The Cool Kids Are Way Better Than Jurassic 5

I used think I was funny and say that Chicago rappers The Cool Kids are the new Jurassic 5. That was meant to be completely an insult towards the idea of throwback rap.

But shit, doods persona are a lot, ahem cooler, than Charlie Tuna and all those cornball jamband nerds. They don’t sing song over Dave Mathews percussion. Plus I can fuck with the miminal post-Neptunes production and a general feeling of superiority from the reality of how Allah made some of us .

Anyway, here is a video of the Cool Kids telling you how they want to be the reason you cop a system.

They also want you to download their new mixtape Gone Fishin which involves Don Cannon somehow. You don’t get the feeling Don Cannon got involved one of those pay to play scams that mixtape dejays use to get extra money off fanbase lacking rappers that are trying to work their angles. Shit bangs. Download it here:

MP3: The Cool Kids x Don Cannon-Gone Fishin

They are standing behind the Newport in front of an Ender tag.

  • Mmmmm

    devil hipster rap!!!


  • What bangs is the loop sample of the word ‘cannon’ that plays through the entire mixtape.

    always cracks me up how people just assume that they are the 15%… usually means they aren’t because, if they were, they wouldn’t boast.

    i’m glad i missed this show. they’re wack.

    and to say they’re better than J5? are you serious? wes, you need to get your head straight, dude. what is your problem? they’re like the poster boys for what’s wrong with music and culture these days. cool kids is more like performance art than it is actual music. ‘hey look, we’re wearing clothes that look like they’re from the early 90’s and we sing about sega and gold ropes and use a buncha old drum samples’… give me a break if i hear one more hip-hop kid singing the refrain “wit a lil bitta gold and a pager”, i’m going to beat them over the head with their skateboard. whatever happened to innovation?

    oh, and on the topic of the mixtape… (why are they called mixtapes, anyway? oooo! another trendy throwback term!) someone needs to tell don cannon to take a chill pill. obnoxious!
