"Painted Houses" is the fourth single released by Chore Boy since his album Pongo, vol. 1 dropped in March, and the first in a series of drops intended to contextualize his next body of work with Brad Kemp, impacting this Winter.
Chores and Kemp have been churning out music together for years, quietly grinding in Chicago & honing their craft in the midst of a competitive music scene experiencing yet another renaissance period. Though the pair have collaborated abundantly with area artists in the past (this is theirthirdrecordwith Vagabond Maurice to release this year, for example), Fashawn's feature represents their first from far outside their circle... and the realization of a dream come true for Chore Boy. "I've been listening to Fash since 2009, right around when I first started rapping," says Chores, "Boy Meets Worldis a classic. Hearing him on this record was surreal, and he laced it with exactly what it needed."
