CBC Searchlight Song Competition

At "The Open Book Experience" album release concert, The Original CHU had a contest where the winner got to sit with the CHUBLAQA PRODUCTION team, pick an instrumental, choose a topic for the song, then later witness the recording of the song. This is a chronicle of the journey and the song that resulted.

World Suicide Prevention Day

I teamed up with the Canadian Mental Health Association for this inspirational video of hope.

This project was created for Edmonton's Lift the Silence: Suicide Awareness Week 2017 in commemoration of the Annual September 10th World Suicide Prevention Day.

The Open Book Experience LP (Full Album on YouTube)

DIZZY (Thanks) - a track I did for the Golden Age Rap Contest with Dizzy Wright.

After watching countless artists complete either the #sogonechallenge or the #shookoneschallenge, I decided to be the first person to combine both challenges simultaneously on the same track. Hope you enjoy.

A song that started as a freestyle verse on Satellite Radio on Sway in the Morning (Shade 45), I felt the emotion of the verse so much that it led to the making of a full track. Inspired by true events, I don't hold back. This song was the catalyst and genesis for the creation of The Open Book Experience LP.
