As much as we primarily focus on Hip-Hop's East and West Coasts, and the prime locations in-between, 2014 has broken down its geographical barriers arguably more than any year prior. The global reach of the culture continues to expand and strengthen. Connecting the bustling streets of Sacremento's own, Chuuwee, with the soulful sounds of German producers JR & PH7, "Meanwhile Off Mack" is sure to satisfy the palate of Hip-Hop connoisseur's worldwide: smooth, introspective bars that leap off the page joined by the smooth, late-night-ride type production from the European beatsmiths. Knowing JR & PH7's extensive catalogue and collaborations that include everyone from Sean Price and Skyzoo, to Saigon and Ras Kass, they're out to prove themselves to new listeners. With Chu's stunning rhymes that blend well with the hazy visuals, which stars the 24 year old rapper as he moves through a late night escapade, "Meanwhile Off Mack" is guaranteed to kick start the appeal of this collaboration.
"Meanwhile off Mack" is the debut single taken from JR & PH7 x Chuuwee's collaborative full length release, The South Sac Mack, which is set to drop sometime early next year, via Below System Records.
