A Rap Testimony: Who Is Chuuch Crum?

chuuchcrum1

Chuuch is a Hip Hop/Gospel rapper from Brookyln, Ny. He was born and raised in New York. I observed Chuuch at a recent artist showcase. His set seemed to have a deeper meaning. I met up with him to find out more about him. Chuuch likes getting a message out and putting a light on just how dirty he was, but he likes to focus on how God changed his life and how much further he can go.  The emotional rush of music is what made him get involved with music in the first place.  When I asked him what influences him the most he said..

“..Tragedy. Seeing people in a mindset where there is no hope. I do this for the hopeless because I needed it most when I was homeless.” “God is funny sometimes. You can be in a fire and not even realize you are not being burned.”

When it comes to other artists Chuuch feels like his passion for it all is what sets him apart. He has performed all across the United States and feels his best place he performed was on the street in Philly in front of the Black and Nobel. The Black and Nobel is an independently owned store that has books, DVD’s, art and events related to African American culture. He says the response was great, cars stopped and people pulled out their phones to record him. To his knowledge he is the first Gospel rap artist to do this.

“There is a roar inside of me that is undeniable.”

Right now Chuuch has three mixtapes out.

1. Straight Outta Chuuch

2. Judgement

3. Guilty

He will be dropping an EP soon called All Heart and will continue to push Gospel rap.

I decided to ask Chuuch what is one thing the Carolina market could improve he said

“The Carolina market could improve their drive and artists should push past the limits they were taught. There should be more people coming together.”

His goal for the rest of 2017 is to touch as many lives as possible while being able to complete his youth conference and his tours. His Hell’s Most Hated tour is still being booked for Atlanta, Dallas, Oklahoma, Philly, New Jersey, New York, and he says North Carolina is a possibility.

If it wasn’t for God and music Chuuch feels he would be gang banging or dead. He gave a strong shout out to Gwood of Greenville, NC who has been an intricate part of his success besides God. One thing Chuuch wants you to know is..

“For God I live for God I die..and I love my babies!”

Honey did you see the 2014 MTV VMA’s last night????? If you didn’t you missed a good eye blessing! Let’s get right on into it…kicking the show off was Ariana Grande with her song Break Free and then transitioned into Nicki Minaj performing Anaconda! Nicki came out in what looked like an ode to Poison Ivy. There was no six foot long anaconda that was rumored to be out during the set, but there sure was a WHOLE lot of BACK from BABY …OKAY?! Next after Anaconda came “Bang Bang” and Jessie J proceeded to sing her heart out with Ariana Grande, but this time Nicki Minaj had a wardrobe malfunction which she held together very nicely. There was a ghost whispering some where saying “let it go” as she held on to her dress for dear life.

The evening was pretty much decent. I must give an applause to Iggy Azalea for not moving around to much. Nobody really wants to see her dancing so her team did a good job of keeping that toned down. Iggy sticks to poses when she performs. Chile….moving on Usher came out dancing like a machine honey. I wanted to jump into tv land and give him oxygen myself. The R&B singer delivered a great performance of She Came To Give It To You and brought Nicki out for the feature.

Is is just me or did Rita Ora seem very “hype” last night? Wonder what that was all about. Taylor Swift gave some yawns although the crowd loved her performance. There could have been more excitement, and what’s with people wearing leotards. At one point I thought I was watching gymnasts at the Olympics. A great highlight from last night had to have been Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels serving Dumb and Dumber.

There were some moments when the urban community probably turned the channel but everyone was anticipating the Beyonce performance. Beyonce came through and did songs off of her album but teased everyone with not even 10 seconds of Flawless remix which would have been the best part of the night for the women. Beyonce pranced on stage, threw her hair, and let everyone know who Queen B is. Of course MTV put the camera on Blue Ivy and Jay Z during Beyonce’s performance and you could see that Blue is the spitting image of both of her parents but don’t you think shes really starting to look more like Jay Z now? Anyway Jay Z presented his wife with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award and had Blue Ivy on his arm.

The two kissed to show the world their marriage is fine but it kind of seemed awkward like the Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley kiss that seemed like a publicity stunt.

…….Remember that? Beyonce teared up when she accepted the award, said a few words and dashed off the stage. Chile…I needed more drama and scandal but I was satisfied with what I saw! Mtv you sure did come through! Yasssss!

Chile today’s news pops off with drama coming from 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather. You see, Floyd Mayweather struggles with reading and 50 Cent decided to challenge good boy Floyd to a read off. While every celebrity is doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, 50 decided to challenge Floyd to read ONE page from a Harry Potter book. If Floyd is successful 50 will donate $750,000 to a charity of Floyd’s choice. Now it might be a little funny but at the same its very sad. The Breakfast Club morning radio show decided to take things very far by  releasing unreleased audio of Floyd Mayweather struggling to read drops when he came to the station. Dj Envy says it usually takes someone 10 seconds to read, Floyd can be heard stopping and restarting and messing up his words. 50 Cent changed the book that Floyd would be reading from Harry Potter to The Cat in the Hat. Chile…..make sure your children are in school this semester and please join the PTA!

kevin-durant-8

Some interesting news is bubbling out of the pot today my friend. Have you ever worn Under Armour or know an athlete who has? Well Under Armour just made a power move on the NBA’s most valuable player. Kevin Durant was in a contract with Nike but that contract has now expired. Moving forward Kevin has now been offered a 10 year deal from Under Armour ranging between $265-$285 million. Kevin Durant is signed to Jay Z with Roc Nation Sports and will receive a stock in the company and other incentives. On the side Nike can still and has the right to match the offer for Durant. Sounds like a really BIG deal!

