A certified G Rap classic has made its way to the latest installment of Vin Rican‘s Wax Only series.
Flipping through the classic samples used on Kool G Rap‘s “4,5,6” solo debut album, Rican showcases the sounds used on the 1995 Cold Chillin’ Records project. Much known as an underground classic for many hip-hop heads, the project marked Kool G’s departure as one half of the Kool G Rap and DJ Polo duo as well as his distancing from the Juice Crew.
The album recruited the likes of Nas for the single “Fast Life,” as well as MF Grimm and B-1 on “Take ‘Em To War.” The album highlights much of G Rap’s urban street game experience and the use of classic samples assists in this consistent theme.
Vin highlights samples which include tracks from the soulful sounds of Southside Movement, Bobby Caldwell’s “What You Won’t Do For Love, Surface’s “Happy,” and many more.
