Debut LP by Chicago based hip hoppers Yea Big & Kid Static

REVIEWS

PITCHFORK
Though their kindred spirits are a little left of traditional notions of hip-hop, Kid Static still lays nimble, easygoing rhymes over the dense and busy production of Yea Big, who also plays the gawky, sweatband-and-gym-short adorned hypeman for Static on stage. Whether you're a fan of glitch-inspired sci-fi rap production or not, Yea Big's work here is a potent argument for continuing to work the niche: it's always chintzy and threatening, robotic and organic, teeth-gritting and head-bobbing all at once.

NEWDUST
It’s pretty much impossible not to like Yea Big + Kid Static‘s brand of fresh, honest-to-goodness hip hop.

MUSIC REMEDY.COM
Yea Big and Kid Static: Future's Looking Grim (7/15/2009) That's right, they're back! They're back with 11 bangy glitchers, full of cacophonous synths, syllabic tumbling and enough boom-bap and flow for even the most staunch heads.

MTV BUZZ BAND
Our favorite-ever thing to come out of the great city of Chicago is, of course, R. Kelly, followed
by Married With Children. Our third-fave is a three-way tie between Kid Sister, remixmasters the Hood Internet, andhot dogs. But competing for one of those slots (probably hot dogs) is Yea Big & Kid Static; the latter is a Southside MC,the former a DJ, and togetherthey're laying down some retronuevo slap-happy geek-hop in the vein of the Cool Kids and Spank Rock


URB
Yea Big and Kid Static are collectively holding the crown for being quite the duo to take their
on the most ultimate musical ecstasy trip. With their current sophomore album The Future's Looking Grim one can expect to hear an eclectic selection of crazy baselines and witty rhymes.

XLR8R (USA)
Yea Big proves to have a firm grasp on that old boom-bap, as heard on the punchy “Speak the
Facts.” And to Static’s credit, he sounds equally inspired by the offbeat productions, like the glitchy The Life Here.” Thanks to these two, Chicago just got a whole lot more to boast about.
