A few weeks ago, we welcomed New York-based rapper That Kid C-G to The NBS, hyping his first mixtape “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Swellegant” which you can still download here. Today, we feature another of his songs – a swelly, rhymetastic, irresistible track titled “Get In Your Zone.” The song features an eerie childrens-chorus sounding backing track, mixed together with a masterful verse from That Kid C-G, and as an added benefit – a guest verse from Chidera, the frontman of Chiddy Bang. After listening to this collab, it’s impossible not to want to hear more verse-trading in the future, and given their friendship and the success of this song hopefully it will happen again. Enjoy.


Today, Philadelphia upcomer That Kid C-G released his first mixtape “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Swellegant.” Though skeptical at first, there is certainly a great deal of potential to be seen in his first publication. A schoolboy friend of Chiddy Bang’s Proto, That Kid C-G chooses to use the concept of “Swelly” as referenced in much of Chiddy Bang’s recent work. Good business move by this young rapper, attaching yourself to a band of such current success. As for the tape, it’s an overall feel-good work, complete with airy synths and pop-ridden chorus lines to connect verses. Down below is “I Know You Like That,” which presents a confident summer song that is sure to put the joy back into hip-hop. Download the full mixtape here and be sure to listen in on “Fork in the Road” as C-G goes in over the RJD2 classic “Ghostwriter,” as well as “Get In Your Zone.”
