Wale & Sir Michael Rocks Engage In Twitter Beef
Wale & Sir Michael Rocks Engage In Twitter Beef Oct 9, 2013 at 10:05am
This is pretty random, but somehow MMG's Wale and Sir Michael Rocks of The Cool Kids got into a small Twitter beef last night. Wale's no stranger to beef, but we don't usually hear about Mikey getting mixed up in it. Wale had tweeted a question to his fans a few days ago, asking, "Whats the best anime series?" For whatever reason, Mikey Rocks saw this and called him out, tweeting, "Yo u will b super Sus talkin about anime G its not u." It seemed at first Wale didn't realize this was 1/2 of The Cool Kids, but once he did, he told Mikey to watch who he's talking too.

Shooting The Shit With Sir Michael Rocks
Shooting The Shit With Sir Michael Rocks Aug 25, 2014 at 11:28am
Sir Michael Rocks is not new when it comes to this rapping thing. He's been doing it for almost ten years now, yet he can still be considered a young'n at the current age of 26 (and in fact, he's often grouped in with the young'ns, something we discuss during our interview). When he started out with Chuck Inglish as The Cool Kids back in 2005, he was too ahead of his time. Now that time has caught up with Mikey's style, he's on to the next one.

Sir Michael Rocks, also known as Mikey Rocks, also known as 1/2 of the Cool Kids, is probably the freshest motherfucker ever. It's not even a cocky thing, he'll tell you himself, it's just what it is. But not only is Mikey Rocks always fresh, he's always ahead of the curve, music-wise and fashion-wise. His laidback flow is definitely a good fit for Curren$y's Jet Life Recordings, to which Rocks signed back in October.

With the hectic-ness that was HOT 97's Summer Jam UA was missing from the site last week. Nonetheless, today we return in full force looking back at tracks that were posted within the past fourteen days instead of seven, because as usual, more than a few dope cuts have gone overlooked. From the still-slept-on song-maker The-Dream, to rising New York rapper Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, we've got both r'n'b and hip-hop covered on today's six picks.
