Catch-Up With Chiddy Bang

Directed by: Mike Carson
Produced by: Mike Waxx
Here's a great example of two kids killing the game. We caught up with Xaphoon Jones and Chiddy Bang in Chicago recently while they were in town for Lollapalooza. A group that may or may not be on your radar, Chiddy Bang is one of the dopest and most popping hip-hop/indie acts on the market. Currently headling their Swelly Life Tour with Donnis and XV, the bulk of their stops have been sold out to packed crowds of die hard fans. Signed to UK label Parlophone Records, these two young talents linked up at Drexel University a few years ago and have since been making recognizable music that's brought them to various crowds all over the world. We spoke with the two on how they linked up, their relationship as business partners and friends, as well as the importance of being selective on choosing the appropriate label situation. Their debut album is on the way, with what we were told to expect collaborations with Q-Tip, Damon Albarn, Pharrell and other tastemakers. Keep your eye on these guys, they know what they're doing.
