Kool G Rap - Brother On The Run

Considered by many as The Godfather of Hip Hop, Kool G. paved the way for a lot of MCs who we would not have heard of otherwise. Kool G Rap excelled at the street narrative, a style that would come to define later Queens MCs like Nas (who was hugely influenced by G Rap on his early records) and Mobb Deep.

He has also been cited as a major influence to some of hip-hop's most critically acclaimed figures such as Eminem, Nas, Jay Z, and Big Pun.
