Get Familiar - Chuuwee Interview

Chuuwee is a a 27 years old, Sac-Town (Sacramento, California) rhymesayer who has worked with Large Professor, Del The Funky Homosapien and Lee Bannon to name a few. He’s been opening act for Mistah Fab, Rakim and Rymefest amongst others. We at Playas Only were not that hip about Chuuwee but after a few listens, we must say. Chuuwee gets it poppin!

 

He has a new Project titled Passover which is part 3 of 5 in a series named Dystopia. Check it out below, you will not be disappointed.

 

 

PlayasOnly.Com: I’ll be honest with you, Passover is the first project we’re hearing from you.  From my understanding this is part 3 of a 5 part series.


Chuuwee: ”Yes, "PassOver" is part 3 of the Dystopia album series. Part 1 was "Paradiso" and part 2 "Purgator".



 
PlayasOnly.Com: Where can we find the other music you have created?



Chuuwee: "I have music anywhere and everywhere that sells or streams music. My reverbnation page is still up even."

 

 

 



 "Dystopia is the first project that connects multiple albums together."

 

 

PlayasOnly.Com: Is there anything we’re missing out on that connects all projects together?



Chuuwee:   "Not entirely, Dystopia is the first project that connects multiple albums together."



 
PlayasOnly.Com:Does each project have a different production? On this project it’s Khalisol. The production is tight! We're feeling the production.



Chuuwee:  "Yea every project I work with different producers. People just email beats over sometimes or I’ll meet someone and we’ll end up working a lot together."



 
PlayasOnly.Com:How did you hook up with Khalisol? He’s out in New Mexico, you’re from Sacramento.



Chuuwee: "Sol sent me a bunch of beats in 2015 then he connected me to a promoter to do my first New Mexico show in 2016. After that we just kept building and talking and at one point I’d had so many beats from him we just decided to make an album out of it. It wasn’t until last year however that I decided to make it apart of the Dystopia brand."

 
PlayasOnly.Com:How’s the Sacramento hip-hop scene, who else is doing music out there that you feel is worth a listen?


Chuuwee: "Our hip hop scene is growing pretty fast I think I have to credit that to the success of Mozzy. But right now in Sac I highly recommended listening to Dceased, Nate Curry, Anton Xavier, Ronin VII, Abstract Ninjaa, Tavis, & Redd. Those are my favorite artists right now."

 
PlayasOnly.Com: I notice various Tupac references throughout some of your tracks. What does Tupac mean to you?  Why do you reference him so much?

 

 

"Tupac is a renaissance man. Outside of his music Tupac actually cared about people and our society. He’s the perfect example of going mainstream and using your power for greater good."



Chuuwee: "Tupac is a renaissance man. Outside of his music Tupac actually cared about people and our society. He’s the perfect example of going mainstream and using your power for greater good. Best part is that most of the stuff he did is off record. So all the stuff they publicly glorify him for is baby steps compared to things he did behind closed doors. Tupac is the closest reincarnation to Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara and many other great Humanitarian Leaders that we need right now in 2018."





PlayasOnly.Com: Your sound doesn’t sound like the traditional, California sound. The G-Funk infused style. Are you intentionally straying away from that sort of sound?


Chuuwee: "Well I've always been more into music from outside of California, and I spent my childhood in San Antonio. So i just naturally have my own style from all of the variety of musicI grew up with, but i also make my music solely off of energy. I guess the sound you hear is the vibration I gravitate toward most."

 

 

"Vices, Moloch & Pusha Lady. Those showcase my diversity as an artist the best.
"

 



PlayasOnly.Com: Which is your favorite song on this project?



Chuuwee: "Vices, Moloch & Pusha Lady. Those showcase my diversity as an artist the best.
"

 

PlayasOnly.Com: What is your overall favorite track that you have ever completed?


Chuuwee: "I don't think I have one because I’m a perfectionist and i'm also constantly creating so I always fall in love with something new. I guess right now a song I have on an album called "Hentai" It's called Xvideo. "Give a fuck like it's XVideos in the browser".


PlayasOnly.Com: Who’s your favorite producer, and why?


Chuuwee: "Kanye West & Pharell are my favorite producers. Composition, Range, Diversity, Classics, Hits. They have genuine prowess in producing i feel like. Not too many people can start Backpack then jump to Grammies and Pop Music AND be an artist themselves. Outstanding."





PlayasOnly.Com: What are your thoughts on the current state of Hip-Hop? Are you one to think that Hip-Hop is “dead”?


Chuuwee: "It's not dead at all. It's in a transitional state. People are too afraid to be themselves in a state of change. They feel like they have to fit in not to be left behind. Meanwhile tho i'm just creating my own exit. It's not dead at all. It's changing. "

 

We At PlayasOnly.Com highly recommend Chuuwee, his music is available on all stremaing services and here's  his lastest project available on Sound Cloud. Our personal favorites, off top are: Limitless, Moloch, Heaven/Hell and Pusha Lady.

 

PO certified, we  suggest you give this a try.
