Rapper Javan Davis is known for his featured verse on Rob $tone's Top 30 pop hit "Chill Bill." Davis had taken a taken a liking to an instrumental produced by Purp Dogg -- a slow, booming track with a whistling melody sampled from Bernard Herrmann's theme for the 1968 film Twisted Nerve, later heard in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol.

Originally released independently in 2015, the track was licensed by major-label RCA, which propelled it onto the Billboard charts the following year. By the end of that November, it cracked the Top 30 of the Hot 100 and the Top Ten of Hot Rap Songs, and was included on the streaming playlist The RCA-List. Davis, like $tone, is a member of 1207, a collective based in the San Diego Country, California town of Lemon Grove. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
