When it comes to Chicago, Kanye is not the only producer out here making consistent heat. Taiwo & Kehinde Hassan are Chicago born but of Nigerian descent who are blood brothers who make up the production duo Christian Rich. If you are not familiar with the name sure you will know the siblings’ resume. They have hits they created for Drake’s ‘Nothing Was The Same’, J.Coles ‘Born Sinner’, Childish Gambino’s ‘Because The Internet’ and Earl Sweatshirt’s ‘Doris’. Recently they were invited to play a live set in LA for Mixmag Lab that consisted of Hip Hop, House, Dance and Electronic music during the mix. During their set they brought out current XXL freshman and West Coast emcee Vince Staples who is making a lot of noise right now. He performs on a new track that the duo produced with Vince rapping on it.
Brooklyn based duo Denitia and Sene released their video for “Divided” – the soulful earful we posted on here. Visuals for “Divided” were directed by Joel Kefali, who was also responsible for Lorde’s “Tennis Courts” and “Royals” videos. Nice work.
There’s a period in the title. Artists… we left it there.
Fresh off of his critically acclaimed mixtape “The Great Debater,” Skyzoo celebrates 2/14/2012 with a song strictly for his female audience. After success with numerous “for the ladies” jams such as “Easy To Fly,” “#AllAboutThat”, and “Expensive Habits,” Sky has whipped up “#Anxious” for Valentine’s Day 2012. The track features vocals by Cali’s own Kay Cola (Talib Kweli, Ne-Yo, etc) and produced by Christian Rich (N.E.R.D., Pusha T., GLC, etc). When you download the track for you will receive the “I Heart Skyzoo” tee shirt the model is wearing on the cover. (I’d bet $100 that I know who that model is with those lips & by the way she’s filing out the T-shirt. Hahaa). Quantities are limited (only 100), and once they are gone they are gone for good!
