ActiveChuckss is an acronym meaning Aggressive Changes That Influence Various Ethnicities Communication Hopefully Unifying Communities Kneading Social Services.Formulated in 1999 as ACEntertainent,the parent company of Thugtorious G's(it's @ASCAP affiliate),by Lamonte "DuseM'$"Sims. @DuseM'$ was a troubled youth, birthed to a hustling mother and a gangster father. Although intelligent, Duse M'$ like his father became heavily entrenched in the South Central LA gang sub-culture, joining the notorious Bloods. As a result and to no surprise, he racked up his arrests ,serving time in juvenile hall, camp, and C.Y.A. for assault with a deadly weapon. Frustrated with becoming just another statistic, a black male in a perpetual cycle of incarceration, DuseM'$ sought out another option. It was then he turned to his passion: hip-hop. So DuseM'$ decided to hook up with his OG homie and local hustler, Reggie Cudahay- President of JustAFew Records; Next was to recording his first demo(16tracks)under the pseudonym @Desperado Angelino,and even auditioned for and qualifying for the Budweiser's Best In The West. Discouraged by the stalled progress at Just A Few,as well as a conflict of interest,DuseM'$ returned back to the @Brims and the fastlife of drug dealing,violent crime,mustering enough cash to resume recording music.It was then M'$ really began envisioning @ActiveChuckss.This was also about the time his then girlfriend Lakeysha Andrews became pregnant,at which time DuseM'$ made an honest woman of her,marrying her. Still entrenched in criminal activities, and desiring a better life for his family DuseM'$ made the biggest mistake of his life,resulting in his arrest on February22,2002 for Conspiracy to commit armed bank robbery of California Credit Union in Torrance,Ca. https://www.dailybreeze.com/2002/02/27/redondo-robbery-suspects-elude-police-2-28/amp/ .His dreams of ActiveChuckss came to an abrupt halt when the judge sentenced him to 120 months in federal prison. In January 2011 Duse M'$ was released to a federal halfway house, reawakening his dream of establishing ActiveChuckss as a relevant company in the underground hip-hop scene. DuseM'$ began recording immediately with superproducers @Trak D @LeagueOfStarz and @DTMakeshitz of @SlaphouseProductions resulting in Still I Live the mixtape @datpiff.com. ActiveChuckss also sold thousands out of the trunk of his Lincoln Mark Vlll. ActiveChuckss then partnered with local homeboy Wesley "GNutt"Crunk, and @YardDownmuzikInk assuming the responsibilities as President of marketing and promotions for YDM.
