Kool G Rap

Friday 22nd June

Queens-based hip-hop icon Kool G Rap left one of the most enduring and impressive rap discographies in his wake.

Coming up with fellow Queens natives Juice Crew collective in the late 80s alongside artists like Biz Markie, Roxanne Shanté and Big Daddy Kane, G Rap was a technical stylist who practically solidified the toolbox of modern-day “lyrical” MCs: internal rhymes, repeating syllables and effortless cool.

As early as 1988 he was spitting lines like “making veterans run for medicine ’cause I put out more lights in a fight than Con Edison,” a progenitor to the tricky wordplay of modern artists like Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt, T.I. and Lupe Fiasco. In songs and interviews, Jay Z, Nas and Eminem have all acknowledged his influence.

Join us for a very rare London show in the intimate surroundings of the Jazz Cafe with one of the East Coast’s undisputed hip-hop legends.
