[Listen] Chiddy Bang - "Ray Charles"

Being high and writing songs isn't anything new, with that in mind Chiddy Bang have just added another red eyed track to their back catalogue with a homage titled "Ray Charles". It's to feature on their upcoming Breakfast and you can stream it below courtesy of Rolling Stone. Here's what Chiddy had to say about it:

“The song actually started out as a joke when my brother, Cheeseburger Don, got so high he fell asleep in the studio with his sunglasses on. I looked over and he reminded me of Ray Charles, probably because I was high, too. I started freestyling about him and we laid it down right there.”

[Interview] Chiddy Bang's Noah Beresin and Chidera Anamege Talk 'Breakfast,' Guinness World Records, and Becoming a Farmer in the U.K.

The first time I heard hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang, I was in my first year at university. The combination of Noah 'Xaphoon Jones' Beresin's fantastic production and crisp beats and Chidera 'Chiddy' Anamege's awesome raps and freestyles was just too good. The next thing I knew, I was obsessed, and The Swelly Life mixtape soon took over my eardrums. With tracks such as "Opposite of Adults (KIDS)," "Truth," "Silver Screen," "Dream Chasin'" and so many more, the pair quickly displayed their ability to take samples from music of the past and today, add some modern flavour to it and combine it with Chiddy's slicks raps in order to give the listener a truly unique take on the hip-hop genre.

While the duo have only been making music together for the better part of three years, that time has been nothing but good to them. From their beginnings at Philadelphia's Drexel University, to the blogosphere bringing them into the spotlight, to the release of multiple, praised mixtapes, and their sudden rise to fame over the past year, Chiddy Bang have shown that they not only have what it takes to make it big in the music industry, but to do something entirely unique while they're at it.

While Chiddy Bang's fanbase continues to grow, the pair are continuously giving their loyal listeners a constant stream of free music, whether it's The Swelly Life mixtape, the Air Swell mixtape, Peanut Butter and Swelly, or The Preview EP. With the (possible) Fall release of their debut album Breakfast fast approaching, there couldn't be a better time to talk to the duo about all things Chiddy Bang. Courtesy of Taco Bell and their Feed the Beat program, I had the chance to chat with Noah and Chiddy via telephone as the two landed back on the East Coast.

[Watch] Chiddy Bang - "I Can't Stop (Freestyle)" (Video)

If Chiddy Bang is known for anything, it's Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege's amazing freestyling and Noah "Xaphoon Jones" Beresin's awesome sampling, and the track "I Can't Stop (Freestyle)" has both of those in full force. This time around, Xaphoon decided to throw some dubstep into the mix by sampling Flux Pavilion. Add to that some sweet freestyle courtesy of Chiddy, and you have one awesome track. The video also features some great visuals, showing the duo in the midst of an epilepsy-inducing concert throwing down the best of their skills. You can check out the video for yourself in the player above.
