Acoustic? A Cool Stick? Unreal

Comin out of Loyola College, Baltimore MA, A Cool Stick is a group of 5 college kids that are putting out a dope combination of hip hop and acoustic sounds. With lively guitar riffs, a distinctive bass line in every song and fresh beats coming from a real drum set, the two rappers in this group stand out in every track they drop. A Cool Stick’s style of music is pretty unique, as a lot of other rappers still don’t use actual musicians on the beat. I love when hip hop takes this direction though because it gives it some much needed credibility as real music, rather rap being seen as spoken word over a beat. Their sound has been compared to The Roots, N.E.R.D, and Asher Roth, so you know you don’t want to miss checking them out.
