When Fish Ride Bicycles

Hailed three years ago as leaders of rap’s latest new school, this easygoing Chicago duo are just now getting around to releasing their full-length debut. But if the Cool Kids aren’t quite as buzzy as they once were, their skills are tighter than ever. Rappers Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks are a pair of mellow charmers, trading good– humored boasts about cars and clothes—and, remarkably, holding their own alongside heavyweight guests like Ghostface Killah (“Penny Hardaway”) and Bun B (“Gas Station”). Inglish’s work as the primary producer behind the album’s head-cracking beats and sleek electro flourishes is even more impressive.
