[AUDIO] Kokayi - “Chanticleer” - Produced By Kokayi
Capping off the year with another free download from Robots & Dinosaurs, the Grammy-nominated jack-of-all-trades is proud to release “Chanticleer.” The self-produced song shows off Kokayi’s ability to blend a variety of musical styles to create a unique and infectious beat. Breaking away from the norm, Kokayi’s main inspiration for “Chanticleer” derives from the lack of originality in art.
“Be original and break out of the boxes; stay way from the margins and labels that people try to apply to you or your art,” says Kokayi, and while it’s a topic that’s been explored before, Kokayi’s original approach, both lyrically and musically, breathes life into the topic. Enlisting his own children for the chorus while using the verses to spit witticisms, with lines like, “You try to box me Rocky/ I May Weather storms, golden boy cocky,” this is full of WIN!
If you haven’t copped Robots N Dinosaurs yet, you’re missing one of the best albums of 2010.
