Underground Chicago Hip Hop duo, The Cool Kids, released their long waited debut studio album When Fish Ride Bicycles through Green Label Sounds Records in 2011. The Cool Kids consist of producer Chuck Inglish and rapper Sir Michael Rocks.
When Fish Ride Bicycles features production from Chuck Inglish, Travis Barker and The Neptunes, along with guest appearances from Ghostface Killah, Asher Roth, Bun B, Mayer Hawthorne and Travis Barker. The album had numerous delays in production and was pushed back to 2011 even though it was said to be finished in early 2009.
In the album, The Cool Kids stray from their usual minimal 80’s rap retro feel to more of an 80’s funk vibe. The Cool Kids have received comparisons to the likes of De La Soul, OFWGKTA and N.E.R.D.
