Hip-Hop double act, twin brothers, Presidents 919 hailing from North Carolina have teamed up with the iconic DJ Kid Capri for their mixtape, BEST DUO BEST FLOW. Eager to make an impression on Hip-Hop fans, Dic Nixon and Willie J Clinton sought some of the most influential and poignant tracks from the Hip-Hop timeline to create this project.
"We wanted the beats we selected for this project to take the listener back to when the original records were made and give people that feeling of nostalgia," explains Willie J Clinton.
To relay that feeling of nostalgia the host of a project which boasts hits from the likes of Gangstarr, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Outkast, M.O.P and many more had to be as influential as the music on the tape. "It seemed the obvious choice for Kid Capri to host BEST DUO BEST FLOW," shares Dic Nixon. "Kid has been front and center in Hip-Hop music since the 90's and remains extremely visible and to get him to be a part of this project gave the tape that authentic Hip-Hop co-sign."
The pressure to deliver on a project of this magnitude is undeniable but confident in what they were doing, Presidents 919 were just keen for their lyrics to do the talking. "It is like a case of classic fishing," jokes Dic Nixon. "The song recognition would would bait the listeners while our lyrics would reel them in." But pressure is not something these two brothers-in-rhyme shy away from.
Their mantra of making 'believers out of doubters, fans out of foes and supporters out of opponents' is what will give this act the determination to be recognized worldwide as the best duo with the best flow.
Here is another set of visuals, “Intro,” off of OBX & Tech-Neek's Middle Class Dreams/Blue Collar Schemes project, which is the opening track to the duo's EP. The track titled 'Intro' is produced by Ben Diggin. With these two, you won’t get any cliche rap.
