Twin Sister Rap Duo Cam & China Team With Barclay Crenshaw for “The Baddest”

23-year-old twins Cam & China are making some of the best rap music in Los Angeles. Coming from Inglewood, they released a self-titled EP last year, packed with beats that slap and lyrics that don't hold back on anything, whether its their disdain for the fakes or their own self-confidence They have more music, videos, and shows in the works for 2018, but first comes this booming collaboration with Barclay Crenshaw, which is the alter ego of successful dance music producer/label head Claude VonStroke. Watch the video for “The Baddest,” featuring a vintage Rolls Royce and some wild tattoos, above. Learn more about how the track came together below.

“Last year I released an album under Barclay Crenshaw of all alternative hip-hop futuristic type stuff,” Crenshaw tells us. “This is the next step in that project. I want to continue on this path and see where it takes me. My first love is hip-hop. Even though I got really into house and techno I always knew I would come back to old school hip-hop and weird beat music.”

He adds, “I really like the energy of Cam and China. They were amazing to work with. They are fun and they have great skill on the mic. The whole session in the studio was easy going and very creative. It really was a collaboration of ideas to make this track.”

Cam adds, “We want women to feel confident when they hear this, despite any negativity thrown your way on a day to day basis whether it’s being compared, bashed, talked about, bullied, unappreciated, disrespected, slept on, or looked down on. Always walk with dignity and move with grace. I hope this motivates women from all ages to work hard, never settle, and more importantly never remove your crown for no one. Show them who’s the baddest. What this track symbolizes to us is that women are powerful when we stick together.”

“I also think it’s a great time for black women, women in general are making history and setting trends,” she continues. “For example Cardi B, Issa Rae, Rihanna, Gabby Douglas, Tiffany Haddish, Michelle Obama, Viola Davis, Loretta Lynch to name a few. I think the time is now and time is up.”
