[music] The Cool Kids - 88

"The Cool Kids flex a new rap language, inciting both new and old hip-hop heads to exclaim, "The don't make songs like this anymore." With all its golden age signifiers - the knocking beats, the "yes yes y'all" chants, the guitar slabs - the Cool Kids show immense affection for rap's magical year of 1988. 88 makes the old school futuristic with Mikey and Chuck going sick over cyborg drum breaks, which brings up the question: Are they indeed rapping about 1988 or reporting from the future and reflecting back on 2088? Decide for yourself." -- iTunes Store

As a HS grad in '88, this brought back serious memories and soem nostalga for the good ol' days of rap => RUN DMC, early Kool J, De La Soul, EPMD... yes y'allers fo real. When rap was really good.. now it's all been done and re-done.

Enjoyed it, FunkStroBrotha
