I’m getting to the end of posting all of the songs off of my ‘Risky Biscuits’ album from 2001 (it only took me four months to post them all). This is a fun rap song I did with two of my all time favorite colleagues. Once known as the Tragic Click, Blood (Kenya Bloodsaw) and Coda Baerfider (Rico Davenport) were an incredible creative force in the early 2000’s Athens, Georgia music scene. Rico brought me a very long crazy beat one day and I whittled it down to make this song adding some piano, stand up bass and Mike Elam’s great muted trumpet.
We had a great time making this song in the studio and it shows. It is still consistently one of my top downloaded songs on Rhapsody and other online music sources. Thanks for listening! #rapmusic #funnyrapsongs #georgiamusic
I recently reconnected with Coda Baerfider, who I’ve talked about several times on this blog. He’s quite a character and a heck of a lyricist and rapper. This is a creation we made with Kenya Bloodsaw (aka Blood) back around 2001.
Funky and hilarious. Another Coda Baerfider collaboration with Ken Bloodsaw (aka Blood), bringing it home on the last verse. Together Coda and Blood were known as the Tragic Click and they were awesome. I’d love to post their song ‘Private Dancer’ but it’s way too X-rated. Anyway, have a great Monday!!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
