For the record, I don't jump on bandwagons, period. I could care less if Pitchfork or any other rap blog co-signs an artist. I trust my two ears and they have never failed me in my career as a music journalist (well, maybe once or twice, ha!).
The cool folks over at the respectable hip-hop blog Fakeshore Drive put a bug in my ear about this Chi-City rapper named King Louie. He's so cool that's he too cool for school. (I had to say that.)
This is the remix to his hit single "Too Cool" that apparently has Chicago and the Internets going nuts. He grabs fellow rhyme-spitters 2 Chainz and Red Cafe for a south and east coast connection. The track features computer blips and lots of bragging about whips, chips and bitches.
I don't know if this will become a nationwide hit, but it certainly has a lot of bounce to it. I wish him the best on his come up. Get that paper.
