Kool G Rap Speaks On Mumble Rap, His Album & Tour, And Respect For Sean Price (Video)

I don’t think much of mumble rap, I don’t think highly of it…so many things that young cats are doing have nothing to do with the roots of where this thing started from.
Kool G Rap

Ah! This clip might sting a bit. See, Kool G Rap gets around to [more than] inferring that the surge in popularity of “mumble rap” is the listeners’ fault! Come on… There is a song called “Peek A Boo”… A cat is out here getting MAJOR check from a song called “Peek A Boo.”

Yeah. That’s where we are with the rap that the masses love out here today.

Damn.

(But hey, that new Kool G Rap is LOADED with features from LYRICISTS though… including Sean Price!)

Kool G Rap – “Capitol Hill” feat. Cormega x Sheek Louch x Manolo Rose (Prod. By MoSS)

Most n!ggas ain’t living to see 20 pass…

When you think about the Golden Era Hip-Hop legends who the legends build on, you think about Kool G Rap.

(You probably knew that, but tell somebody who doesn’t know. Promote proper Hip-Hop history.)

Just take that line above and do the math. Nas is a G.O.D.M.C. no d-o-u-b-t. Remember his line from “Illmatic” where he started

I woke up early on my born day
I’m 20. It’s a blessing…

Yeah, 20 years pass and we get that Kool G line above. But ask Nas about G Rap, who came before him, and bet money you hear respect. Reflect on that full circle legend sh!t and puff one if ya got one and get down like that. Do it while playing this “Capitol Hill” (featuring Cormega, Sheek Louch, and Manolo Rose) from the Queens legend Kool G Rap. Single off the forthcoming “Return Of The Don” LP (pre-order link on iTunes below).
