Christian Rich Discuss Producing New Music For Earl Sweatshirt & Childish Gambino

Twin brothers Christian Rich — aka Taiwo Hassan and Kehinde Hassan — have made a name for themselves producing for the likes of Lil Kim, Earl Sweatshirt and Childish Gambino. The Chicago-by-way-of-Nigeria bros are now doing it alone, releasing their first EP of original music, SS14. “The thing that really drove us into production was a friend of ours. We were all 9 years old and he had a Casio,” the brothers tell VIBE of their early start. “Back then, those sounds were cheesy to us, we hated it, but he was like, “Yo, this keyboard, you guys could be good at music.” Their friend was right.

SS14 drops today, July 7, via Lucky Number. Download it on iTunes here.
