Black Mags [Throwback]
The Cool Kids
Yesterday, the rap blogosphere was greeted with the joyous news of an unexpected reunion. A year after disappointing fans by telling them that the duo was history, Chuck Inglish and Sir Michael Rocks are officially back together as The Cool Kids. Their last project, When Fish Ride Bicycles, dropped five years ago.
Asher Roth Feat. Michael Christmas & Larry June
Asher Roth is making his return after teaming up with Nottz and Travis Barker for an EP in February, Rawther. This time around he gets production from a frequent collaborator, Chuck Inglish, with features from Michael Christmas and Larry June, the latter of whom may be unexpected (he was also featured on Post Malone's mixtape though so he's obviously doing something right).
Maxo Kream Feat. Playboi Carti & Rich The Kid
Maxo Kream's got one. The Houston native comes through just as Friday is winding down (or winding up, depending on your plans) with the Chuck Inglish-produced "Spike Lee."
Earlly Mac Feat. Chuck Inglish & Aaron Cohen
Earlly Mac back at it again with the smooth sounds. The Detroit native links up with Chicago (Chuck Inglish) and Seattle (Aaron Cohen) brethren for this cut, "Bron Bron," following up last month's "Gem in the Eye" with Daz Dillinger.
Chuck Inglish & Blended Babies Feat. Asher Roth
Chuck Inglish and production duo Blended Babies have long been collaborators, however they're coming with their first official joint effort, Ev Zepplin, in the coming weeks. They've slowly been rolling out leaks, and choose today to unleash a cut that features another frequent Blended Babies collaborator, Asher Roth.
House Party 6: The Pajama Jam
Keeping their Sunday release strategy intact, (even though it's 2 days late), Grey Sweatpants decided to come through once again this past weekend and share another track on their soundcloud page called “House Party 6: The Pajama Jam.”
Game for You
Larry June Feat. Chuck Inglish
Looking to build off the momentum generated from his collaborative mixtape with Sledgren Sock It To Me, San Francisco’s buzzing new artist Larry June decides to come through today and share his latest offering called “Game For You” featuring Cool Kids’ own Chuck Inglish.
Chuck Inglish & Blended Babies Feat. A$ton Matthews
Chuck Inglish & Blended Babies have joined forces to conform EV Zepplin, a self-titled project that will be released on April 29 and feature guest appearances from Asher Roth, Boldy James, Alex Wiley, Buddy, Caleb James, A$ton Mathews, & Nathan Santos.
We haven't featured much solo material from Two-9 rapper Jace in the past, but why not, amirite?? The rapper is currently prepping a solo project, titled Jace Tape in case there's any confusion. After announcing a release date for the end of February, February 29th, he comes through today with a Chuck Inglish-produced banger. It features a few trademark Chuck noises (cowbell, drums), and some unusual ones too (vocal sample). Chuck even interjects Jace's rapping with a bar.
Fat Raps 3
King Chip Feat. Chuck Inglish, Earlly Mac, Big Sean & Curren$y
Back in 2009 King Chip, aka Chip The Ripper back then, released a mixtape called The Cleveland Show which featured fellow on-the-come-up rappers Curren$y and Big Sean on the track “Fat Raps.”. A year later, Big Sean, Asher Roth, and DOM Kennedy joined the party on the official remix, and that was what we thought was the end of “Fat Raps,” until tonight that is.
Chuck Inglish Feat. ManMan Savage
Before his album, Everybody’s Big Brother, drops in the next couple of hours, Chuck Inglish decides to share one last preview off it ahead of time called “Short Stoppin'” featuring ManMan Savage.
Chuck Inglish is warming us up for his new solo album, Everybody's Big Brother. Last we spoke to him about the album, it was supposed to be due out in the summer, but obviously the summer's come and went at this point (sad face).
Chuck Inglish Feat. Buddy
On October 2, Chuck Inglish will be releasing a new album for the fans called Everybody’s Big Brother. Today, he decides to share a new track that didn’t make the final album cut due to sample clearances called “Whoa/Whoa,” featuring D-town’ own Buddy. And just like the artwork of Joey Lawrence, the track is emoji flames. Look for Chuck to continue to rollout new music leading up to the album release on October 2. EBB will hit iTunes next for those who want to pre-order that bish a head of time. Stay tuned.
Bathroom By The Auditorium
Grey Sweatpants returns today with the release of "Bathroom by the Auditorium," where he takes us on a trip down memory lane, accompanied by Chuck Inglish's dexterous production. The cousin of Chuck seems determined to make rap music about topics rarely touched upon-- from the soul-touching question "Are Cheetos Really Chips?" to the first time he banged a chick, apparently in the bathroom by the school's auditorium.
Fuck The Hook
Earlly Mac Feat. Chuck Inglish & Dusty McFly
"I don't need no hook for this shit," whether declared or not, can be a very successful formula, but not just anyone can pull it off. Luckily, Earlly Mac, Chuck Inglish, and Dusty McFly command enough individual attention that no refrain is needed on their new record. Although, like Jay Z's song of a similar title, the repeated phrase of "Fuck that hook," does low-key serve as a chorus, but on the strength of their 16s alone, we'll let it slide.
Chuck Inglish & Sir Michael Rocks
The Cool Kids reunite(!!). At least for this one record. Chuck Inglish and Sir Michael Rocks, former rapping partners, come together for Chuck's new single off his upcoming album Everybody's Big Brother. This follows up the single "2003," which we premiered the other month, however "Super Squad" is being touted as the "lead" single. The record is quintessential Chuck, with minimalistic production featuring cowbells and bass.
Raz Fresco Feat. Chuck Inglish
On July 1st, Raz Fresco will release a new project called Pablo Frescobar, from which we've already heard the Bishop Nehru-assisted "Equinox" and "Screwface City." Today, he liberates a new one called "Cortez Nikes" that features Chuck Inglish.
Asher Roth shared the video for "That's Cute" last week, and today he's shared the official audio. The record is laced by a heavy sub-bass beat courtesy of Chuck Inglish, and Asher adjusts his flow accordingly, resembling something akin to a classic Cool Kids record. Asher's been experimenting with more psychedelic, live instrumental sounds, so this is one of the purest rap songs he's done in a while.
Chuck Inglish Feat. Grey Sweatpants
Chuck Inglish takes us back to '03 and all the goodness that era contained with his new single. The former Cool Kids member, who brought the '90s back in his first life as a rapper, is now aiming to bring the early '00s back, but, as we discussed in our interview, not just any year in the 2000s. It's gotta be 2003. What was so great about '03 you ask?
Down On My Luck (Chuck Inglish Remix)
Chuck Inglish's old group The Cool Kids always had a refreshing, think-outside-the-box approach to rap. Supposedly, he made the "Black Mags" beat while on shrooms.
