“There is a very obvious reason why I came up with the term #USSIE…30 years, 104 tours, 103 countries in music and 25 years on the lecture circuit,” Chuck D says. “Yes, I take a lot of pictures and now smartphone pics have replaced the autograph. I take many of them self shot. People say 'Oh, a selfie,' and I correct them by saying two or more people is an ‘Ussie.’” Chuck D continues, as in the words to the infectious song ‘#USSIE’ by Chuck D’s SPITdigital recording artist Haley And Us, “Ussie, ussie not a selfie…come on let’s take an Ussie!” (

The ‘Chuck D Ussie Stick’ is based on the ‘’s Wired’ selfie stick model, which is compatible with most handheld devices including iOS 5.1+, and Android 4.3+ devices.
