EXCLUSIVE! Chiddy Bang MC waxes lyrical about Nas and 2 Chainz
Hip hop fans, get ready – Chiddy Bang are bringing their addictively colourful beats and epic freestyle rhymes Down Under as part of the inaugural Movement festival this April!
And while it’s a given that fans of the ‘Opposite of Adults’ stars are chomping at the bit to catch the duo on Aussie soil yet again, it seems MC Chidera ‘Chiddy’ Anamege is also counting down the days until he gets to witness hip hop stars Nas and 2 Chainz in action too!
“Nas is obviously a hip hop legend and everybody knows about ‘Illmatic,’” the freestyle genius told MTV.com.au in an interview today.
“The track he did with Lauren Hill – ‘If I Ruled the World’ – is one of my favourite songs of all time so I can’t wait to see him perform that.”
But it seems that 2 Chainz is the rapper at the top of Chiddy’s ‘must-see’ list when he heads out on tour next month!
“I’ve been a 2 Chainz fan for quite a while, like before the massive blow-up that he’s had, you know what I’m saying?” he declared.
“[I’m] sort of an undercover fan of him, so it’s going to be great for me to see him perform.”
And from the looks of things, we can probably expect to see Chiddy right up in the thick of it, belting out the lyrics to the majority of the rapper’s tracks.
“I’ll probably know material that like, nobody there knows, but it’s ok because that’s the beauty of this,” he revealed.
“Artists blow up, the fans that are there supporting, they’re going to support, but then there’s a new base, and a new base comes in and they know all the popular songs but do they know the skit from the first mix-tape?”
But despite being such a huge fan of both artists, Movement festival will be the first time he has toured with either act.
“I’ve not toured with Nas, I’ve not toured with 2 Chainz, but we’re going on tour, we’re doin’ it!” dished Chiddy.
“Movement festival, it’s going down, I’m comin’! Tell your Grandpa, tell your mum, tell your sister, we’re going in!”
Live Nation and Niche Productions regret to advise that it has become necessary to cancel the inaugural Movement Festival, which was scheduled to take place in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth next week.
