It seemed like only yesterday that yebe SoulDaddy was singing and tapping his crayons on his desk, yebe SwingMaster was freestyling about elmers glue and milk and cookies, and yebe HoneyWell watched on from the corner where he was sentenced to everyday. James Cobbins and his 65 lb Carp caught in Marquette Park In 1997, 11 years, thousands of hours of t.v and movies, plenty of mischief and a whole childhood later, they started a band called the endorphins under their real names Mark (Swing), Chris(Soul) and Ryan(Honey). Soon after, they developed an obsesive and loyal fan base. Until early 2001, they had released 9 cassete tapes full of original songs and skits that were thoroughly enjoyed by all.
But Mark, Chris and Ryan knew when enough was enough. They called it quits soon after their most acclaimed album, Colorblind(which featured a cover photo of them with the African-American Santa Claus in the Evergreen Plaza). They wanted to shoot the game winning shot over Byron Russells head and walk away at the peak of their game. This only created further demand for art that came from their cerebreal cortexes. The trio realized this and they invented something called a Fall Video.
Chris and Ryan dressed up in business suits and mark dressed up as a federal express worker. They went to downtown Chicago at lunchtime during the work week with their video camera and taped themselves running into walls, newspaper stands, mailboxes and any other solid objects they could find. The hilarious results were 3 assholes fooling the white collar work force of downtown Chicago. Keep in mind this is before Jackass and other Jackass type shows became popular. Then, in the summer of 2002, Mark, Chris, and Ryan started The Chi-Town kids.
Started as another hillarious side project, the demand was overwhelming. The release "White Boys Shmite Boys" (released on the record lable that they started, Table Cat Records) recieved hella praise from everyone who heard it. These 21 year old white kids from the south side of Chicago plan to continue representing their city and popculture with humorous rap for a long time to come. Even though they thank their childhood, their neighborhood and popular culture for the success of The Chi-Town kids, they know without their fans, none of this would be possible. Mark, Chris, and Ryan thank everyone who has ever listened to or watched their ground breaking artistic abilities.
They especially thank you for reading this right now. Chi-Town kids for life. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
