After dropping the visuals for the single “Meanwhile Off Mack” late last year. The team of Chuwee, JR & PH7 finally hit us up with their full length project. As the title goes, The South Sac Mack is not just for show but way deeper than what you may think if you aren’t familiar with Chuwee’s music.
I must say this project will keep heads nodding from start to finish. The production team of JR & PH7 craft a godly concoction of soul/RnB influenced boombap/trap canvass for Chuuwee and well the homie doesn’t disappoint one bit. From the cinematic Meanwhile Off Mack, the 80s cloudy Due Yuu to the action packed Riverside Ransom, there are so many gems to latch on to.
I will end my piece here and say, go get that lp right away.
JR & PH7 and Chuuwee are pleased to release their collaborative LP, The South Sac Mack. The project brings the German production duo together with the Sacramento spitter for 17 breezy tracks that epitomize the sound of the new West, courtesy of Below System Records. 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. 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 Sack Mac succeeds in transporting us to the midst of the 916.
