The Cool Kids finally will be releasing “When Fish Ride Bicycles” on July 12, 2011 with the help of the Green Label Sound (sponsored by Mountain Dew). In case you don’t know who The Cool Kids are, they are a duo of Chuck Inglish (from Michigan) and Mikey Rocks a.k.a. Sir Michael Rocks (from Illinois). The album has been in the making for over 2 years now – YES TWO YEARS – and they have released countless mixtapes prior to this album, so I’d hope that you as a hip hop music fan will go out and support the duo so that they can keep releasing albums instead of just mixtapes.

The Cool Kids Have Pushed Back the “When Fish Ride Bicycles” Release Date Since 2009
I had originally made a bet with my cousin Alex about when this album was going to drop and I bet him that it was going to come out in the summer of 2009 (which was the scheduled release date). He said he thought it wasn’t going to come out and I said “nah, they aren’t going to back out, let’s make a bet.” So the agreement was that if it came out on the original scheduled date, he would have to buy me a copy of their album in addition to his copy. If it got pushed back, I would have to buy him the Wu-Tang Clan box set from Best Buy. Fortunately, we negotiated and I somehow got out of having to get him the box set…haha
Then it got pushed back without further notice, then rescheduled, then “Pennies (Remix)” came out and I thought we were making progress, and then it got pushed, pushed, and pushed some more. I emailed The Cool Kids management and didn’t get a response back and was just annoyed with all of the push-backs (word to Dr. Dre). Anyways, it’s finally coming out, the real deal, I’m happy, my cousin’s happy, and you can expect nothing but solid dope music from this “When Fish Ride Bicycles album.” Plus when I saw their “Get Fresh Air commercial” with Nike, I got really excited to see them re-emerging.

This track “Raid” by Pusha T off of his “Fear of God mixtape” is the best on the tape and one of the best I’ve heard from Pusha in awhile.
