Chiddy Bang's single "Opposite of Adults" has been around for a few months now but it's just starting to catch fire on the radio.  It was officially released in the US back in April but the video has been around since February.  The YouTube video already has 5+ million views which is pretty impressive for a song that is still fairly new to most listeners.  The song actually caught on quicker in the UK when it was officially released there in February and made it all the way up to #8 on the singles charts.

The craziest part about the song is that it was originally released under the title "Kids" back in April of 2009.  It's interesting to see a song linger around for that long and then finally catch on once enough people hear it.  I guess that goes to prove that good music will eventually be heard by the masses if you have enough patience.  

It's cool to see that these dudes are getting some recognition state side with their unique sound that meshes Hip Hop and laid back Rock with samples of bands such as Radiohead and MGMT.  Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege is the dude who raps and Xaphoon Jones is the one making those dope beats.  I think they are bringing something new to the table which is great for Hip Hop.  I am addicted to "Opposites of Adults" right now and hope it doesn't get killed by radio play.  I can't get enough of this video either.  You can't go wrong with the big headed style.  They were biting Ludacris' video for "Rollout" a little bit but I will let it slide since their video came out so good:

Chiddy Bang's other song "Truth" is pretty solid too.  I have a feeling we will be hearing a lot more from this duo.  It sounds like their first official album Here We Go will drop in August.
