Unabashed 88 rap obsessives The Cool Kids dropped The Bake Sale on iTunes this month, finally anteing up on a couple years 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.
