Biography

The notion of "traditional hip hop" has changed forever. Whether you're talking about genre bending projects from superstars like Kanye West and Lil Wayne or surprising debuts from new artists like Kid Cudi and Drake, hip hop has never had a more exciting, expressive moment. If hip hop is reaching a tipping point, and its followers are expanding their horizons, its Chiddy Bang ... Read more in Amazon's Chiddy Bang Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the Electro-inspired Hip Hop duo comprised of rapper Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege and producer Noah "Xaphoon Jones" Bersin. Due to an extensive 18 month development plan, Chiddy Bang are now an established entity with national brands (Taco Bell, Jeep), a major touring draw (200 dates across 5 continents), and emerging video trailblazers. 2011 was an incredible year for Chiddy Bang. Their breakout single "Opposite of Adults" surpassed sales of 500,000 and was certified gold by the R.I.A.A in August. The duo spent the majority of the year on the road and played festivals around the globe including Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Bamboozle, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

There are almost too many conflicting elements within Breakfast, the 14-track debut from Philadelphia hip-hop band Chiddy Bang, to keep track of. For starters, the band - producer Noah Beresin and emcee Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege - are on both I.R.S. Records and Virgin Records. (A little indie and biggie major.) The Chiddy's are both roots-y hip-hop and modern pop; uber stylish young dudes yet owners of eyesore cover art. Noah is white, geeky and reserved and Chiddy is black, hip and boisterous. The lyrics are simultaneously underground-friendly and painfully cheesy in a sugar-pop sort of way. Corny radio-ready hooks do the twist with some seriously legit verses and boom-bap drum programming takes turns keeping time with already-dated keyboard taps. Beautiful samples and loops are used throughout the record, only to be torn down by forgettable R&B hooks belted by dime-a-dozen female vocalists - all whom seem to be dead set on overdoing it. Beresin's production style somehow reminds of both classic-era De La Soul and a forgotten babe-core group called LFO (not the English IDM producer but, rather, the pop-rap boy group responsible for "Summer Girls"). And, of course, Chiddy Bang are known for sampling Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, MGMT and other makers of hip LPs, yet seem to have no interest in making a tight, cohesive, credible record of their own. Needless to say, Breakfast is a feast of contradictions. And one hell of an interesting listen.

Without a doubt, Beresin and Chiddy are pros at their crafts. Beresin could, I believe, produce a collection of beats as good as anyone out there if he had a little guidance, less interest in getting on the radio and a better editor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pow! February 28, 2012
By LZ
Format:Audio CD
The sound of Chiddy Bang comes right out for all to see. This is pop, rock, rap with wonderfully creative melodies and power. I love Out to Space and Talking to Myself; these beautiful songs make me crave a replay and Chiddy's flow is magnetic and an absolutely perfect balance to Xaphoon's beats. I love knowing VV Brown is in the studio during the recording of Happening, after Chiddy calls out a trademark intro she chimes in with her own, "VV Brown!" and actually sings with Chiddy toward the end.
Of course the album includes previously released favorites: Ray Charles, Mind Your Manners and Baby Roulette (which features Train although not mentioned) all exceptional singles breaking new ground in hip hop. My tastes are in The New Pornographers, Kanye West, The Flaming Lips, Sufjan Stevens, Portishead, and other well crafted pop so if you love melody and open to taking chances have your Breakfast today. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars They set the bar high for the next one. February 28, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Chiddy Bang, the alternative hip-hop group made up of Chiddy the rapper and Xaphoon Jones the producer. I pre-ordered the album on their website and I received it in the mail last week. Of their three mixtapes "Air Swell", "Peanut Butter & Swelly", and "The Swelly Express", I think "Breakfast" is the weakest of the bunch. I also prefer to listen to their EP "The Preview" over this. I don't think this is a bad album, I just think the others are just that much better. With that being said, my favorite songs on the album are "Breakfast", "Handclaps & Guitars", "Mind Your Manners", "Run It Back", "Out 2 Space", "Whatever We Want", "Talking To Myself", and "4th Quarter".The song "Baby Roulette" is already on their mixtape "Peanut Butter & Swelly". I think this is a great first album for them, I just expected a classic.

This is a badass record. These two dudes can make some good beats and rhymes. Great for non-violent, intelligent rap music.

I stumbled upon this dynamic due while checking out an episode of Darryl Hall's House (Hall & Oates fame) on the cable channel Palladium. They are a nice mix of B.O.B. and Kid Cudi meets N.E.R.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album from Chiddy Bang December 31, 2012
By Ron
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was a little worried about the release of this album, Chiddy Bang had delivered such an amazing first album, that I was sure this might have been a let down. I'm really happy to say that my worries were unfounded. Chiddy Bang for the uninitiated delivers an energetic fusion of hip-hop, electronic, and well pop that just comes off as fresh. There's several tracks of this album that are favorites, but like their last album I'm happy to report I can listen through the entire album without changing tracks, and I find that hard to do with most artists I listen to. If you're looking for something different and something fresh, I think you can't go wrong with this album.

Pros:
Another solid album which you can listen through the entire album without skipping tracks

Cons:
-none-

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah get it if you like them
Love these dudes. Got some good content. Not like this bloated botty and bottle music you hear now all over. Guess I am getting old. My taste is more grounded now a days.

Clean?
I want to pre-order it too, but I don't want the clean version! The album above has the parental advisory logo on it, but the samples are "clean". Somebody better shed some light on this.
