A few years ago I did an interview for this beat making series called Chop Suey. There was a beat I quickly made on the spot (one of several) during the time I was being interviewed out in Santa Monica, CA at Red Bull’s super dope recording studio. One of the beats was used to segue in & out of the video interview. Many people who saw this interview always commented on one track in particular. I’ve seen a bunch of people make suggestions as to whom I should give the beat to or just put it out as an instrumental. I actually was never really into the beat & thought that I deleted it until…
BJ & Nemo Vibin’
Enter: Nemo Achida… (a.k.a. Black Prince Harry) Rap PHENOMENON hailing from Lexington, KY who I met via Twitter a couple of years ago & signed to my burgeoning label Locksmith Music. One day, we were at my studio (The Rhinelander) about to get our work day started with making dope songs. So as I was going through some beats on my MPC 3000, pulling out old zip disks, I came across the “Chop Suey fan favorite” beat which I thought I deleted. Low & behold, there it was & Nemo liked it a lot. I had other opinions about it but I didn’t want to stifle his creation.
Yep… It’s Teyana & Her Boobies (But Those Aren’t Nemo or BJ’s Hands)
While he was vining out to the beat, in walks m’man BJ The Chicago Kid who was in the building for a meeting. He came through to shout me out before making his exit but not only were daps given… He & Nemo met & creatively hit it off instantly.
So good people of our beautiful Hip Hop community, here is one of two collaborations between Nemo Achida x BJ The Chicago Kid & myself (88-Keys) for you audible pleasure & enjoyment.
Be sure to download & tell a friend. You won’t be disappointed… Trust!

Shout Out: Big shout out to the homey BJ The Chicago Kid for coming through & blessing us with his talent & great company. Thank you. Oh & he & I have a couple of things cookin’ up as well. You heard it hear first folks. Be on the look out!
Straight from Complex Magazine’s First We Feast website/series I do my best Raekwon The Chef Paula Deen impersonation (which, given the current circumstances, might oddly be more of an accurate description) & “cook up” in my kitchen.
I Didn’t Pray Before I Ate; Don’t Let The RL Polo “Head Wrap” Fool You
Post Script: …but I DO have a video concept I’m going to take a stab at shooting & directing m’DAMNself for my artist Tre DeJean for his song I produced called “Gypsy Cab Confessions”. The concept I have for the video is pretty f*ckin’ crazy. Wish me/us luck.
Yessur…the black tees are back. if you want one you can get it here for $20. It includes the “Gatekeepers” joint we recorded for Mick Boogie, the instrumental (which is mostly just a sample until the hook comes in lol) and it also includes a thumbs up from the both of us that you’ll be able to sense from the universe once you hit “add to cart”. I’m about to send you a free one now…..sensed it? now youll get two more of those when you cop the tee. Nice.
Here is a SELF-PRODUCED EP by my artist Nemo Achida. You’re going to want to download this to add to your collection of Nemo Achida music & also so you could hear how I flip each song on the upcoming remix project I’m doing for this EP. More details to come but for now, enjoy the freshness!
