Talk about a blast from the past. Back when blogs were the go-to music discovery platform, Chiddy Bang – made up of rapper Chiddy and producer Xaphoon Jones – were about as an iconic up-and-coming (frat)rap duo as one could imagine.
Classics like “Opposite of Adults” sampling MGMT’s “Kids” and “Truth” taking on Passion Pit were everyone’s favorites circa 2010.
Things seemed to be heating up for them come 2012, when they released their album Breakfast , but shortly after they disappeared when they broke up in 2013.
Xaphoon Jones continued his production career as Noah Breakfast, working on a number of major records, but it’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Chiddy.
Fast forward to 2017, more than half a decade after they made their first big splash, rapper Chiddy returns to the game with his comeback single, “Full Speed Ahead.” Production on this one is handled by Paul Couture.
