I guess my prayers have been answered. Scratch that last post, this is what I’ve been waiting for. Chiddy performed this live after 9 hours+ of freestyling but here is a CDQ version for streaming via mTV. Apparently this is part of the Madden ’12 soundtrack as well. mTV + Madden + Taco Bell…Swelly.
Frat bros and Gentlemen of the Northeast (New England to be specific), don’t waste your money on a 4th pair of docksides from Sperry, Sebago, or Timberland. Don some quality loafers with your seersucker shorts and closet of pastels.
Louis Vuitton Yucatan Loafer : $590 for the low cut. $675 for the mids. Chump change.
2 years ago I forecasted big things for Philly duo Chiddy Bang. For avid bloggers and music fiends, Chiddy Bang is a household name or better yet -a dorm room or frat house name. Collectively, other than the Guinness World Record freestyle and the new taco bell commercial, Chiddy Bang has been relatively low key. Their latest mixtape PB & Swelly was a disjointed compilation of songs; mediocre samples from Producer Xaphoon and rather basic lyricism from the wordsmith Chiddy made it difficult to listen to. All this wouldn’t really matter if Chiddy Bang had dropped an album already. Mixtapes are the come up right now but to break the college-student demographic you gotta release a real album.
The Swelly Express is still one of my favorite tapes. This is one of several gems.
“Sail” is the lead single off of Awolnation’s debut album Megalithic Symphony which dropped in mid March. If you’re into Indie/Alternative music, give the album a spin. I’m vibing this single…electro/dubstep meets indie.
Big Sean has been causing a raucous for the past year or so with some quality mixtapes and cameos. Finally Famous is his debut album and it doesn’t disappoint. Solid collaborations, diverse sound, and several gems. Enjoy.
