New York-based (by way of North Carolina) Charlie Smarts & DJ Ill Digitz are gearing up for the debut release, Charlietape. This album is poised to highlight the “NY-to-NC experience”. The production of the LP will feature beats from 9th Wonder, Jansport J, Eric G, and others.
As a teaser to the album, they just dropped a few singles. The latest leak is a track that features witty wordplay courtesy of Charlie and Brooklyn-based Skyzoo. Canada’s Muneshine is the beatsmith behind the horny and drum-filled backbone. The raps of Charlie Smarts & Skyzoo fit the track perfectly, while Digitz provides a funky scratch outro.
Only two tracks have been released as teasers to the full LP, the KLIM-produced “Haters Anonymous” was the first single, peep the video below.
These two artists complement each other with grace. Charlie & Digitz wanted to break a few of Hip Hop’s current stigmas and blueprints with this new album. We will have to check it out when they release the full 19-track project at the end of the month.
