Since the release of their self-titled EP on April 20, Colorado hip-hop super-group Food Chain has given away and offered up more than 3,000 EPs and downloads. And there's no slowing down the crew of emcees and producers. They recently hooked up with Colorado producer-of-the-moment Boon Doc, aka Boonie Mayfield, for their new single, "Round and Round." For those unaware, Boon recently won the Denver rounds of the Red Bull Big Tune competition and produced Mr. J Medeiros' recently released EP, The Art Broken Glass.
"Its been really awesome to see and experience such growth in such a short period of time," said group member Mic Coats. "The welcome our peers, dj's, radio stations, media, etc have given us has been extremely receptive and humbling to say the least! We've been recording some great material and are gearing up for some great performances here in the next few weeks."
You can check out Food Chain on Thursday, August 13, at Hermans Hideaway, Saturday, August 29, at the Walnut Room and on Thursday, September 3, at the Fox Theatre in Boulder with David Banner. In the meantime, check out the single after the jump.
