Much has been made on lyrical legend Kool G Rap’s new album.
Kool G Rap is coming with their new album later this month. The star-studded album is a who’s who of classic hip-hop. Confirmed features include Sean Price, NEMS, AZ, Royal Flush, Al Skratch, Vado, Folkland LOS, AllHipHop co-founder Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur, and others yet to be announced. The project is presented by the National Hip-Hop Museum of DC and exclusively produced by Domingo.
Until now, the cover of the new album was unknown. Insiders said there have been a number of concepts thrown around, but they finally confirmed what direction the rap god wants to go creatively. At this point, Kool G Rap has over 30 years in hip hop. He is a lyricist with few peers. And, at this point in his career, he’s definitely a unique proposition in a rap community awash with young rappers.
So, with an album called The Last of a Dying Breed, he made a statement, bringing his unique touch to the table. Check it out below.
The cover is extremely cinematic, which matches the vibe of KGR’s rap style. The 50-something#### doesn’t try to hide his age or pretend to be something he isn’t. Closer examination shows him holding a Gucci bag, with a chunky chain and his basic Carhartt jacket.
G Rap, Slick Rick, Whodini, Diamond D, Speech and UTFO (RIP Kangol Kid) will all be honored by the National Hip-Hop Museum in Washington, DC on the day the album is released later this year. “As the founder (of NHHM), I feel compelled to research and find projects that best preserve and honor iconic MCs like Kool G Rap,” Beaver said in a statement.
