Supported by Jay-Z’s golden girl, the delectable Rita Ora over at Notting Hill Arts Club a couple of weeks back, Chiddy attracted throngs of fans desperately queuing around the block to see the lads in action. Owning international stages with their infectious tunes, mad banter and heavy flow Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege and Noah “Xaphoon Jones” Beresin underlay each track’s raps with beats borrowed from the unusual likes of Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Passion Pit, MGMT and Yelle. Mates with Sean (the Big one), Tinie and Mac Miller, Chiddy and Noah only hang with MCs held in the highest esteem. As they adventured through Ladbrooke Grove, i-D online tracked down the fast-chatting chaps for an exclusive session.
