Sasquatch! 2012: Chiddy BangPosted by Melissa Daniels
On a stripped down stage with a mic and a set of drums, Chiddy Bang charged on stage to wake his crowd up with the lead single off his debut album called ”Breakfast.” As if the hypothetical food fuel wasn’t enough, the hip-hop duo from Philidelphia’s frontman Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege literally lit one up, let the smoke fly and got right back in it with “Talking To Myself.”
The main floor was packed with fans, that sang along, threw their arms in their air on command, and really felt the truth to Chiddy Bang’s mantra, “everything high when you livin’ swell,” in his verse from a collaboration he did with Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa called “High.”
And it was with pure ease that Anamege and his counter part on drums, Noah Beresin, got the crowd to chant “I just came to party” during “Handclaps and Guitars” which samples Walk the Moon’s “Quesadilla.”
Before he closed, Chiddy Bang dropped a record called “Out 2 Space” that the duo admittedly never played for an audience before. “I feel like it reflects where we are right now,” Anamege said.
To close it all out, the band played the single that helped launch their careers forward in the beginning, “Opposite of Adults” a remix of MGMT’s “Kids.” With the entire crowd rapping along to every word, it was the perfect way to end that whole “everything’s high when you livin’ swell” thing…
