Kids These Days - Talent Doesn't Check ID
Tuesday, November 01, 2011

In hip-hop the youth can oftentimes get a bad rap (pun intended). As soon as an artist like Soulja Boy arrives on the scene it creates an assumption that young artists aren’t musically viable and have little to offer. The Chicago eight piece outfit Kids These Days prove that assumption to be nothing short of asinine. The group, which recently released their first EP, Hard Times, is made up of trombone player J.P. Floyd, bassist Lane Beckstrom, drummer Greg Landfair Jr., trumpet player Nico Segal, emcee Vic Mensa, vocalist/keyboardist Macie Stewart, guitarist/vocalist Liam Cunningham, and sax player Rajiv Halim (pictured L to R), all of whom range in age from 18 to 19. Their style incorporates elements of hip-hop, jazz, funk, blues and soul, and is really something amazing to hear. I caught up with Mensa and Beckstrom to find out more about the group, including how they came together, why they released an EP rather than a full length album, and why, no matter how old they get, they don’t plan on changing the name of the group.
