2011 has been a great year for hip hop so far. And it just got better, because today one of our favourite acts, Chiddy Bang, released their new mixtape for free via iLLRoots.
Chiddy Bang write the type of upbeat hip hop that you can move to. The beats are as much of a star as Chiddy’s rapping, with eclectic 8 bit beats, Happy hardcore samples, mashed up backing music constructed from Motown, Ska, Indie rock and pretty much anything. (It’s actually amazing that more hip hop hasn’t been constructing from Motown samples – the Motown beat is perfect and the choruses work perfectly).
Peanut Butter and Swelly is a mixtape of 15 brand new tracks and features some of their best work to date. They promise full album Breakfast will be their next release. Check out the video trailer below, and get the mixtape for free from iLLRoots here. (Also check out the links to their previous mixtapes below, highly recommended).
