Description
Kool G Rap is simply one of the most masterful rappers - ever. His body of work has served as a major influence on everyone from Nas to Eminem to Action Bronson. Kool Moe Dee once stated that G Rap is "the progenitor and prototype for Biggie, Jay-Z, Treach, Nore, Fat Joe, Big Pun, and about twenty-five more hard-core emcees." And that influence is in both his flow and his subject material.

Though they would later have a major beef, it was Eric B that introduced Kool G Rap to DJ Polo. Marley Marl knew Polo and allowed the pair to use his studio one night in '86. Marley Marl was so impressed with the resulting cut, "It's A Demo", that he immediately bestowed Juice Crew membership on the pair. This of course led to appearances on Mr. Magic's Rap Attack program and the release of "It's A Demo" as a Cold Chillin' 12" with "I'm Fly" on the B Side. Soon after G Rap turned the world on it's ear with his appearance on the ultimate posse cut, "The Symphony" from Marley Marl's epic release "In Control Volume 1." The world was now ready for Kool G Rap & DJ Polo's full-length debut, 1989's "Road To The Riches."

This overview pulled from Kool G Rap & DJ Polo's prime Cold Chillin' material covers all their best: from "It's A Demo" through "Erase Racism" with Big Daddy Kane and Biz, "Rikers Island" (the original 12" mix is found here) through to "Streets Of New York" these street stories are the template that changed the game.
