In what was almost a simultaneous drop, Cool Kids duo Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish have both released wavy solo videos in anticipation of what we’re guessing could be a hint at some more collaborative work between the pair on the horizon. Originally meeting through Myspace (back when that was actually still a thing) the two found fame and respect within the community via a number of successful mixtapes and their debut album When Fish Ride Bicycles.

Sir Michael Rocks – “Pull Up”
After causing a stir on April Fools day with a spoof announcement that he’d be quitting rap in favor of hosting his own David Attenborough style wildlife show, Cool Kid member Sir Michael Rocks is back from jammin’ with Mother Nature to release new visuals for “Pull Up”, the first cut from his upcoming Populair project. For some reason this track reminds us of the old Wiz Khalifa classic for “Roll Up” (just a completely unrelated side note), and Michael has called upon Jimmy Regular to produce the winter-themed video, which ironically he did actually team up with National Geographic to produce (so expect fur coats and icebergs). The IndigoChildRick produced instrumental has a raw and retro feel to it, and this track has us extremely excited for what is on the horizon from Michael.
Chuck Inglish – “DAMAGE”
In what was an almost simultaneous drop with other half of The Cool Kids duo Sir Michael Rocks‘ new video “Pull Up”, Michigan’s Chuck Inglish dropped new audio and visuals for “DAMAGE”. After the release of his debut solo album Convertibles back in 2014, there are rumors that this new track is the first cut off a new solo project scheduled for release in the next few months (information on this is vague so far, though). Collaborating once again with GL-JOE (who has worked on a number of The Cool Kids videos), the visuals put Michael in his finest attire for a sun-soaked 80’s feeling video that has us excited for summer. Fans of older Cool Kids work will appreciate this track as it replicates a more minimalist sound than Inglish’s more recent releases.
