BRINGING NEW TWIST TO FU-SCHNICKENS’ 

 “TRUE FUSCHNICK”


DEBUT SINGLE OFF OF 
SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT’S FORTHCOMING EP
THE REPLAY: A REMIX COLLECTION


VIA LEGACY RECORDINGS
SPOTLIGHTING UP-AND-COMING ARTISTS PAYING HOMAGE TO CLASSIC HIP HOP RECORDS 


GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist BEAM releases the hard-hitting track “FU” via Legacy Recordings (listenHERE) , the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, and accompanying music video via Epic Records (watch HERE). Bringing a fresh spin to the Fu-Schnickens’ classic record “True Fuschnick,” the track is the debut single off of the EP,  The Replay: A Remix Collection, which will be released in early 2024. In celebration of Hip Hop’s 50th birthday, the 6-track EP will spotlight up-and-coming artists across the Sony Music Entertainment roster paying homage to the classics via cover versions, interpolations and remixes. 


With November marking National Hip Hop History Month, “FU” illustrates how the early sounds of the genre have inspired the new wave of talent. Hailing from Brooklyn, the Fu-Schnicken were known for their high-speed raps and unique rhythm style. Their 1992 debut album Don’t Take It Personal became RIAA Gold-Certified. BEAM has a special connection with the group’s standout track “FU” as his father, Jamaican singer Papa San, influenced the Fu-Schnickens. 


“I fell in love with the song because of the fast rap, which is something my dad did a lot,” said BEAM. “It was one of the first songs I was always listening to after coming to America.”


BEAM brings the track to life with a black-and-white music video. Directed by madebyJAMES, the visual channels the early days of Hip Hop in New York City.