In other news relating to #Ferguson rapper T.I. decides to write a 2 part open letter ..Straight out of Atlanta rapper T.I. has chosen to express two open letters about the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. T.I. directs one to America and the other to “his people”.  T.I also released a song called New National Anthem featuring Skylar Grey which can be heard —> HERE!! <— You can read T.I.’s letters by going to Soul92Jams.com and going through the headlines to find the story. 

lupe

Lupe Fiasco is giving fans the opportunity to get a personalized 1 verse song for $500. There really is NOT a catch to this either! All you have to do is send him an instrumental and pick the mood and subject. The rapper will then record a verse just for you. Okay so maybe there is one small catch.. you have to pick up the physical copy of the CD which only has that one song on it and exchange that $500 dollars cash only. You have to sign a “usage contract” also when you pick up the cd. Hmm…are you going to send in your instrumental?

McFactz: COME THRU ..and READ!

rick-ross-meek-mill

Chileeeeeeeeeeeee … word on the street is Meek Mill is NOT being granted a hearing for his probation violation and will remain in jail until October. Earlier in the month reports said that Meek Mill had been sentenced to 3-6 months in county jail after a probation violation. Label owner Rick Ross jumped to give a response saying that Meek’s jail time would only be a few weeks but it seems that not even Ross had the final answers about the situation. The rappers legal team had a petition for an emergency court date thinking he would get out of jail as soon as possible. The request was denied. Meek Mill’s legal team says that he as done nothing that could warrant his probation being revoked. Today Meek pleaded for parole from his ongoing sentence but was denied. The judge ordered the rapper to take anger management and parenting classes, then said the earliest he would be released is October 11th. Will you still support Meek Mill and MMG? Will you listen to his new album when it drops? *Rick Ross grunt*

nelly

Rapper Nelly makes news today and has been criticized by some of his hometown residents for not actually visiting Ferguson, Missouri where #MikeBrown was shot and killed over a week ago. After speaking on the issue in interviews and at a celebrity football game, Nelly finally visited Ferguson. Nelly spoke words to a crowd in Ferguson and said the people need to remain peaceful. Also the rapper stated that they should look at their own actions.  Nelly spoke through a bullhorn. The rapper was quoted saying .. “There’s more doctors. There’s more lawyers. There’s more teachers. There’s more black billionaires. There’s more black millionaires. You got options brothers and sisters. We got to understand we got options and stop choosing the reaction option.” The crown gave applause and shouts of agreement during the speech. Some onlookers asked Nelly what was his plan moving forward, and someone responded to Nelly from when he told the people “You got options” and said “You got options, – you’re rich.” 

Protests continue for #JusticeForMikeBrown in Ferguson, Missouri.

#McFactz: I got the JUICE!

jeezy2

Soooo lets get started! Jeezy reveals his album tracklisting for Seen It All. Are you interested in what Jeezy has to deliver this coming season? After causing controversy for his use of an eye on the album cover many associate with the “illuminati” ( a term many use but still have no definite answer about, who what, where, when or why ) Jeezy goes on to respond to critics by saying he doesn’t know what “that” is. The Snowman squashed beef with Miami native Rick Ross and taps him for a feature on the album. Check out the track listing below. Will you buy or download on September 2nd?

1. ¬ Block
2. What You Say 
3. Black Eskimo
4. Enough
5. Holy Ghost
6. Me OK
7. 4 Zones
8. Addicted – (featuring T.I. & YG)
9. Fuck The World

Drake-2014
Drake makes news for dissing Tyga, Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne’s platinum single “Loyal”. It seems Drake just was not feeling the track so while on stage in Illinois for the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour Wayne rapped his verse on the Loyal track and Drake started talking to the crowd. “That sh!t sounds like a f%king car commercial or some sh!t,” “That’s what y’all cheering for? This nigga Tyga at the movie theater with Chris and sh!tt.” Now Chris Brown is currently on probation so could it be Drake is just trying Chris to see where this would go?? Drake and Chris reportedly had issues in the past dealing with Rihanna but then again the name of the tour is Drake vs Lil Wayne so maybe the two rappers are battling for fan support. Seems smart.
 
luda
Ludacris has a new album dropping soon. The title he chose is “Ludaversal”. On a show called “Rising Star” that Luda just so happens to be a judge on he reveals backstage that his new single “Chance To Win” will be ready in about two weeks. Pharrell produced the track and right now it is being mixed and mastered. With a few features here and there from Luda, we haven’t really gotten to much music from him as a whole but maybe that is about to change. Luda is an actor but also has great lyrics to support his talent.
