The $hoots – How Are You

A few months back I got excited about The $hoots, a Chicago-based hip-hop collective that made effortless rapping sound authentic.  On “How Are You”, the crew continues to impress with their reintroduction of the kind of “cool” that deserves quotes.  It takes over a minute before the first voice graces the jazzy instrumental, and even then, it’s just the group hardly breathing an infectious hook.  “Feeling good, feeling great, feeling great, feeling good, how are you?” The first proper verse arrives at 1:30 and by then the feels have already taken over.
