Kool G. Rap Signs With Who?

g-rap.jpg 

Kool G Rap went and signed with some indie West Coast label I never heard of in my life:

Hip-Hop pioneer Kool G Rap has signed a recording deal with Stockton, Calif.,-based Back Route Records and is set to release his next album Uncontrolled Substance.

The rapper, who has released classic albums like 1988’s Road to the Riches, 1990’s Wanted: Dead or Alive and 1995’s 456, decided on Back Route after hearing about the independent label’s CEO Jamez "Jamez Bomb" Rosado.

I say good for him. At least it’s not G-Unit. I wonder if my open letter had anything to do with it. (I just reread that, and damn I hated G-Unit back then. It’s really not even that serious anymore.)

Independent is probably the best route for him anyway considering the aversion today’s music consumers seem to have to rap music that is, you know, actually good.

    LOL

  3. iLL Change Says:

    G Rap is ill tho, “Fast Life” has some of the craziest G rhymes ever. and that beat is hot too.

  4. Boosie Says:

    g rap too bull headed to sign with g-unit. It was understandable for mop, bu never with G rap. As far as on the lyrical tip he might be top 5, but biggie had him beat in other categories though.

  5. iLL Change Says:

    as long as this label doesn’t tell him what to do, i think he’ll be str8. i hope he gets some Preemo beats. did y’all hear him on “5 Deadly Venoms”? oh my god.

  6. iLL Change Says:

    he’s kept his flow tight over the years. he’s been spittin’ the same crazy shit every year. his verse on Mobb Deep’s “The Realest” was mad good.

  7. iLL Change Says:

    @ eskay
    i dont think you should give every new song it’s own post. it’s better when you put like 6 new songs all in one thread.

  8. eskay Says:

    i agree

  9. Shanti Says:

    that open letter was so funny

  10. iLL Change Says:

    whatup Shanti. what happened to kween? she ain’t been here in a while

  11. Shanti Says:

    i was wonderin the same thing. i don’t know where she’s been. maybe she’s on punishment and can’t use the computer (j/k kween–if you’re out there somewhere lurking)

    Always down with G.Rap, so glad it ain’t G-Unit

  14. Robbie Says:

    Wasn’t G selling verses on Myspace for $1,500 at one stage?

    Anythings gotta better than what happened at Rawkus – they signed him for his street shit but then tried to make him go pop.

  15. L.P.CROOKS Says:

    I always wondered why the legends dont just walk in DR.DRE office or scarface or even RMG…some one had to be a fan back in the day and willin to give them a deal

  16. bulletproof wallets Says:

    biggie and 95% of other post-1992 rappers wouldn’t know who to spit if it wasn’t for g rap, rakim and kane. bar-none, one of the most influential dudes, even though some young kids probably don’t know who the fuck he is .

    inspectah deck already made an album called uncontrolled substance….

  17. Fuck FAG-Unit Says:

    Fuck G-Unit!

  18. Damon Flash Says:

    The old school cats of hip hop should come together to do a collab album. I bet that shit would be fire.

  19. T. Okes Says:

    G Rap’s one of the GOAT

  20. 456 Says:

    G-Rap paved the way for countless niggas in the game. Ghostface is his closest approximation.

  21. illstown Says:

    no hate, but didnt inspectah deck drop an album called uncontrolled substance already?

  22. Demiks Says:

    >> I always wondered why the legends dont just walk in DR.DRE office

    Because it’s a stupid move. See; Rakim.

