Baltimore hip hop duo Nick Often and Greg Ward, better known as Rapdragons, have been busy.

Soon after, they released the much-anticipated mixtape album, and one of my favorites, Featuring Baltimore — a collection of hip hop tracks each sampling a different band from baltimore, including Beach House and Future Islands.
Now when I woke up this morning, I was pleasantly surprised and excited to see an email from Rapdragons waiting in my inbox announcing their latest mixtape EP, Natural Born Chillers.

Like Featuring Baltimore, the new EP is another collection of hip hop meets indie rock…or as I like to call it, Indie Hop.
