Joe Cool
“Space Shuttle”

New Orleans up-and-comer Joe Cool bears no physical resemblance to Snoopy’s alias of the same name, but he’s a far superior rapper: a little bit sultry, plenty spry, and perhaps most refreshingly, socially conscious. His short-but-sweet take on the Scarface classic “Space Shuttle” includes commentary on electoral apathy, vengeful boyfriends, and the sad fact that “the teachers make less money than the trash man.” Cool’s new mixtape, Driver’s Ed, comes out in December.
