Kool A.D. – DOPE (Album Stream)

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

I was starting to worry about Kool A.D. because it’s been a good three months since he last dropped an album. As it turns out, my worries were premature as he’s back today with 10 new tracks in the form of his latest project, DOPE. According to him, these are leftovers from another 100-track marathon tape that he’s been working on, his fourth such project since the end of 2015. Which begs the question, what is the criteria for a song not making a 100-track project? Sheesh.

In any event, continue below to stream DOPE in full and watch the new video for the title track.

One thing about Kool A.D., he’s gonna hit you in the head whether you’re expecting it or not. Today he delivers 16 new tracks on his latest album, Sky Ladder, which I literally just found out about a half an hour ago. The project is mostly a solo affair with a lone guest appearance from Killer Mike on the incredibly tough “Fuck That”.

Here’s Kool A.D. Watching Action Bronson Watching Ancient Aliens

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

“It ain’t aliens, it’s brilliant brown people you piece of shit!”

The kids over at VICE probably thought they were so clever when they came up with the concept for Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens. But, who’s gonna watch the watchmen? Kool A.D. and friends sure will. I’m very happy to present the first episode of a series that “may or may not be called Total Relevance”, which features A.D., his wife and some friends posted up and providing commentary on top of Bronson’s show, where he’s doing the same thing with the History Channel classic. So gather up some friends, maybe grab some weed and complete the cypher by watching Kool A.D. watching Action Bronson watching Ancient Aliens.

Kool A.D., arguably the hardest working man in Rap, is back with a new collection of bars for your ear canal. He’s taking it kinda light on this one with only 17 tracks, but the relentless work ethic is still on display on monstrous lyrical exercises such as the 7 and a half minute “Art Money Bitch” and the extensive “Raiders Freestyle”, which also comes with a new video.

Watch the visual and stream the world premiere of the tape below, and then head over to Bandcamp to purchase.

Oh, nothing to see here, just another 100-track mixtape from Kool A.D.

Guests on this latest joint include Despot, Toro Y Moi and Lakutis.

Video: Kool A.D. – Ramblin

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Got a spare 20 minutes? Of course you do, you’re not doing shit. Check out the new video for Kool A.D.’s “Ramblin” which is a kool 20 minutes long and is off the 100-track ZIG ZAG ZIG mixtape that just dropped. This is less of a Rap song and more of a stream of consciousness poem over some drums, but then still kind of a Rap song.
