Chicago Rap Star Chu is "Gone" w/ Jazze Pha & Too $hort

Chu recently filmed a video for "Gone" with Too Short and Jazzy Pha.  With a successful video and a single ready to blow the world will soon be checking for this new artist with a positive point of view.  Chu is far from what most people would consider a "conscious" rapper and he's not on the usual commercial vibe.  Chu is a unique individual and he's coming with a sound strictly for the grown folks that understand overcoming adversity through music.  

 Chu is releasing his first project on his own Darkside/Uconn imprint.  I Am Nalon (Nalon Is Me) is the result of the past several years of Nalon & Chu's hard work.  The album features collaborations with major hip hop superstars such as hip hop legend, Scarface, Danny Boy (Tupac Shakur), and of course the hit single "Gone," featuring multiplatinum Bay area player Too Short and production powerhouse Jazzy Pha.  Chu has also put in work on the stage, performing with talented artist like Freeway, Bow Wow, Trina and Rick Ross.  

Nalon is the reason that Chu originally got into the music scene in the first place.  After returning home from an incarceration Chu decided to turn his life around by supporting his good friend Nalon in the studio with equipment, a place to write, produce and record music.  Unfortunately Nalon's bright light was cut short when he died in a car accident earlier this year.  Then before Chu could get a chance to fully recover another one of his close friends and the group's producer was fatally shot and stabbed in a robbery at the Darkside/Uconn studios.  However Chu refused to let those events stop him and he decided to release the material that he and Nalon recorded for his new album.

Jesus "Chu" Fuentes is more than just a typical rap artist.  For him music is an ever powerful force that has changed his life completely.  This is the story of Chu, an ambitious, young man who started out struggling and fought his way to the top with talent, handwork and hip hop.  So please take a moment to listen to "Gone" a tribute, a testament to friendship and a certified hit single!
