ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: KIDZ IN THE HALL

These guys have been around for a few years, but as long as we are discussing Ivy League emcees, they are a shoe-in for a mention. Since graduating from University of Pennsylvania several years ago, rapper Naledge and producer Double-O have made a name for themselves touring with some of the biggest names out there, as well as putting out some solid remixes of old school favorites.

One song that’s a must-listen is “’06 Till (Wheelz Fall Off),” a souped-up take on Souls of Mischief classic “’93 ‘till Infinity.” The spaced-out production of the original is still there, and Naledge’s practiced, articulate flow is a fresh change-up from how the beat is usually approached.
