RAP TO THE FUTURE

Chicago’s Cool Kids would do it all over if they could

Unabashed ’88 rap obsessives The Cool Kids dropped The Bake Sale on iTunes this month, finally anteing up on a couple year’s worth of hype. Their ghetto-blaster-, bikes-, shell-toe-sneakers-, 808-drums-, and flattop-fixated EP will be comfort food to those who grew up on rap in the ’80s, and utterly unfamiliar to those who did so in the post-Chronic ’90s. Never mind, of course, that neither of the two Cool Kids MCs are a day over 23—they do a great impression. With HEAVy(BBE), Mickey Factz, and Egg Foo Young.
