The Cool Kids – Flying Kites

| May 30, 2010 | 3 Comments

Leak numero 3 from The Cool Kids Tacklebox project, that drops tomorrow.  This joint was intended for the original version of When Fish Ride Bicycles, that was supposed to drop last year.  

In my preview of When Fish Ride Bicycles (from March ’09) I had this to say about the track: 

Flying Kites

Another knocker. It sounds like Chuck is channeling another producer from the Motor City, the late-great J. Dilla, on this one. So far I’ve been really impressed with how cohesive the album is sounding. When you hear the LP in its entirety, you’ll never get it confused with anything from another Cool Kids album (or time in their career). This is some next level material.

I have no idea why I thought he was channeling Dilla that night when I first heard it.  This sounds nothing like Dilla to me now (with the exception of those sirens which were heavily featured Donuts).  Blame it on the Henny?

The Cool Kids – Fishing Lessons

| May 30, 2010 | 5 Comments

The Cool Kids + LA Leakers mixtape Tacklebox drops tomorrow (Memorial Day) at 8pm sharp.   The project features brand new material, freestyles and joints that have yet to see the light of day.  This mix should be more than enough to feed your appetite until their legal drama with Chocolate Industries is over and they can release a proper album.  

They bust the stupid dope moves on this sinister banger from Chuck Ingles.  So sit back as the Kids teach you how to fish.

Mikey Rocks Brings LeBron James To Chicago…

| May 28, 2010 | 2 Comments

Well, at least he makes his case for it on this mixtape…

A popular question/debate over the past few weeks has been “where is LeBron headed next season”. There has been a TON of talk of him joining the Chicago Bulls and making the ‘Go his new home, but I’m sure we have a long way to go before that happens.

Last week, when I hit the Blender to listen to the Chip & Chuck project, Chip was heading to NYC the next morning to participate in this Vitamin Water campaign – The Choice Is Yours.  An emcee from every city that (potentially) has the opportunity  to sign Bron Bron was recruited to participate in the project and make the claim for their city being the best fit for King James.  Holding it down for the Windy City is Mikey Rocks of The Cool Kids, who invites Bron to the city where we make Champions.

Jadakiss, Chip Tha Ripper, Nipsey Hussle, Brisco and UM also may their advances towards LeBron.  My question is, who is most deserving?  

Don Cannon hosts the project, which only features three songs, but Mikey is featured on all of them.
