Fans of The Cool Kids: prepare for some bad news. Sir Michael Rocks has revealed that his duo will not be releasing another album anytime soon.
During an interview with AllHipHop, the Jet Life rapper said that he and Chuck Inglish got caught up in industry politics with Cool Kids and are currently focusing on their solo careers. “[W]e still work together in a lot of different facets,” he said. “We shoot music videos, work on beats, we’re still working together, but we’re just not making music and putting it out together as a group, because it’s not that time right now.”
Mikey explained that the era where they defined their sound has passed and it would be reductive to return to that style. He said that the two need to figure out their personal sound on their own, but that they still could one day come back together to make more Cool Kids music.
“You break us up, we’re still going to turn out nice as fuck separately, and when we come together, we transition that energy into making a dope record. Right now, man, I think we just need to be focusing on blowing up. Chuck needs to focus on his production; I need to focus on my solo stuff because it’s a different atmosphere, it’s a different feel when we’re separate than when we’re together. I think that, now, we need to be working on the music separately, but we still working together like nothing ever happened. But just as far as how we putting it out, we’re gonna put it out like this, and fuck everybody else.”
