  • 4, 5, 6 is minimalistic, fucken raw. Kool G Rap's advantages is his straight up skills (rhythm, breathing techniques & wild use of multiple syllables) & his imposing lyrical themes & realness. NOT "innovation", even though The Symphony was the first commercially successfull battle-style posse cut, but G Rap hasnt been experimental since, or ever. MF Grimm's raw, stripped down percussion, scarce samples & melancholy ambience made it FAR GREATER, production-wise, than roots of evil & giancana story. Both amazing albums, G Rap never disappoints, but they were both pretty mainstream & standardized, not half as well adapted to accentuate & bring out G Rap's original & masterful spittin
  • Really liked his part in the new Cold World song, so I checked him out - dayum, this is the best rap I've ever listened to.

  • IMO 4,5,6 is his strongest release. His flow & his lyrics destroy it for me. Not many hip hop artists touch it when it comes to style and focus.
  • Roots of Evil is a much stronger release for me.
  • I'll probably always consider Live and Let Die his best album.
  • 4,5,6 doesn't do anything that hasn't been done before in one way or another, and hardly has any significant impact on hip hop. It's a solid release no doubt, but now thinking about it, it really shouldn't be considered a classic.
  • 4, 5, 6 is a classic [2]
  • Need 456 yo! Nate!
