Tonight: Chiddy Bang to Perform at SMW Closing Celebration!

It’s been a crazy, amazing and historical week–we saw tweets from space, wrestlers taking over panels and so much more!

Now it’s time to party!

Chiddy Bang is a Philly based hip-hop duo featuring 19-year old Drexel Students Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege (emcee) and Xaphoon Jones (DJ/producer). They’ll be rockin’ the beats tonight at District36!

Their hip-hop sound combines electronica and indie sensibilities and has been described as “a hipsters wet dream” using samples from groups like MGMT and passion pit.
