open Book Experience LP


Available Now!

Raised from humble beginnings in a single-parent home with 3 siblings, the original CHU tended to keep to himself and be silent when faced with adversity. That is, until now. The Open Book Experience LP is an explosion of suppressed emotions, fears and anxieties wrapped into a story riddled with pain, despair and eventually triumphs. The musical journey chronicles a lost soul chasing his musical dreams until forced to make a decision at a pivotal crossroad in his life. After a 20-year hiatus, he has reclaimed the one thing that always made him whole – his music. 


CHU is one half of the ChuBlaqa Production Team, which is rounded out by Jey Blaq. In addition to producing and writing tracks for R&B, Hip-hop and Pop talents, the original CHU has poured his heart and soul into the mic with a heartfelt, “Open Book’, diary-style hip-hop LP.
