In The Valley Below Present “Candy Hearts” Single and Video
“Candy Hearts is the story of a fun, indulgent and shallow relationship,” says Angela Mattson, “the kind of relationship that is exciting but going nowhere.

It’s dark and sweet.”
After dropping “The Coin” with Nigerian rappers Alpha Ojini & Phlow, Producer/DJ Teck-Zilla returns with this hard-hitting state-side collaboration titled “Los Tres Grandes.” The bar-heavy track sees him working with prominent Brooklyn lyricist John Jigg$, Boston’s Revalation (of EMS fame), and Detroit’s Nolan The Ninja. Bolstered by Teck-Zilla’s retro-cinematic textures and soft bounce, which builds up into a horn-driven chorus that helps tie it all together as the trio unleashes their verbal gauntlet with little to no recourse. Jigg$ opens up the floor with his laid-back confident flow followed by Rev’s gruff vocals and witty bars while Nolan closes it out on his own accord with his characteristic nonconformist flow. “Los Tres Grandes” is taken from Teck-Zilla’s yet to be titled full-length project.
