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

(comedic animation intended)

Please VOTE at This track was recorded for the Golden Age Contest for Dizzy Wright and the Still Moving Family.


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

Tired (Radio Edit)

A song that started as a freestyle verse on Satellite Radio on Sway in the Morning (Shade 45), the original CHU felt the emotion of the verse so much that it led to the making of a full track. Inspired by true events, CHU doesn't hold back. This song was the catalyst for the creation of The Open Book Experience (TOBE) LP set for release on November 25, 2016.
