I’ve been a fan of The Kickdrums since I first heard their David Axelrod flipping “Just A Game” in 2009. But Fitts & Tilla have been on their grind a lot longer than that and their discography is crazy. They’ve produced for 50 Cent, Chamillionaire, Joell Ortiz, Little Brother, Ray Cash, Ben Harper, and Good Charlotte, to name a handful of their credits.
On Feb 21st, 2011, I’m dropping their ‘Something’s Gotta Give” EP on 11 Inch Records. (It includes remixes by Kutcorners, Sammy Bananas, Emynd, Sticky Noodles, Audience, and Skinny Friedman.) But first! It’s time for a look back at some of my favorite of their jams. With appearances by the RZA, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Joell Ortiz, Wale, Young Chris, and Peter Bjorn & John, I give you The Kickdrums at their finest.
