Moving MidWestPosted: February 27, 2012
What y’all know about the flavor out in the midwest… I bet other than Kanye not a damn thang. Well y’all gone learn today!!! (in my Kevin Hart voice). What I got for you this week is PERCEPTION, that’s not the name of this weeks artist, it’s what keeps people in the dark… Definition perception: the act or faculty of apprehending by means of the sensor of the mind; cognition; understanding. Perception, or the lack thereof, will keep you from hearing artist like what we got for you this week. The Cool Kids are definitely not the status quo but what they are is more important.
The Cool Kids, a duo composed of rappers Antoine “Sir Michael Rocks” Reed out of Illinois (the MidWest!) and Evan “Chuck Inglish” Ingersoll out of Michigan (also the MidWest!) With most of the production from the group member Chuck Inglish. The sound is out of this world laid back, with a heavy dose of 808 boom. Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish complement this production perfectly, with their similar laid back & nonchalant voices they almost sound like they not having fun. But their lyrics are less on the punch lines and more on story telling, which consist of women, fashion, shoes, & other shit…
All n’ all don’t let your perceptions of what music is supposed to be, keep you from experiencing some true quality. Check the latest album by The Cool Kids, When Fish Ride Bikes, and some of the tracks from the album. Til next week you know what to do. Check the track & post back!!!
