The Chiddy Bang Theory.

Chiddy Bang – Under the Sheets. From Air Swell mixtape.

We’ve got a good feeling about these two … and you’ll be quick to hop on the same page.

The duo was picked as mtvU’s Freshmen of the Week a couple of weeks back for their video below (after the jump). Finally. A refreshing take on one of the most overly-remixed songs of 2009, right?

Dubbed “the hipster’s wet dream,” Chiddy Bang is comprised of Chidera “Proto” Anamege (Chiddy) and Xaphoon Jones. It’s important to note that while we’re drawn to the Philly-based group for its lyricism, the production is just as much of a draw.

Chiddy Bang’s another prime example of how hip hop is becoming increasingly educated. Proto and Xaphoon first met at Drexel and have been churning out whispering eye-wetting tracks since.

Misters Anamege and Jones recently released their mixtape Air Swell (which was exclusively dropped in the UK). Download it HERE.

Word has it that the tracks were recorded as the two traveled back and forth from our crumpet-harboring neighbor island across the pond.

If nothing else, give them a chance as these two are probably the only reason Paul McCartney’s song “Ebony & Ivory” is still relevant today.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
