The Cool Kids Prep EP, Tour

It hasn't been so long since Chuck Inglish (Evan Ingersoll) and Mikey Rocks (Antoine Reed) met on MySpace and started performing in Chicago venues together as The Cool Kids, but these two have some serious accomplishments under their belts since 2005. What with performing alongside Clipse and De La Soul and catching the attention of every national music publication from XLR8R to Rolling Stone, it's no wonder they haven't had time to unleash an actual release to the masses until now.

The Bake Sale EP drops on Chocolate Industries in just a few short weeks, on June 10 (or tomorrow, if you prefer iTunes). The 10-track EP finds the two MCs basking in '80s nostalgia, golden-era style hip-hop flavors, and of course, plenty of hooks and beats.
