Kool G Rap is the OG of that fast coke rap shit. This isnt his best but its a cool introduction to his sharp style

Hitmans Diary was crazy
Foul Cats was dope
and Thugs Love STory is great

Roots Of Evil sucked. I didn't like the beats at all. It's a boring album.

thats harsh you are pretty severe though with what you think sucks. All G Rap albums are at least good the beats on 4,5,6 and Wanted:D o A were his best but Dr. Butcher made some tight shit for Roots

I don't have a problem with Kool G Rap's lyrics on the album but the beats sucked. If the beats would've been tight, i would've liked the album. The Giacanna Story album he did after Roots Of Evil is much better.

8/10

G Rap reached a peak on this album, but the guests and beats were garbage for the most part.

Damn shame, could've been another classic.

Great album... G Rap kills it, some of the beats and guests could be better. But overall a excellent album.

8.5/10

Haha, that's awesome how CJ came back like a year later and again stated that the beats are wack.

None of G Rap's solos are all that amazing. It's a good album though. There's a few really good songs, some good ones, and a few skippables.

Finally, someone that agrees with me, "4,5,6" is thought to be some sort of classic here, but to be honest i find it boring and most of the beats bland as fuck.

His best solo album is "Giacanna Story" but none of his albums come anywhere near his shit with DJ Polo. "Road To The Riches" > G Rap's entire post DJ Polo carer.

Damn that's messed up you said 4,5,6 album sucks. That's his best album to me without DJ Polo. 4,5,6, It's A Shame, Take Em To War, For Da Brothas, Blowin Up In The World, Fast Life songs are tight.

I think the problem is that the DJ Polo albums weren't really as cuban as kool g rap could go. He wasn't reaching his potential. 4,5,6 and Roots of Evil were only built 4 cuban linx. I understand that you don't appreciate it.

4,5,6 is banging... what you on about? vintage Kool G.

Word, I can't understand how 4, 5, 6 can NOT be a classic.

what?

Kool G Raps three albums with DJ Polo outshine all his other albums by some distance. wether he was 'cuban' or not, they are far better albums.

4,5,6 is banging... what you on about? vintage Kool G.

Word, I can't understand how 4, 5, 6 can NOT be a classic.

Ok, maybe i need to give "4,5,6" another listen, but i really dont think its the classic you make out out to be.
