@ChipFu, Formally Of The Fu-Schnickens, Returns With 2nd Solo


Chip-Fu, Formally Of The Fu-Schnickens, Returns With 2nd Solo Mix-Tape And Announces Forthcoming Solo Debut For Early 2013!

Over eighteen long years removed since the release of the Fu-Schnickens second and final group opus, Nervous Breakdown, the collective's true stand-out, and this by no means is any disrespect towards former members; Moc-Fu and Poc-Fu, however truth still be told, Chip-Fu is finally gearing up to unleash his long overdue, eagerly awaited debut solo collection, War Paint.

That being said, and as a precursor of sorts, the self-proclaimed Jungle Rock, Jr., has just dropped his 2nd mix-tape offering, STOP PLAYING VOL. 2, a follow up to 2009's first volume of the same name which secured over 80,000 downloads. The brand new set was initially introduced by its infectious premiere entry, "Tear Gas."

During his lengthy hiatus from the spotlight, Chip, a.k.a. The Perfectionist, and Co-Ceo of BlaqInk Entertainment, stayed extremely busy contributing catchy choruses to other high profile artists' projects, which, in turn, helped him to not only re-emerge onto the music scene but to also strengthen his unique brand of Hip-Hop. Throughout his musically absent years, he never for one minute stopped rapping, even releasing several popular singles; "Love Mi Sensi," "Ridiculous" and "Flowenometry"; of his very own. Off top, it is rather apparent that the man born Roderick Roachford has not lost a step lyrically, but, like a fine wine, has even gotten better in time.

"Those who listen to what's mainstream and call it Hip-Hop are sadly misled," the Brooklyn, by way of Trinidad, Barbados, native states very matter-of-fact. Re-iterating, the West Indian emcee further expresses, "My objective is and always has been to abstain from cookie cutter material. The public needs something fresh, Organic & Real."

In closing, Chip-Fu concludes sounding extremely prophetic, "I want to be remembered for my contributions to humanity through various mediums. Not just one-dimensional. Sure, many of us are duplicated and imitated in our own form of expression, but its only when we understand our personal purpose and reason for walking the planet that we in turn become untouchable. Fluid. Creative. That's me."

War Paint will be unveiled in early 2013...
