Some groups seem to go a lot farther together than apart: arguments could be made for Black Sheep, Outkast, Young Gunz, and Tha Dogg Pound. One contemporary clique that may fit into that description is Chicago, Illinois’ The Cool Kids.

The mid-2000s MySpace success group, combining fashion with ’80s-styled boom-bap beats was delivered into the mainstream under the early iteration of A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Records. However, legal battles, and creative differences made Sir Michael Rocks (aka Sir Mikey Rocks) and Chuck Inglish split on their paths. After deals with Jet Life and a series of collaborations, mixtapes, and more, the Kids are back at it.

Today, the guys released “Computer School” and “Chop.” Core fans ought to be pleased, as both cuts sound aligned with those ’06-’07 songs that took the Internet by storm in the infancy of the “blog era.”
