Their drums are nice and they use live instrumentation.



You didn't like R.E.K.S, SPTA or Oneirology?

it's Spin, not the Source. of course their list is going to suck. but at least they don't get caught up in the mainstream shit. still, Rae's Shaolin vs. WU-Tang is top 10 for sure. good thing I didn't see any Mac Miller on there

oh and this is the hip hop album of 2011

The greatest rapper who ever copped to working at Key Food in rhyme, Queens legend Kool G Rap claimed his best work back in hip-hop's fabled late-'80s Golden Age. His 2011 reintro may be centered around Blaxploitation-era tropes, but at no point does a man who's been cited as an influence by Jay-Z and Biggie sound outdated. Kool G Rap still kicks cinematic street sermons with aplomb and tricky rhyme schemes, but here the intensity of his flow is smartly tempered by production that samples from '70s soul. It's hip-hop embracing nostalgia in the right way
Another person that clearly hasn't listened to much of Kool G's early material. Kool G released one album in the '80s. Yeah, "Road to the Riches" is a good album, but better than "Wanted: Dead or Alive" or "Live and Let Die" which both came out in the early '90s?

I know "better/best" is a matter of opinion, but it isn't even subjective that his flow got more complex, his storytelling more detailed, and his album concepts more and more in-depth and consistent on subsequent releases. Those things might not necessarily make a better album, but it's like half the people that mention Kool G seem to think he's primarily an '80s rapper (is it just because he was a Juice Crew member?) or that he didn't release anything noteworthy after "Road to the Riches."

For some reason, mainstream (mostly older, white) critics have this weird preference for anything that came out in the Golden Age, even if later stuff by that artist is more accomplished, but I've even seen sources claiming that Road to the Riches is the first "mafioso" rap album - there's one fucking song on that album that would qualify! If you aren't going to mention "Live and Let Die" (or haven't even listened to it) don't even bother writing about Kool G Rap's career.
