Album Review

The production lineup for Riches, Royalty & Respect is not quite as impressive as that of 2007’s Half a Klip, which boasted DJ Premier. G Rap instead leans on beats from a assortment of up-and-comers while enlisting DJ Supa Dave, the Alchemist, and career-long associate Marley Marl. Although G Rap's flow is not as energizing as it once was — it now packs a heft that is both considerable and measured — he can still spin a tale, draw up a fleshed-out concept, and epitomize hardcore rap as well as any MC half his age. The rugged and more dramatic beats — “In Too Deep,” “Sad,” and the Havoc-assisted “American Nightmare” — bring out the best in G Rap. His mere presence is enough to carry the weaker tracks.

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).
