There's Still Good Hip Hop Week - The Cool Kids

The thing about hip hop is that it's an open secret that it has been on a consistent downward trajectory since its high water mark in around 1993. But you could say the same about me, so let's not rub it in. Just like me, hip hop remains capable of tossing up moments of unique and cheery splendour. Although the Cool Kids have a crappy name, and are always mentioned in the same breath as the Beastie Boys even though they sound nothing like them, their album was a cheeky, bass filled, low end firecracker, which even more remarkably has no skits, and comes in in super quick listening time, beating the current world record for a hip hop album by a staggering 42 minutes.
