Kool G Rap – ‘Return of the Don’

G RAP RETURNThe new album from Kool G Rap finally arrives…and it’s as underwhelming as we feared it would be. Gangster rap is hard to do well, and while G Rap is undoubtedly one of the originators, at least on the East coast, he hasn’t been able to move with the times. His rhymes here sound dated and full of cliché, with none of the finesse of artists like Roc Marciano, Westside Gunn and Conway who do it so well today. The latter two artists manage to save the day on the album closer, Rest in Peace, but there aren’t too many other highlights.
