[Hip-Hop] Chiddy Bang – HeartBeat (Feat. Two Guyz)

HeartBeat (feat. Two Guyz)

Lost in the shuffle of excellent releases last week was this spectacular new single from Philly’s Chiddy Bang. “Heartbeat” is just the second song we’ve heard from Chiddy’s upcoming Baggage Claim mixtape so far. The track is instantly mesmerizing, with deep synths and pulsing percussion that blend together in harmony to produce the perfect electronic hip-hop soundscape for Chiddy to flex his rhymes over. Two Guyz also play a crucial part as well, breathing life into the song through an ethereal chorus. Although we haven’t heard much yet, judging from his history, we’d have to say Chiddy Bang has some big things planned for 2013, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the mixtape when it finally drops.

Breathe (Prod. by Yuri Beat$)

Where was this one when we put together our recent Mega Summer Hip-Hop Playlist? After taking some time to “Breathe,” Chiddy Bang returns to the scene with this airy new feel-good single, just in time for the end of summer. Despite its laidback vibes, “Breathe” is meant to appeal to the working man, who among all the stresses that can consume him at anytime just needs to step back at some point, take a deep breath and reflect. This is just the first of what we presume to be many other excellent offerings from Chiddy Bang’s upcoming mixtape, Baggage Claim, out later this year.

Hoodie Allen – Crew Cuts (Free Album Download + Stream)

After building up an enourmous amount of hype, releasing 2 official videos for tracks ‘Cake Boy‘ and his collaboration with Chiddy, Hoodie Allen finally releases his free mixtape Crew Cuts.

Crew Cuts is definitely his most diverse mixtape to do date, including features from Chiddy Bang, Chance The Rapper, Shwayze, G-Eazy, Skizzy Mars & OCD along with production from !llmind, Jared Evan, RJF and Sap. You can stream all the songs below as well as download the album in its entirety here.

With Crew Cuts, I had two big goals in mind—1. I wanted to challenge myself to try new things and work with new people. I have grown up a lot in this past year and I wanted the music to reflect those experiences. It is easy to “play it safe” as an artist, but I think in order for your fans to grow with you, you can’t be afraid to evolve and be better. 2. I wanted to collaborate with my amazingly talented friends and make a free project that sounds and feels like a debut album.

Hoodie Explains:

I wanted to write a track that mixed a classic doo-wop vibe with the more upbeat hip-hop style that my fans have come to love

[Hip-Hop] Chiddy Bang – Paper & Plastic

The Philly-based duo, Chiddy Bang, team up with Converse for a pretty awesome and swagged-out track. As usual, Xaphoon Jones is on point incorporating the perfect amount of electro sounds in his production. Chiddy employs a flow popularized by the likes of Juicy J and 2 Chainz, which has recently become a staple in hip-hop. While a bit corny at times, the style is delivered perfectly by the rapping half of the group, who finds a way to put his own spin on it still expressing his individuality as an artist. A great record to turn up and grind to.
