Bang Bang Bang

I love me a good hip hip, yes I do.

Now, now. I know some of you may be complaining "Prez, hip hop? Really?" Chiddy Bang is a different: this Philly-based rap duo consisting of Proto and Xaphoon Jones prides themselves for spilling good rhyme (Proto) on some of the best back-beats I've ever heard (that's where Xaphoon comes in). Have some respect, but even if you don't, you'll love Chiddy Bang.

Since I love these guys so much, and they're only starting to climb the musical ladder into the cloud that is mainstream music (eugh), I am not going to post download links for the following tracks.

Their new album (shown above) is not yet available on iTunes and, to be honest, I don't exactly know where you can purchase it now, but I'll keep you all posted. For now, just enjoy :) If you're able to track down a download link (if it's free and legal), or a place to buy the CD, let me know in the comments.

Name the samples, too. You'd be surprised - I bet this kid reads ilictronix :P

Chiddy Bang - All Things Go

Chiddy Bang - Get Up In The Morning

Chiddy Bang - Never

Chiddy Bang - Fresh Like Us

Chiddy Bang - The Opposite of Adults (KIDS) [iTunes]

Enjoy, and please support the new artists, they need the money more than you do,

Its good, definitely a lot better than a lot of the rap and hip-hop out there today. I cant say i really love it either, as im not a fan of hip-hop or rap. Still, rather hear this then mainstream. :P

Guys that sample Expialidocious can only make good things.

I'm not a really hip hop type of guy, but this is fuckin catchy (in the good way, not in the popopopopokerfacetrololol way).

Thanks prez, never heard of them before, and that's a shame.

A few things, it is not their new album. It was released in October 2009 for FREE. I think the download link has expired. They have also released another "mini-mixtape" last month. That was also free, and i downloaded it from their myspace ( at the bottom.

what about Truth? that is one incredible track!

I don't like truth :P

And @anon, I know. But the links were removed and I can't find a source anywhere, so I'd rather avoid posting download links in case they're in the midst of a deal or something.

Also, this is their most recent album, so yes... "new" applies.

Pretty slick beats. Good divergent from the normal stuff. Keep up the flow.

@ prez.. it's technically not an album, it is a mixtape. and it is not their most recent. Air Swell is their most recent.

Real Good. I was afraid of you, but you pleased me. :D

Expialidocious sample is abysmal. I'm sorry, but... no. I can't approve of that sample. No. Just... no. That song is holy ground.

You hear Chiddy's performance at KISS in Cleveland last week? Played Dream Chasin and debuted a new song...
