Genre bending, electro-hip hop duo Chiddy Bang, comprised of rapper Chidera â€œChiddyâ€ Anamege and producer Noah â€œXaphoon Jonesâ€ Bersin, have premiered their new single â€œMind Your Manners.” “Mind Your Manners,” the first single from the group’s eagerly anticipated debut album, Breakfast, will be available on iTunes July 17th with the full length album dropping in-stores and online July 19th.
Swiftly becoming one of the most buzzed about duos, Chiddy Bangâ€™s music continues to earn positive press and secure several hundred thousand downloads, thanks to a flair for songwriting and creative production and use of unexpected samples, as evidenced with â€œMind Your Mannersâ€, an infectious party jam, produced by Xaphoon Jones and featuring samples from Swedish indie pop duo Iconapop.
The high energy song was first performed for a live audience after Chiddy Bang broke not one but two Guinness Book of World Records. On April 29th, while live streamed during MTVâ€™s Online Music Awards, Chiddy Bang member Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege set the Guinness World Records title for the Longest Freestyle Rap while also simultaneously breaking the Longest Marathon Rapping record. The young MC, utilizing suggested topics tweeted in by fans across the globe, rapped continuously for 9 hours, 18 minutes and 22 seconds, never breaking for more than three seconds, in order to break the previous record held by M-80. The OMA stream during Chiddyâ€™s record breaking attempt ultimately became the most watched live stream in MTV.com history, surpassing VMA and MTV Movie Award coverage.
Immediately upon conclusion of the record breaking attempt, while still being streamed live on MTV, Chiddy joined Xaphoon on stage in front of a crowd of several thousand for a blistering performance of â€œMind Your Mannersâ€, making it not only the first time that fans had ever heard the single, but also the first time in which the single had ever been broadcast live.
Chiddy Bang, who recently performed at Bonnaroo as well as on the main stage of Bamboozle alongside Lil Wayne as well as the rap stage alongside Big Sean and XV, will perform at several international festivals this summer including Wakestock and V Festival before they gear up for a Headline run with Cool Kids in September.
