Kid Static leaks another single off his upcoming It Gleams project, “Rocks & Toothpicks”.
Los Angeles-based Kid Static has been turning hip-hop fans on their collective ear ever since he burst on the Chitown seen a few years back with his hybrid electronihop bounce. A few weeks from now (June 5th if you're into precision) he will release his newest full-length, It Gleams . The latest single from that platter, Rocks & Toothpicks , is a skittering warning to all the fronters on the frontier. And guess what? MOKB's got the premiere for you. MP3 : [...]
Kid Static - It Gleams Self-released: 2012 When I started writing this review for Kid Static’s It Gleams it inadvertently turned more negative than I initially intended . Maybe my post-finals exhaustion didn’t let me accept the album for what it was, or maybe my expectations were skewed by a few days of exclusively listening to new records from Death Grips and El-P. Regardless, I tried seeking out a deeper meaning or purpose that wasn’t entirely popping up. It Gleams is not a game-changing piece of genre redefining music, but it [...]
There's nothing better than our Weekly Download . It's great. You get to peek inside our inbox and listen to songs we like and we were emailed by the bands themselves. Without further ado....

Kid Static leaks the second single off his upcoming It Gleams project, "T-Shirt & Sneakers". "This song is for all the t-shirts and sneakers I own," remarks Static. "Seriously, half my wardrobe is t-shirts, and the other half is sneakers. I have shoes from 2007 that I haven't even worn yet, and that's insane to me."

We have been dying to hear new music from multi-talented Chicago native Kid Static since we caught on his to his superb Hypnotized album last year. So you can imagine my excitement in seeing that dude has a new release on the horizon. It's a full-length effort called It Gleams , which features 11 new tracks from Static, who raps, sings, and produces. You would think one person doing all that work might stretch him too thin and result in mediocre music, but it's quite the opposite. Static is one of [...]

Springtime is here! Well, it's not technically here, of course... but birds are chirping and kids are playing outside of my open window. This weekend, we'll have the pleasure of "springing forward" and gaining a glorious hour of sunshine in exchange for losing an hour of sleep. Also, my allergies are bad right now and I'm home sick in bed. So - technically or not - springtime is here! To celebrate the spring, I made a mixtape for you. It's less than 30 minutes long, so you can fit all of the songs on a single side of [...]
