We love how even new mp3 compilations are still referred to as "mixtapes." And here's one for you — just in time to embrace the warmer weather and nurture your anticipation for summer — from none other than Chicago's MC duo the Cool Kids, the boys who've been all the buzz since last year's SXSW fest.

Released today, the Cool Kids' new 21 (count ’em, 21 — 18 of them brand new!) tracks, called "Gone Fishing," are mixed by and feature legendary Atlanta DJ, producer and Gangsta Grillz host, Don Cannon. It's a prelude to the Cool Kids' next CD, "When Fish Ride Bicycles," featuring appearances by Ryan Leslie, GLC, Ludacris, Bun B and newcomers Tennille and Jahda, which they've been working on early this year.

These tracks are very similar but they're not bad, and they'll definitely juice you for summer. Best of all: the download of the whole set is free! Hit it here.
