Chiddy Bang, 'Ray Charles'

Mike Piscitelli

"Ray Charles," the first single from the hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang's debut album, Breakfast, is named after the legendary soul singer, but it was actually inspired by a member of Chiddy's family. "The song actually started out as a joke when my brother, Cheeseburger Don, got so high he fell asleep in the studio with his sunglasses on," says Chiddy. "I looked over and he reminded me of Ray Charles, probably because I was high, too. I started freestyling about him and we laid it down right there." You can stream the tune in the video clip below, and buy the single from iTunes.
