It’s been a fun summer for San Diego, California native Rob $tone and his 1207 collective. Summer Sixteen has seen him rack up a Billboard hit in, “Chill Bill“, performed alongside Lil’ Uzi Vert in one of the most lit performances of the summer, all culminating in inking a deal with RCA Records. It looks as if Rob & co are looking to carry this over into the fall by enlisting Denzel Curry, Cousin Stizz, and burgeoning stud D.R.A.M for the star studded “Chill Bill” remix.
$tone spoke with The Fader about how this collaboration came together:
It’s crazy now to have these dudes on the remix. I’ve followed Denzel Curry since before I picked up a mic and I’ve had Stizz in rotation since late 2015. I met D.R.A.M out in L.A. on a promo run and dude was hella cool and had good energy. Everybody did their own thing on it and it came out poppin.
Rob premiered the infectious remix during his pop up shop/listening session for his upcoming mixtape; I’m Almost Ready to great reaction from the fans. $tone also premiered another upcoming track he has with Curry titled “Meetings” that is sure to blow the summer up. The project in general sounded like a smooth, more introspective transition from the more upbeat “Chill Bill“.
