Hoodie Allen – Fame Is For Assholes ft. Chiddy + Cake Boy

Both of these tracks showed up on my SoundCloud feed yesterday so why not give them in a combo post. Hoodie Allen is getting ready to hit the road and is also releasing a mixtape called Crew Cuts tomorrow. The Opposite of Adults-esque video for the feel-good party track Fame is For Assholes is absolutely awesome and marks the first new verse from Chiddy that we’ve gotten in a long minute. The real gem in this one is his track Cake Boy which definitely gives me a HUGE new level of respect for this guys lyricism. The flow is on point and it’s a huge plus that he ties the whole track together with the cake theme rather than just throwing together a collection of punch lines over the beat and calling it a banger.

Hip-Hop – Chiddy Bang – Zeros (New Free Song)

These guys are just ridiculous. Not only is their debut album holding steady at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop music charts but they just keep giving. Xaphoon released this one through his twitter as a thank you to his fans and the one and only Team Swelly (we pretty much amazing). I’m pretty sure that they made the right decision keeping this off the album but almost anything the two touch turns to gold in my eyes so take a listen and enjoy some dessert after you buy Breakfast on iTunes here!

Hip-Hop – Chiddy Bang – Grab a Plate

I’m not sure this day could get much better but before I start rambling let me get to business. Now officially only 10 measly days away from releasing their major label debut album Breakfast, Chiddy and Xaph are kind enough to continue to dish out appetizers to get us ready. This one, called Grab a Plate, is a real laid back tune where Chiddy takes the lead role and absolutely demolishes the beat. His delivery is flawless and if this is just a sampling of what didn’t make the cut of the album the sky’s the limit for this release.

Hip-Hop – Chiddy Bang – Extra Well ft. Chip tha Ripper/Possible Special Binghamton University Promo


I can’t begin to explain how excited I am for Chiddy Bang’s major label debut Breakfast on February 28th in the US and they gave us another track off of the Grab a Plate prealbum mixtape called Extra Well with the help of Chip tha Ripper. Originally thought to be an actual mixtape release, Xaphoon Jones tweeted that the mixtape would come in bits and pieces leading up to the album release and this appetizer is hittin the spot. Unbelievable production as usual, Mr. Jones just churns out certified platinum beats like its clockwork and Chiddy brings his usual delivery of clever rhymes and wordplay. I’ve started picking up listening to Chip tha Ripper and if the rest of his work is anything like this I’m sure to be on board. Don’t forget to preorder the album on iTunes here. Keep it swelly and as always
