Hip hop and R&B duo Prince Peezy & Lala Chanel have been hard at work upon their upcoming EP “Project X”. But while that has kept them fairly busy, they have gone on to release a new single titled “Lit”, grabbing in the attention from all of the inter webs. When they were asked why people should care let alone check out their music, they responded with “We just do what we love, we put our life in our music, and we do it for ourselves. We hope that our fans & the world connects.”
They differentiate themselves from other artists or bands for that matter, because they are a hard working group that is ready and willing to lead the coming age of the indie artist, according to them with how they see it that is. They will have their moment in that Florida sun, as that is where they come from and will continue to reign.
Prince Peezy and Lala Chanel go into discussion about the “Lit”, single and the EP to follow it, as well as further plans to play some showcases as well as more music coming soon!
