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I had originally made a bet with my cousin Alex about when this album was going to drop and I bet him that it was going to come out in the summer of 2009 (which was the scheduled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.

The Cool Kids link up with Nike and Footlocker for a dope commercial for “Get Fresh Air”… This commercial features the likes of Amare Stoudemire, Desean Jackson, and Chris Bosh. Kind of looks like Ken Griffey taking the shoes out of the oven at one point. “Some of that, some of this, clear like summertime when I’m riding round the city, get it, if you wit it get wit us, cool like the breeze when it’s 95 degrees.”
“We are cool kids from Chicago. We’re gonna have fun. We’re gonna party.” How would you describe your music: “DOPE… REALLY REALLY DOPE.” I was describing their music to a friend earlier in the week. They are the epitome of the word COOL. Hit up the interview and see what’s good with Chuck N’ Mikey.
Here’s another leak joint off N.A.S.A’s The Spirit of Apollo, which is coming on February 27th. I’m pretty damn hyped for the official release. Super creative ish, and incredibly dope collabs. You can read the title…

Look at Rubbish is a heaping pile of creatives, turning worn down media trash into visual treasures. They are rooted in Chicago, IL and spanning across the U.S… Look at Rubbish is a collective that specializes in independent film, video, and design – there’s also a TINY clip of the “Pennies” music video. Oh, and also spotted at FSD!

Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish of The Cool Kids get together with Eighty81.com to answer a couple of questions about the opposite sex in this video entitled “Rules Of Attraction.” Hear it from the kids themselves… Peep da vid.
Everyone’s Fav. White Boy also posted up some quality footage of The Cool Kids performing their dope track “Eighty-Eight (88)” at the Phoenix Concert Theatre… Y’all know that I’m a big fan of Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks, so see what they did.
