Kool G Rap loads up his Full Extended Klip
His signature lisp and multisyllabic, occasionally rapid-fire, flow made him one of the most easily recognized and respected emcees to emerge during the golden era of Hip Hop, but unfortunately for fans of classic street narratives like Ill Street Blues and Road To The Riches, Kool G Rap has only released 3 proper full-lengths (95s 4,5,6, 98s Roots Of Evil and 2002s The Giancana Story) since the golden era officially came to a close a little over 15 years ago.
But now the legendary lyricist is planning to follow-up his recently released EP with the LP his die-hard supporters have been anticipating for years. Im working on the Full Extended Klip right now, Kool G Rap tells HipHopDX.com exclusively. Hopefully towards the end of summer [itll drop]. Half A Klip was like an appetizer, just something to keep people knowing that G Rap is still out here, and now Im gonna hit em with a whole nother project.
His 9-cut Half A Klip, released two weeks ago [click here to read review], was just a warm-up for the full lyrical exercise G Rap has planned, an outing he assures fans will not be some repackaged version of his EP with a few additional tracks, but a completely new album with all original material. Its gonna be a whole new jump off, he explains. This was Half A Klip, Im gonna put in a whole different clip now. This is the Full Extended Klip. We might just make these clips a series.
For his Full Extended Klip G Rap plans to reunite with the producers who helmed Half A Klip, Marley Marl, Domingo, and maybe most notably DJ Premier, who constructed the centerpiece of Gs EP, the Haylie Duff-sampling On The Rise Again. In fact, an entire Kool G Rap solo project produced by Premo is not out of the question. Thats something me and Premo gotta sit down and talk about, says G. Thats a whole nother get down right there. But thats something that can definitely be worked out. Its not like its an impossible thing for it to happen, because me and Premo do got a good relationship and a good chemistry together. Its definitely not rocket science that we should be put together.
