The Cool Kids Embarking on 2011 US Tour
Hey rap fans! Cool off this summer with Chicago's own the Cool Kids as they are headed to a city near you.
The rap duo -- Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks -- are headlining an 11-date North American tour in support of their latest album, 'When Fish Ride Bicycles.' The cool trek kicks off July 23 in Ocean City, Md., and wraps up in Cleveland on Aug. 14 with more dates to be added in the future.
The Cool Kids are stoked about the music featured on the LP, including two songs produced by the Neptunes. When I walked in there," recalls Chuck about his first meeting with the Neps' Pharrell Williams, "the first thing I said was, 'Yo, I want [Clipse's] 'Doorman' [beat] and I want the beat from 'Grindin'' together as a baby. And [Pharrell] was like, 'That's what you do, dog. I'm trying to do something else.' And I'm telling you, I didn't want to hear that; but now when you listen to the record with those two songs the s--- is like balanced."
