88-Keys, Kidz in the Hall Create Tour-Inspired Track
Producer 88-Keys and duo Kidz in the Hall are hitting the road and co-headlining the Crowd Control Tour, beginning Feb. 28 at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. In conjunction with the 20-city tour launch, 88-Keys and the Kidz’ Double-O sat down a produced the ‘Crowd Control’ anthem, marking the first time the artists have all appeared together on the same track.
88-Keys, who has produced for such artists as Mos Def, Scarface, and Beanie Sigel, credits his previous spot on the Kid Cudi and Asher Roth Great Hangover Tour with providing the motivation to branch out on his own, as well as return to the studio and start work on the follow-up to his 2008 debut, ‘The Death of Adam.’ Executive produced by Kanye West, the album showcased the producer’s talents as a singer and an MC, which will be further on display with his upcoming ‘The ALPHA Program, Ver. 2.1′ mixtape.
