Fusing a term from his hometown of New York City with experiences from his current Atlanta base, rapper Jeff Chery releases his latest single, “Mixy”. Over hypnotic production by Funkybeat (whose previous collaborations with Jeff include “Three Headed Monster”, “My Town” and “Go”), the track shines the spotlight on the New York term “mixy” — which means to have fun and be in the mix.

The infectious club anthem — whose name has even spawned an increasingly popular drink of Coconut Ciroc, pineapple juice and Sprite in local Atlanta nightspots — will be available for download on iTunes shortly.

“To accompany the conscious message of Jeff Chery’s latest single, The People, which features sound bites of Black Panther co-founder Huey P. Newton, the rapper releases a chilling visual directed by Open Gate Studios.

Filmed at the remains of Atlanta Prison Farm, a facility that operated from 1945 to 1995, the video includes scenes of vagabond rebels ready for battle with the people perpetrating violence against Americans as well as Jeff rapping with a noose around his neck to symbolize the painful past overcome by African-Americans. “I wear it like it’s nothing,” Jeff says of the noose, “because we are past that. I wanted people to view this video and have the images take them to a place that meant something to them.” Interspersed with the Atlanta Prison Farm scenes are images of critical moments in African-American history.
The People appears on Jeff’s upcoming mixtape, Jetset Vagabond, which is due for release on February 19.”
