Not much is known about Chiddy’s childhood and past, as he has not made these details available to the media or press. His publicly known history starts from his college or university days.
Chiddy’s rap career started when he met Noah Beresin – Xaphoon Jones – in Drexel University. They started collaborating together under the duo name Chiddy Bang. Their music is unique because it’s a mix of hip hop and alternative, sampling tracks from artists like Ellie Goulding, Radiohead, MGMT and many more. In 2009, they took their music to MySpace where it got picked up and was featured on a popular music blog. They began gaining popularity in the underground hip hop scene, and became popular on social media. One thing led to another, and they were able to pack in a huge crowd when they performed at Swarthmore College in April 2009.
A bunch of different mixtapes were released by Chiddy: “Swelly Express”, “Air Swell”, before they signed up for their first full length album in 2012 – that album “Breakfast” is where the popular song “Mind Your Manners” was debuted, at #8 on the Billboard 200 charts, with 31,000 copies sold in its first week.
Music licensing is another way that Chiddy was able to establish his net worth. His songs and mixes have been included in popular video game franchises, especially in sports. His song “Mind Your Manners” was used in Madden NFL, “Here We Go” was used in “NBA 2k12”, and his songs were also used in the racing game “Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit”. His song “Opposite of Adults” was used in celebrations by the North American team at the Hockey World Cup in 2016.
Chiddy is also a Guinness World Record holder for “Longest Marathon Rapping” and “Longest Freestyle Rap”; in 2011 he beat the two records at once during the first MTV O Music Awards, where he rapped for 9 hours 18 minutes and 22 seconds straight, even while going through two bathroom breaks.
Since 2014, Chiddy Bang has been solo, and released a few singles including “Breathe”, “Heartbeat” and “Full Speed Ahead”. Promises of an album have yet to materialize, but he is still very popular on social media.
As to his personal life, Chiddy still keeps it very private, so there aren’t even any rumours of romantic associations!
