Chicago rap duo the Cool Kids became one of the most hyped new acts of recent months thanks to their self-released debut single, "Black Mags." The track has enjoyed nearly a million plays on Cool Kids' MySpace page, with the video garnering more than 600,000 views on YouTube. The latter features black-and-white footage of Cool Kids Mickey Rocks and Chuck Inglish riding their tricked-out bicycles around the Windy City. The song's a detailed homage to BMXs delivered over minimal, bass-heavy beats that hark back to the hip-hop of the '80s and early '90s.
