Short Fuze has released a gripping look into his every day life living with cerebral palsy. The self shot and directed video follows Fuze through the tedium of his work from home lifestyle where every movement comes with some level of thought and preparation. It’s a bold, brave and original look behind the curtain of Short Fuze’s The Chronic (Pain). Edited beautifully by Samurai Banana, it is now streaming on the Uncommon Records Youtube channel.

Uncommon Records has released the first single from Short Fuze’s upcoming LP, The Painkiller Boutique today. Me and My Demons is produced by Dr. Khil and is the first single from an album that is primarily produced by Khil along with some additional production from Uncommon Nasa, Bloodmoney Perez and Messiah Musik. Fellow Chicago emcees Defcee and Collosoul Structure (of Jyroscope), as well as Uncommon Nasa, join the record for cameos. 

Be sure to listen and follow Short Fuze on Spotify in order to be alerted of the next single and the album drop in October. Pre-Orders for the CD and Digital release will be along soon.


We are finally here! Guillotine Crowns’ dynamic debut, Hills to Die On, has arrived. Short Fuze and Uncommon Nasa move officially into an era of collaboration as a group/duo. As with their previous work together, Nasa will be providing all of the production, but this time fully participates on the mic as well. Over time Nasa and Fuze were able to build thematic songs over aggressive and innovative production, ranging from inventive boasting to weighted activism. The only thing traditional about this album is that we feel it’s best you hear it AS AN ALBUM. It lays out an evolving pace, ending in a statement baring crescendo. 

They aren’t alone, joined by Chicago’s Jyroscope and SKECH185 as well as Uncommon vets, Tracy Jones, Duke01, Digdug (co-produced a track) and our recently passed and always remembered friend, Gajah. 

The album is available now on all digital streaming services as well as on Bandcamp. We are currently shipping CDs (on both Bandcamp and our Webshop) and taking pre-orders for limited edition Red Splatter vinyl (which will ship in the Fall while they last). 

Don’t forget to follow Guillotine Crowns on Spotify and Instagram and help spread the word. Without you, there is no us. Click the image to purchase.
