TUGE links up with long-time collaborator J.Cardim, for this raw record that showcases both of the artists' respective strengths. Cardim sets the stage with a hollow-melody fused with a hardcore-uptempo bounce. This seamless groundwork allows TUGE to flip flows at will, while exhibiting lyrical prowess and ability. His hungry sound and witty wordplay takes listeners on a journey that covers everything from hustling on the block to fighting to get the respect he feels he deserves as an emcee. "Rest in peace to Whitney, but when Whitney got the grammy, we had us a gram of Whitney", he raps. A MUST HEAR RECORD!

It’s that time of the year, XXL’s annual “Freshman List” was recently announced and with it comes the inevitable talking points that are generated by whom and who did not make the cut. While many fans have already added the young Sacramento spitter into the conversation, one thing is for certain, with the release of two new projects over the course of the next four-months, Chuuwee aims to prove he is definitely an emcee to watch and listen for.

Says Audible Treats President Michelle McDevitt, "SX provides a great platform for fans and industry insiders alike to witness live shows of dozens of up-and-coming artists before the rest of the world. Kreayshawn was a great example of that last year and we're looking forward to giving this year's attendees another sneak peak at the new class of emerging talent."

For this year's showcase, Audible Treats has partnered with media outles HipHop DX and Pretty Much Amazing, along with a variety of elite lifestyle and audio companies that will be providing free swag throughout the evening. Joining longtime sponsors such as Rocksmith Tokyo, FLüD Watches, Orisue, Aerial 7, and IM King, will be Fydelity and IMIXID.

Working closely with the best record labels and lifestyle companies since 2004, Audible Treats creates customized, effective marketing and publicity campaigns for countless clients, ranging the spectrum from legacy artists to Grammy-winners to rising stars including T-Pain, Too Short, Ed Lover, Anthony Hamilton, Black Milk, The Pharcyde, Slightly Stoopid, J*DaVeY and many more.
