The "Hot Cheetos and Takis" kids are back with a new summer snack.

Minneapolis' lovable Y.N.RichKids, a group of after-school club grade-school rappers whose catchy 2012 ditty "Hot Cheetos & Takis" drew national attention, has released another song.

This time, they are giving us "The Business." This tune features another catchy groove – and positive messages about getting your homework done:

See I can rap all day
'bout how I'm spittin' rhymes
swagged out and gettin' money
but my mama don't care,
'cuz she won't think it's funny
if I got bad grades
my days would not be sunny

The video (above) was shot on location at the state Capitol, among other places.

Y.N.RichKids grew out of the Beats And Rhymes after-school program at a north Minneapolis YMCA that gave the young artists mentorship and access to equipment to make a rap video – as a reward for doing homework.

Their first song – "Hot Cheetos and Takis" – was the group's biggest hit, with nearly 9 million YouTube views. After the song's release, Huffington Post said "our summer will never be the same," and Spin magazine called it one of the 40 best tunes of the year.

In case you missed it – or maybe you can't get enough – here it is:

The kids had another fun video, "My Bike," released last year and shot partially at Target Field:

The Beats and Rhymes program has been a breeding ground for several other groups, including Da Rich Kidzz, the KIDS, and the NSJ Crew, CityPages notes.
