Once Kool G Rap moved on from his contract with Cold Chillin’, they employed their standard “squeeze the Juice” tactics and released a flawed greatest hits (Killer Kuts) LP and then the Rated XXX album, which was a collection of twelve inches, sex raps and some remixes of old demos. One of the highlights was “Enter The Dragon”, which had previously been leaked on radio years earlier and now appeared with a new beat. While I recall the original track being a lot better, the verbal display found here is classic Kool Genius wordplay.
This was the only thing off the Whoo Kid and G Rap mixtape that really made a lasting impression – G reveals his love for Eddie Vedder‘s crew while Scram Jones drops a shout to his “Whitesnake”.
KGR kicks this ill triple-candence style while rhyming “night” for almost two minutes on this suprise highlight from his outta state Roots of Evil project.
Dr. Butcher has long been the unofficial third member of Kool G Rap & DJ Polo (“Butcher’s Shop”, anyone?), and his mid-nineties beats often made Buckwild‘s tracks of the period seem cheery by comparison. If there’s a better example of hardcore ’94 gutter rap around, it most likely involved either G or the good doctor.
There’s more to G’s resume than just gun talk and bragging – dude also has a twisted sense of humor. His tirade against cock blockers is easily the most hilarious song about failed attempts to smash somethin’ in recent memory (actually, ever) as Sir Jinx‘s cartoonish, sound-effect riddled track brings home our frustrated hero’s tales of untapped ass (no Marv Albert).
