We're not sure if there's a clause in <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/sir-michael-rocks">Sir Michael Rocks'</a> Jet Life contract that ensures he bathes in 24-hour moisturizer or if he just happens to record in a Big Daddy Kane's closet, but these two new releases from The Cool Kid are about as smooth as it gets.

Sir Michael Rocks – The Rocks Report

By | 8 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/sir-michael-rocks-coochie-crook-video"> There was a time about two years ago when The Cool Kids could do no wrong. However, that time's long since passed as the CK masses wait--without held breath--for any sight or sound of When Fish Ride Bicycles. Since disgruntled fans can sample Mr. Inglish's production tastes on the latest Chip Tha Ripper and Mac Miller mixtapes, Sir Rocks is dishing out his solo debut mixtape, The Rocks Report, to satiate the crowds and keep his name relevant. The skinnier half of CK teams with <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/ski-beatz">Sensei Beatz</a>, Trademark Da Skydiver, Phil Adé and Madlib to invigorate Rock's always-hubristic lines.

Pulled Over By The Cops (The Cool Kids, Freddie Gibbs, Chip Tha Ripper) – “Authority”

By | 7 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/freddie-gibbs-feat-chuck-inglish-chip-tha-ripper-bun-b-and-dan-auerbach-oil-money-video"> Driving home from the bars is always risky business. Watch the swerves, the speed and the road. Always search not only for the median but also the crow-black squad cars that line the perimeters of the highway. The minute those red and blue lights start flickering, a few Hail Marys and a quick practice of the alphabet backwards are the only two options that keep a potential visit to the slammer from happening. Listening to the new Hip-Hop super-group, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/pulled-over-by-the-cops">Pulled Over By The Cops</a> - consisting of The Cool Kids, Freddie Gibbs, Chip Tha Ripper and Bun B periodically - marks the complete antithesis of making those ballsy, inebriated drives back home.

“Do It Big” – Review Of Ski Beatz’ 24 Hour Karate School

By | 24 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/the-cool-kids-x-stalley-we-can-do-it-big-video"> As late career renaissances go, Ski Beatz’ has to be one of the most unexpected. Nevertheless, the man behind “Dead Presidents” rise from the ashes has nothing to do with luck, but rather an ability to consistently craft pristine tracks for young MCs like Curren$y and Jay Electronica. Having gotten his mojo back, Beatz steps out of the background and into the spotlight with his own album, 24 Hour Karate School. The result is easily one of best exhibitions of the year. Over a fast moving twelve tracks, Beatz establishes himself as a master of many styles, adept at transitioning between different sounds. The mournful horns of opener “<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/ski-beatz-feat-curreny-smoke-dza-nothin-but-us-video">Nothing But Us</a>” bleed beautifully into the rough dissonance of “Go,” as Ski Beatz enlists the odd combination of Jim Jones and Curren$y to give the album some guttural flavor.
