Chiddy Bang ft. The Knocks - When You’ve Got Music

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Xaphoon Jones
Album:
Peanut Butter & Swelly

Even after breaking the Guinness World Record for Longest Freestyle with an epic, 9-hour-plus rhyme session – can I get a round of applause, by the way? – Philly flame-spitter Chiddy Bang‘s lyrical well is far from dry. If you need proof (Oh, ye of little faith!) then When You’ve Got Music should be just the thing to allay your doubts. The latest leak off Chiddy and production partner Xaphoon Jones’ Friday mixtape release, this head-nodding selection finds the latter looking to The Knocks for inspiration, punching up the UK electronic duo’s soulfully catchy cut of the same name with bass-booming percussion and sizzling synths. Chiddy comes with rhymes to match his partner’s leisurely yet driving backdrop; in between braggadocious punchlines (“Sonically they at the tail and I’m a hedgehog”), the emcee looks back on the days when he was the only one believing in himself: “Back in the day with no beats I would have no room to spaz… If I told ‘em that I spit they were soon to laugh.” No doubt about it; Chiddy Bang have come a long way. Those who want to accompany the duo on the next leg of their journey can do so on the 28th, when their Peanut Butter & Swelly street album hits the ‘net.
