The Godfathers (Kool G Rap & Necro) “Heart Attack”…
As a pioneer of Mafioso Hip-Hop, Kool G Rap is often cited by fellow emcees and critics as one of the most influential and trend-setting rappers of the past two decades. Whether as a member of the ground-breaking Juice Crew, or his classic LP’s with DJ Polo, G Rap’s influence still resounds today as evidenced by Pusha T’s “King Push” where he name drops the Queen’s emcee “rage against the machine/black Zach De La Rocha/and a cranberry roaster/inside track on a G Rap poster.”
Likewise, Necro has also carved out his own very unique standing in the industry, whether it was playing guitar in a metal band at the tender age of 11, rhyming alongside his brother Ill Bill, producing his own material and for artists such as Non-Phixion, Cage, & Raekwon, or creating his own Independent label, Pyscho-Logical Records, which has thrived for over a decade now and released over two-dozen projects (including nine of his own). Necro has toured the globe many times over, been a participant in some of the genre’s top festivals (Rock The Bells & Paid Dues) and even created his own film production company.
Kool G Rap & Necro have now joined forces and on 11-19-2013 will be releasing a collaborative project as “The Godfathers” entitled “Once Upon A Crime” which will be released on SRC/Pyscho+Logical Records. Today, they release the first video, “Heart Attack,” from that forthcoming project.
