Cited as one of the most influential emcees of the golden age era, Kool G Rap has announced his first ever show in Brighton on Saturday 24th June, as part of his long-awaited UK tour, having not performed in the country for 25 years.
With other classic rappers such as The Notorious B.I.G, Ghostface Killah and Nasnaming Kool G as a major inspiration for their own brands of hip hop (as well as more contemporary emcees like Action Bronson citing the icon), the emcee is considered a pioneer of the genre.
Within his music, some of Kool G's hallmarks include complex multi-syllabic rhymes, using the same rhyme in entire verses and combining it with such fast paced delivery that his breath control is almost unbelievable.
Along with fellow hip hop legend Big Daddy Kane, Kool G was a member of the prestigious hip hop collective Juice Crew, founded by producer Marley Marl and responsible for the breakthrough of a legendary group of New School artists. Kool G Rap comes to venues across the country for the first time in over a quarter of a century.