    Posted In: Columnists, It Is What It Is by Elliott Wilson

    It’s up there with that infamous photo of a young Prodigy at dance class. A magazine ad where Death Row’s Suge Knight is holding you know who’s son with the caption: We take care of our own. The episode of 106 and Park where Cash Money’s Baby kissed his young artist Lil Weezy right on the lips. Things we’ve heard about it but aren’t sure that they actually ever happened because we didn’t witness and/or see it.
    Well you can scratch Game’s Change of Heart appearance off the list. Thanks to the new Rap Insider DVD. Wonder who would benefit from putting out a product like this? Things that make you go hmmmm. Anyway, this shit is for the most part hella boring with a White boy in a terrible disguise on the hunt for the Game’s Change of Heart footage. You are better served returning to the menu and just going right to the shit.
    Now for the first time here’s your definitive episode guide to the muthafuckin’ thing we’ve heard about for so muthafuckin’ long.
    Show Begins
    At least we know Game hasn’t lied about his name. He’s referred to in the show as JT. (The government is Jayceon Taylor, stupid!) Ironically, it was another JT that got Chuck Taylor’s career started: JT Tha Bigga Figga. Game recognize game.
    JT is rockin’ a gray and white Hawaian shirt. Eat your heart out, Jigga.
    His ladyfriend is Sadita. Also on the show is their mutual female friend Rikki. I don’t know if I’m spelling the ladies’ names right. There’s no kryons, morons.
    JT complains about breaking his back for his girl and getting nothing in return.
    Rikki accuses JT of buying Sadita’s love. Flowers, shoes, clothes, everything.
    Sadita accuses JT of smothering her and he “cries like a baby.”
    JT quotes Heavy D “I got nuthin’ but love for her.”
    Sadita says he acts extra macho but it’s an act. He’s more sensitive than Ralph T.
    JT says Sadita is first woman he’s cared about—period.
    Sadita says JT wants to be with her 24/7. He responds by playfully cuddling her on the couch.
    JT cosigns “I wanna be with my girl, all day, everyday.”
    Ricky says Sadita uses JT. He co-signs. She says she “tries to get what she can get.”
    JT calls Sadita a promise breaker. Ouch!
    JT complains of no PDA with his main squeeze.
    Sadita says JT always has to prove to his friends that she’s with him.
    Rikki says they’re inseperable and they bring brightness into her life and everyone else’s life. Ahhh!
    Sadita says JT will do anything for her. If she told him to go outside naked with a leash on—he’d do it.
    Sadita says JT’s sensitive for the 76th time and says he likes to send flowers—just ’cause.
    Why did they come to show?
    Sadita just got over 5 year relationship with someone and wants to make sure she can be committed to someone like that again. Now, I ain’t saying she’s a gold digger…
    JT says he called the show because they were developing feelings really fast and he wanted to see how solid his love for Sadita really was.
    JT’s date
    Her name is Arana. Again who knows how the heffa spells it.
    Game give the redbone a tight hug.
    Sadita says Arana looks just like she’d be just as conceited as JT.
    JT insisted Arana not be late for their date.
    JT likes Arana’s ass.
    Arana likes JT’s ass.
    She walked in on JT with his pants down and “he did Calvin Klein justice.”
    JT took Arana to a Chinese buffet. She brought his napkins, his food, and refilled his drinks.
    Sadita says JT does that for her.
    JT told Arana that Sadita is unaffectionate and only time she comes around is when she wants to go shopping or needs a little bit of money.
    JT told Arana that Sadita is very jealous, very possessive and very mean. And if he looks at another female she socks him in the ribs.
    JT really likes Arana’s “bangin’ booty.”During date, Arana hugged JT. It was the warmest embrace he ever felt in his life.
    Arana loves candy.
    Sadita says JT has a candy drawer. She admits she steals from it.
    OK here’s juicy part:
    JT wanted Arana to meet his mom at her club. She didn’t know it was a strip club. She walks in and is in shock when she sees a butt-naked man on stage pouring something down his chest. It’s not JT.
    JT said he was gonna show Arana his moves later on that night.
    They kissed at JT’s friend’s house. Arana gives JT a thumbs up in the kiss dept.
    JT says the date lasted approximately a “whoppin’ 14 hours.”
    They watched the sun rise together.
    We don’t see ole girl’s date
    Decision time
    Rikki thinks they should stay together.
    JT says his date with Arena is the most fun he’s ever had in his life but his heart is with Sadita. So he wants to stay together.
    Sadita says she hoped that this experience would teach JT a lesson so she has a Change of heart.
    YN’s conclusion
    There it is baby doll. Hate it or love it. I think all this is embarrassing, but this ain’t career damaging to The Game. He’s not the first rapper to do something he wished would stay in the closet. As long as dude doesn’t catch the sophomore jinx he’ll be good to go. I got the fingers crossed. We could use another true rap superstar. Let’s get this cover poppin’!

    wait a minute.. how the hell is he gonna call his album “uncontrolled substance”?? Didnt Inspektah Deck name his first album that?? WTF

    ^ Plus, Saigon was sayin’ on a dvd that Mos Def was eating up most of the budget over at Rawkus. They catered to him more than any other artist on the label.

    dumb move……expect a fucking collaboration with lil eazy, the lame gaYme, ice t, yukmouth, ect etc……eh!

    —————————–

    ….most definitely he did (1999)…

  31. Fred Says:

    I don’t think it’s very likely he would move Fiddy and Eminem figures at this point in his carear anyway, so by this at least he won’t piss off his fanbase.

    Yo, referring bulletproof’s statement:

    ————-

    Striaght up FACT man. G Rap is the architect of gangsta rap, and whats more is wen he started out, it was totally fresh and original, not to mention better than so much shit that came after him.

    I think whether or not he’s Top 5 is no question, he definitely is.

    If anyone disputes that, then please list who you DO think is Top5 dead or alive???

  33. Dr Flav Says:

    Biggie Couldn’t Hold G Rap Drawers. One Of The Reasons I Always Disagreed With Fools Calling Him Jay Z Nas Pac Or Many Other Of These Late Cats. G Overcame His Lisp, Even Though I Felt It Made His Flow More Deadly, To Continue To Master His Flow. Storyteller With Flavorfull Visuals. Wanted Dead Or Alive, ( Introduced Of To Freddie Foxx Aka Bumpy Knucks) Best G Rap Album Next To Live And Let Die ( East Coast Lyrics, West Coast Beats= Ground Breaking). Wasnt Deck Album Called Uncontrollable Substance?

  34. Dr Flav Says:

    Yeah It Was Bitten, I Hope Somebody Tell That Man Before They Officially Release It, Maybe I Can Send An Email. Lol

  35. Dr Flav Says:

    Yeah It Was Bitten, I Hope Somebody Tell That Man Before They Officially Release The Album, Maybe I Can Send An Email. Lol

  36. Chicago Ron Says:

    Kool G Rap is the best entertainer ever. I have been listening to rap music for over 20 years and there is nobody even 2 levels behind G. I am really amazed that G Rap aint selling more records. Lyrically his shit is amazing. I am truly amazed that his shit gets better every time I hear him. Click Of Respect album was the best shit I have heard in years. Ma Barker is a better rapper than 99% of people rapping now. The whole Five Family Click is nice 40 Cal is fire. It is really sad that people do not buy talent. People buy image and marketing plays a huge part in record sales not talent. I wish G Rap all the luck in the world with the new company and I will always support you. You are the only entertainer not rapper because you surpassed that long ago that puts his all into his music on a consistent basis. You are the best ever bar none. I think your shit is above a lot of people heads.
