French producer Brodinski connects with D.C. rapper Shy Glizzy on a new single “Whoa,” the latest Songs From Scratch series installment presented by adidas Originals.
As is often the case with the artists featured in the #songsfromscratch series, the partnership between French producer Brodinski and D.C. rapper Shy Glizzy came from left field. Even though they’re from vastly different places, and backgrounds, they made the kind of connection that’s hard to put into words. They both share a pure love of hip-hop, and they’re both fascinated by big, boisterous hooks. They linked up late at night in a top-of-the-line studio in Glizzy’s backyard, in a kind of weird place; it’s right next to a lot where Bolt Buses are serviced and stored, and just to the side of a billboard advertising reruns of A Different World. The strange set-up surrounding their session makes for interesting background information, but the real magic is in the track itself: “WOAH.”
