Editors’ Notes

The Bake Sale is at the forefront of a new multihued strain of hip-hop spurred on by Kanye West’s success. The Cool Kids’ literate, fashionable brand of rap music has one foot in the golden age inventions of De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, EPMD, and the other planted firmly in the au courant attitude of skateboard culture. Or maybe, as Chuck Inglish puts it in “One Two,” this duo is simply “the new black version of the Beastie Boys.” Sure, their taste in BMX bikes and retro Sega games might be passé within a year, but it’s hard not to revel in all the fun the Cool Kids are having. The Bake Sale wins because it avoids the holier-than-thou attitude that engulfs so many revivalist rappers. Songs like “Mikey Rocks,” “Gold and a Pager,” and “Jingling” incorporate to the minimalist beats of old-schoolers like Boogie Down Productions and the slowed-down styles of contemporary Southern hip-hop without excluding either. Like Pharrell and the Neptunes, whose influence is all over The Bake Sale, The Cool Kids strike a carefree balance between the classic and the current.

Customer Reviews

The Truth Dot Com.

The Cool Kids are one of the few artists that have given life & originality back to the hip-hop game. Their grind is ridiculous. Their beats are amazing. Their lyrics aren`t the stereotypical "money, cars, hoes"; they are more. The Kids are going places. Places like the top of the Billboards.

Very Good

i just saw these guys live and they are legit when they say they are "bringin 88' back" they are a prime example of what 80's hip hop was and is the best new act to hit hip hop. Its great to see guys dedicated to the old sounds instead of new stuff like Flor Rida and T-pain. I bought this because i feel an obligation to support these dudes because they are doing a great thing for hip hop

Something Different, yet familiar!

This is a fresh breath for hip-hop. These cats are the coolest. Their sound takes us back to late 80's/early 90's. It is proof that hip-hop is expanding and has indeed grown up. Support these dudes and purchase the album!

Biography

Formed: 2007

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Part of the mid-2000s hip-hop movement that found kids in all-over prints rapping about their shoes and their favorite forms of transportation (which often weren't cars), the Cool Kids proved to be both an Internet and live show phenomenon. The duo of Mikey Rocks (born Antoine Reed) and Chuck Inglish (or Evan Ingersoll) met in mid-2005 after Mickey came across some of Chuck's beats online and liked what he heard. They met up in their Chicago-area homes (where Mikey was born and raised; Chuck lived...
