Chicago rap duo The Cool Kids have announced the first installment of their new triple album titled Before Shit Got Weird. The album is set to be released on March 3, 2022. The duo has also shared three new tracks: “Its Yours pt. 2,” “All or Nothing” and “Hibachi.” The triple album is set to include solo albums from both members Chuck Inglish and Sir Michael Rocks.
The first part of the album will be a group album, featuring JID, Guapdad 4000, Key!, Larry June, 6lack and Chance The Rapper. Before Shit Got Weird is fully produced and mixed by half of The Cool Kids, Chuck Inglish.
Chuck Inglish’s sound combines old-school 90’s rap drum rhythms with modern sounds, weird synth basses and a unique assortment of effects. The best example of this is on the track “All Or Nothing” with Larry June. Inglish gives Larry June a west coast style beat full with California drum fills, high-pitched synths and a straight trap beat. Much of the style is similar to N.E.R.D’s production but the vocals are a lot more rap focused.
This is the latest Cool Kids album since the release of Special Edition Grand Master Deluxe in 2017.
