When the subject of the most influential Chicago hip-hop artists of the ‘90s and ‘00s is brought up, I can guarantee mention of the usual suspects: Kanye West, Common, Twista, Lupe Fiasco, Crucial Conflict, Do or Die, etc. But when is the last time you heard someone mention Kidz in the Hall?
When I first heard Kidz in the Hall, I thought they were another hip-hop act that was stuck in the genre’s Golden Era, recreating a sound they were hardly old enough to appreciate. To be fair, my first taste of them was “Wheelz Fall Off (‘06 Til),” a track with an instrumental based around the ubiquitous horn sample from Souls of Mischief’s seminal classic “‘93 ‘til Infinity.” How could you blame me?FSD STAFF 0
