Mikey Rocks, one half of the Cool Kids, has been teasing this project since last summer when he began dropping off tracks and videos for “Deal Went Sour” and “Foreign Features”. It wasn’t clear then just where they would end up, but the Chicago-based rapper would soon announce that he had a mixtape, The Rocks Report, in the works. This, of course, would serve as a pseudo-accompaniment to the forthcoming Cool Kids album, When Fish Ride Bicycles. Mikey’s got quite the lineup in store for his solo mixtape debut, as he’s joined by Pac Div’s Like and Mibbs, Trademark Da Skydiver, and Phil Ade. The production here is handled by Madlib, Ski Beatz, and others.
