Chiddy Bang pay homage to soul legend Ray Charles on the first single off their upcoming debut album Breakfast. But the Philly-born duo say the song was acutally inspired from Chiddy's brother. "The song actually started out as a joke when my brother, Cheeseburger Don, got so high he fell asleep in the studio with his sunglasses on," said Chiddy to Rolling Stone. "I looked over and he reminded me of Ray Charles, probably because I was high, too. I started freestyling about him and we laid it down right there."

Breakfast arrives in stores February 28, 2012 and you can purchase "Ray Charles" on iTunes now.
