The notion of “traditional hip hop” has changed forever. Whether you’re talking about genre bending projects from superstars like Kanye and Lil Wayne or new artists like Kid Cudi, hip-hop has reached a tipping point and its followers are expanding their horizons. Chiddy Bang is a Philly based duo comprised of Chiddy (Proto,19, MC) and Xaphoon Jones (Noah, 19, DJ/producer) who combine elements of indie and electronica with some good ole fashioned “spitting”. The result has been described by some bloggers as a “hipsters wet dream”, but Chiddy Bang prefers to think of themselves as “kings of the basement party jam”.
