Following our post on Wednesday about Chiddy Bang releasing their debut album in the states we were absolutely buzzing to find our copy of ‘Breakfast’ in the HTF inbox, this album has been much anticipated since Summer 2011 when we found out the release had been brought back, but finally it’s with us! And that’s all that matters.
The album kicks off with a beautiful instrumental introduction then flows straight into ‘Breakfast’. ‘Breakfast’ is very much your stereotypical hip-hop track, with women, haters and ‘serving up breakfast‘ being the main focus points.
My favourite track on the album comes up next and is titled ‘Mind Your Manners’ this track was the first from the album to be released as a single in the US and features samples from Swedish pop band, Icona Pop. This kind of track is typically expected of Chiddy Bang, catchy, clever lyrics and electronic background complete the track which should prove popular in the playground.
Next up is Chiddy Bang’s second single from the album – ‘Ray Charles’, this track pays homage to the late Ray Charles who is credited as the first artist to blend Rock ‘n’ Roll with R&B, this track features a soul backing with bouncy beats and lyrics that is very much the style of Chiddy Bang.
‘Baby Roulette’ is another track that we think will really take off, the theme is sex but with a twist, it emphasises the importance of wearing protection. With lines such as ‘Got to wear a glove if we’re gonna’ make love‘ this track is catchy and educational as well as entertaining.
Chiddy Bang have really stuck to their own style in their debut album which will please long-time fans, there’s no way they’re going to be accused of selling out on this album.
All-in-all Breakfast is a great album that is a must for anyone that has a love for alternative hip-hop, we recommend this album highly and at just £7.99 from Play.com for a signed copy you can’t really go wrong!
