There’s a new hip-hop/dance hybrid blowing up in the windy city. With a sense of unbridled fun not seen since rap’s golden age, this new crew cherry-picks from two decades of club music, creating a gangsta-free, party-igniting sound that’s made for inciting dance-floor riots.Here, the most promising new jacks — Flosstradamus, the Cool Kids, Dude ‘N Nem, and Kid Sister — throw a kickass house party, while spotlighting spring fashion that’s as vibrant as their music.
