Album: NBA 2K9 Soundtrack
Label: C.A.K.E.

Notes: none
Analysis: The Cool Kids have been called a throwback to hip hop artists of the 80s, but that is only true of their sensibilites; rapping about sneakers and having a good time. Because 80s hip hop never knocked like this. With ‘Pennies’, the Cool Kids contribute a basketball anthem with some eerie whistling and the thumpingest bass so far this year. The video is pretty standard, with a few quirky twists: Chuck Inglish chillin’ on top of a pile of leaves on top of a stack of cardboard boxes, and Mickey Rocks walking around with a crocodile head on top of a remote control car on a leash, both come to mind. The dopeness of the song makes it worth a watch, though, and hopefully the Kids can finally put out their full length debut this year.
