rope chain $piller kidz: super chain herope

dl: ROPE CHAIN $PILLER KIDZ - Super Chain HeRope (Z)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Swanzy, Margreezy, and Bishara rep for the UK with a sound they designate as a mix of "old skool garage, grime, hip-hop" with a "splash of indie, rock, pop, trance, funk". As the Rope Chain $piller Kidz, they rock a style akin to Run DMC meets Gossip Girl (with a dash of neon). I almost thought that their giant dookie chains were a little gimmicky, but then I thought to myself that the world could use a few more musical groups that could double as gangs in The Warriors. And with influences like Salt 'N Pepa, Queen Latifah, TLC, Naughty By Nature and DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, it's not about gimmicks as much as taking it back to a time when hip-hop was more fun.

"Super Chain HeRope" is essentially the group's unofficial theme song, on which the three ladies bust out simple ol' skool flows over an electro-grime track. I'm not one to be lured in by British accents, yet there's something charming about the Spiller Kidz' conversational style.

The group seems relatively new, but with a track featuring Afrikan Boy (as heard on M.I.A.'s "Hussel" and Da Drought 3) they seem to be in good company. And while today they still may be fabulous and undiscovered, I can't imagine them staying underground for much longer.
