Chuuwee and JR & PH7 Pay Tribute To Sactown with The South Sac Mack.

JR & PH7 and Chuuwee are pleased to announce news of their collaborative LP, The South Sac Mack. The project brings the German production duo together with the Sacremento spitter for 17 breezy tracks that epitomize the sound of the new West. The South Sac Mack will give listeners a street level perspective of Sactown.

This is not the first time that both producers have aligned their production talents with Chuuwee. After hearing about Jorg & Peter through a close friend who has worked with them in the past, Chu began an email exchange that eventually led to them working together on multiple songs. 2012’s “Travelin”, “It Is What It Is”, and “Just Like SAC” not only allowed for them to create music for their fans, but also to develop a rapport that forged their chemistry for, SSM. Unlike other bonds between their contemporaries, Chu and JR & PH7’s ties grew stronger organically, and not in hopes of chasing a check; these characteristics reflect beautifully on the album.

With a background in soulful Boom Bap, the album manages to blend '90s fundamentals, with a twist of West Coast sensibilities. The final product is a hybrid, perfect for the modern day head that stands out among most contemporary Hip-Hop works. Thematically, the decision to name a handful of tracks after neighborhoods throughout Sacramento, gives the listener a first-person narrative, that puts themselves in the shoes of Chuuwee, as they get to experience Cali's capital city. Tracks like the stream of consciousness driven “Meadowview Morning,” which describe the area as a microcosm where everyone’s actions are connected, and “Meanwhile Off Mack,” which creates a “Me Against The World” scenario between the protagonist, and those around him through its memorable chorus, allow us to see Sacramento in a unique light. This particular theme is continued on tracks such as the Blu assisted “DueYuu”, "James Rutter (Swim Center)” and “Florin High Flirt”, where Chuuwee highlights the various spots that have all played a role in developing the person that he is today. Conversely, joints such as the rough around the edges “Riverside Ransom,” show that Chuuwee can throw down some gully bars when needed, further showcasing the multitalented efforts of both the rhymer, and production duo.

In terms of crafting the perfect sound for Chuuwee to speak his mind, fostering an organic work flow was the most important aspect for this album to take shape “ We just wanted to create a sound that we feel goes well with Chuuwee and the story he is telling on the record,” say the European beatsmiths. “The whole process was super smooth, and we let it flourish naturally based on the subject matter and the overall scope of the album," they conclude.

For such a broad album that both manages to highlight Sactown’s features, through Chuuwee's words, and JR & PH7's lush soundscapes, The South Sac Mack succeeds in transporting us to the midst of the 916.

Track Name: Meanwhile Off Mack
[Intro]
Turn me up a little bit
Yo...

[Verse 1]
Pick my phone up where my niggas at?
Saturday nobody ever seem to hit a nigga back
Yesterday it was a party in my city in the jack
I'm from Gerber so I knew my niggas was gone be in that
Going dumb
It was jumping it was really really packed
Then somebody yelled "Starz Up!" and "Where the semi at?"
But ain't nobody think that he was really really strapped
So niggas kept on grabbin on that pretty titties ass titties ass
Its a pity where we livin' its a fact
Every gathering or meeting niggas finne bring a strap
But anyway they walked into the yard in the back
Niggas said he had a gun we just figured it was bad
And plus I add my new bitch with me and my side bitch hit me like
Ima slide thru it was like 10:50
Nigga it was my party she could slide if she want to
Im just glad that we all survived when the guns blew

[Hook 2x]
South Side Sac is a danger zone
Where no man can withstand
Without standing with chrome
In His Hand

[Verse 2]
Watch out for them bad bitches in my city they a trap
They'll have you at the crib niggas rushin sprayin that
Lay em flat
Man bitches they be saying they be chatting
Plottin on a nigga with some cheese and a pad they give ass
She was buggin "You don't never hit me back"
I told her I'll get wit her when I'm back up in The Sac
She send me angry faces like she's really really mad
But she got a jones for a nigga really really bad
But shit I didn't know it was a nigga sendin that
Until i went to see her she was tryna give me ass
They knockin on the window and they brought the mini mac
I'm runnin through the kitchen all I heard was "GET HIS ASS"
I'm jumpin over fences like fuckin Olympiads .. jumpin hurdles
Man I wish I would've got that Semi back
Back when me an Hennessy was trappin at his baby mama pad
But I'm happy that I made it out of that

[Hook 2x]
