Sir Michael Rocks recently took his talents to South Beach, and I can’t say I blame him as Winter has begun edging its way into my Midwestern life. While down in sunny Miami, he linked up with his neighbor, Pouya, for some fun and music which culminated in this one-off collaborative mixtape, Gookin’ released today. For his part, Mikey Rocks has been a staple of Chicago hip-hop since coming out with Chuck Inglish as one half of The Cool Kids. Since then, he has come and gone from several situations, seeming to have trouble finding solid footing in the sudden rush of talent that has burst from Chicago lately. Perhaps the move south was a good thing, as we find Sir Michael hitting his groove on this project that is a hark back to the fun old times of The Cool Kids. Production on the six-song EP goes to Kodyak, Trill Spector, Eric Dingus, Raiden and DJ Smokey. In an interview with the Miami New Times last month he described the project’s loose feel: “It’s more on the fun side. As homies, ‘Oh, you want to do a track? Yeah, let’s do it.’ And fucking laugh in the studio, bring some bitches through and just chill.” Check it out for yourself here and pick it up for $2.99 at BandCamp.

Sir Michael Rocks is no stranger to introducing the world to his friends through music. As he did with Tris J and Shorty K in the past, Rocks puts us on to yet another carefree emcee today with Pouya. As we learned from his Twitter, Mikey moved down to Miami not that long ago, and Florida rapper Pouya happened to live around the corner from his new place. Apparently the two hit it off, and got to having some fun in the form of recording a new mixtape. The result, entitled Gookin', hit the 'net today and features production from Kodyak, Trill Spector, Eric Dingus, DJ Smokey and Raiden. Listen to the new 6-track project below, or add it to your collection here.

The Cool Kids are back! Well, technically Mikey simply collaborated with Chuck Inglish on the latter’s latest single from his forthcoming album Convertibles and both have stated multiple times that they each are focusing on their individual projects. Still, we’ll take “Swervin’” as a win for the group’s fans and this banger will surely hold us over for some time.
Chuck Inglish and Sir Michael Rocks are here back together again on one of the more anticipated tracks from Chuck's forthcoming solo effort, Convertibles. Of course handling the instrumentation himself, the rapper/producer also flows over-top the bouncy production, alongside his former crew member Mikey Rocks. Does this take you back to better days of The Cool Kids? Regardless, you can enjoy the familiar tandem's new work below. Chuck Inglish's upcoming project is to arrive in the fall. Stay tuned for more.

Raider Klan standout Denzel Curry here links with fellow Floridian Nell as well as Sir Michael Rocks on this new triple threat release, dubbed "Shepherd." The collaborative cut acts as the first taste from Ashley Outrageous' forthcoming The Playlist Vol. 3 compilation. The menacing number was produced by Nuri and Poshstronaut, as we see each young rhymer spitting hot heat over-top the haunting instrumental. Expect AO's The Playlist Vol. 3 mixtape to arrive towards the end of this month.
