Kidz in the Hall sometimes masquerade as hipster rap, but there’s no mistaking they’d much prefer to hang out with Little Brother circa 2004 or A Tribe Called Quest circa 1995. Plus, they’re now on TRL, so if this keeps up, context is about to matter a lot less than it once did. How liberating. JON CARAMANICA
