Editors’ Notes

Kool G Rap is a true original. Arguably the godfather of Queens crime rap, he's a lyrical legend whose wordy street narratives have influenced countless rappers. From his early days with Marley Marl and DJ Polo, through his current status as a reclusive icon who still releases albums independently, he has remained true to his craft, reemerging every so often to bless us with his trademark, lisp-addled, machine-gun flows. 4,5,6 was released in 1995, and is a stark slice of ghetto commentary, breaking down the bloody realities of everyday life, set to distinctly NYC-flavored production from Dr. Butcher and Buckwild, among others. Much slower (BPM-wise) than his earlier material, it is short and to-the-point, with 11 tracks of hyper-visual felony rhymes and a few choice guest spots from Nas (on the excellent single "Fast Life") and MF Grimm ("Take Em To War" and "Money On The Brain"). Other winners include the slice of trife life reflections "It's A Shame" and "For Da Brothaz."

Customer Reviews

Great lyrical album

This is a CLASSIC lyrical album by no other than The Kool Genius of Rap. Kool G Rap has a perfected mafioso style on this album and every song proves this mafioso style talkin about dice a fast life and Money On his Brain. This album came out in '95 but is still LIVE today. The beats could b a bit better but they are still pretty solid. It also helps that he picked up NaS to do the song Fast Life where you will find Kool G Rap and NaS trading rhymes over a dope beat. Best Tracks: Fast Life ft. Nas Executioner Style It's A Shame 4,5,6 For Da Brothaz It's hard to pick out 5 Best Tracks because they are all equally amazing.

As part of the golden age MC-and-DJ tandem Kool G Rap & DJ Polo, the "Kool Genius of Rap" enjoyed a successful and, above all, influential run during the late '80s and early '90s before embarking on a fitful solo career. Born Nathaniel Wilson on July 20, 1968, in Queens, New York, Kool G Rap debuted in 1986 on Cold Chillin' Records with the It's a Demo/I'm Fly 12" single, produced by Marley Marl and billed to "DJ Polo & Kool G Rap" (the rapper's name would later come first, before the DJ's).
