Rap-Up TV: Kevin McCall Talks ‘Deuces’ Success, New Chris Brown Album

When “Deuces” hit No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Kevin McCall and his collaborators Chris Brown and Tyga celebrated the occasion with a “text toast.” Their busy schedules prevented them from meeting up in-person, but Kevin is thrilled for the mixtape track’s success. “We’re all happy, we’re all excited,” he told Rap-Up TV at the 2010 BMI Urban Music Awards.

In addition to working on his own mixtape, the singer-songwriter-producer has been in the studio with Timbaland (“I was about to pass out”) and Chris to record Brown’s next album. He describes two new tracks, the country-tinged “Another You” and “Rest of My Life,” and gives us a hint as to what we can expect from his Polow Da Don-produced single “Calypso.”

The talented artist has something for the Keri Hilson fans too, having produced a slow jam for her sophomore album No Boys Allowed with C. Breezy and Tank. The song was originally written for RichGirl, but found its way into Keri’s hands.
