You Rate It: Brooklyn Rap Great Chip Fu Hits Us With “Tear Gas” Words by Jesse Serwer— Chip Fu, hip-hop heads over 30 may recall, was the featured MC in Fu-Schnickens, the Brooklyn trio known for lighthearted rap tunes like “La Schmoove” (with A Tribe Called Quest’s Phife) and “What’s Up Doc,” the MC debut of one Shaquille O’ Neal. With a super speedy rhyme style just as influenced by the fast chat of U.K. dancehall as by, say, Big Daddy Kane, the one-time Guinness world record holder was one of the MCs at the forefront of melding reggae and hip-hop, on tracks like the Fu-Schnickens version of “Ring the Alarm.” It’s not surprising then that the MC has returned from the realm of “where are they now” with a full-on reggae alias, named Jungle Rock Jr. Both Chip (who recently visited us as a guest on the LargeUp Sessions radio show) and Jungle Rock show up on Stop Playin Vol. 2, a new mixtape you can download from our most recent edition of Mixtape Mondays. From that mixtape, a preview of the East Flatbush native’s upcoming solo debut, War Paint, comes “Tear Gas,” which meets reggae and rap halfway with some tuff (and, of course, fast) deejaying over a triumphant, drum-and-horns driven hip-hop beat. Watch the video below, tell us what you think in the comments section and look out for our upcoming LargeUp TV episode with Chip. reggie this is what im talking about !! i love the fact that he can switch up..he did a song called “ridiculous” on some hip hop shit ..now he has this!! before this was ” love mi sensi”…i think he is one emcee that is slept on but how can you go wrong with and emcee that can , rap, chat , sing jay, and straight up sing!!..this half trini half bajan emcee is the truth! period. buck tooth i wonder what he likes best. rapping or doing reggae?
