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.

Ode to The Cool Kids

With their fresh air jordans and their tight denim pants Don't judge by first glance, give the Cool Kids a chance Though you may be surprised by their unique attire Do not doubt for a second that they spit hot fire With flows so smooth and lyrics so clever Its quite easy to listen to them forever and ever They rap about chains, about pagers and bikes They rap about things that everybody likes This awesome duo of Mikey and Chuck Give all other rap groups very bad luck They are tough competion, nobody is better Their rhymes are more tight than an emo kid's sweater So take this poem to heart, buy The Bake Sale Then tell all your friends and The Cool Kids shall prevail

5 Stars

Definately one of the best TRUE Hip-Hop albums available and my personal favorite. Its nice to know that there is an alternative to the Soldier Boy Crap that is supposedly rap. The Cool Kids Bring it back a lil bit but definately keep it fresh as well! P.s. Chuck is Dope, and Mikey Rocks!

COOL KIDS ARE THE BEST

Biography

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...
