MP3: Oh No & Chris Keyes: "Let's Go"-2012

New Collaborative Album Ashes To Be Released October 23rd; "Let's Go" Serves As First Official Single
Earlier this month, Oh No announced a new collaborative album with upstart producer Chris Keys. The album, titled Ashes, in which Oh No, for the very first time, relinquishes totally his producer reins, will be released October 23rd via Heavy Keys Records. In announcing the project, Oh & Chris gave fans an early preview with the gritty Guilty Simpson and Montage One-featuring "Devastation," and now the rapper and producer pair are excited to release the album's first official single, "Let's Go."

"Let's Go," premiered today by MTV Hive, continues to show off not only the strength and quality of the music coming from Oh No's collaboration with Chris Keys, but also the diversity the two have been able to achieve; while "Devastation" beat its way through speakers with verses just as raw as the production, "Let's Go" instead pulses its way to listeners' ears. "I wanted to make a song that'd be a little more hype, something with a little more of a party vibe," says Chris, who admits that he wasn't sure about the song until he heard what Oh No did with the track. "I couldn't really hear how it was going to come out," explains Chris, "but when I heard what Oh did with the hook, I knew it was a definite single."

For Oh No's part, he pulled his inspiration for the song from a recent party that he stumbled upon while on tour in Europe. "I walked into this big ass rave," recalls Oh No, "with fire torches, tents, thousands of people getting drunk, no police, no problems – just everybody having a grand time."
