We are now halfway into the first half of The Chi season 6, part one. In the series’ fourth and latest episode, there’s a focus on the mental health of the people around Victor, specifically the men in his close circle. Victor has made mental health in his community the focus of his term as city councilman and he begins with checking in on Shaad, Emmett, Darnell, Marcus, Quincy, and Jamal. Tiffany and Rob make progress on their marijuana business goals and Douda finds himself in a tough position as a result of a recent killing.
The events mentioned above in the fourth episode of Showtime’s The Chi season six, titled “ReUp,” are soundtracked by songs that help to accentuate the emotions behind each scene. You can find a list of them below and details about the scenes the records played behind.
