The Cool Kids: "Popcorn" and "Champions"

The Cool Kids are making some unbelievably good hip-hop right now. If you don't already have it, get last year's Bake Sale EP which is full of retro beats and summer jams. Later this year, Chuck Inglish and Mickey Rocks are going to release their first LP, When Fish Ride Bicycles. But before that drops there will be a new mixtape "Gone Fishing" which will hit the internet on Monday. Here are the first two leaked tracks "Popcorn" and "Champions." Both are really good, not as mind blowing as When Fish Ride Bicycle's first single "Pennies," yet they should be enough to hold you over until the LPs release.

They haven't released any summer dates yet other than the All Points West Festival in NY but if you get the chance to see them don't miss it. I caught them at last year's Outside Lands festival in SF and their set was one of the most fun of the weekend.

Edit: Here's the full mixtape if you don't already have it
