This is the only CD I have from Kool G Rap, and let me say it is one amazing album. I don't know if all his album's are like this but I just can't get over how good this CD really is. I have been sleepin on it for 8 years. I first got my hands on this jewel in 2003. I think every song on this CD is fantasic. No weak points in the album, just good jams, right after another. Yes it is a little short with only 11 tracks, 1 of those tracks is an intro, and 1 is a remix to a song on the CD. But there are no bad songs, which makes up for that. It features Nas on one track, and B1 (who I have never herd of) & MF Grimm both on two tracks. It also has production by Buckwild from Diggin in the Crates Crew. I don't have any favorite songs becuase there all good in there own way. This CD is worth the $15. This CD is only for True Hiphop Heads!

Kool G Rap by far is my favorite rapper of all time. The 4,5,6, was without a doubt a classic. Every time i think about rap songs that came out during my high schol years, this album always come to mind. I was kind of upset that DJ Polo wasn't included in this album, because if he was then this album would of blown up world wide. The song that i like the most i say would have to be "Fast Life". Every time i hear that song it reminds be of my old hood in Queens & Da Boogie Down BX.

Kool G Rap's first cd without the company of DJ Polo is perhaps his best work lyrically. I doesn't hold the classic status of "Dead Or Alive" or "Live And Let Die", but this album keeps you holding on to every word, listening over and over again to gain a greater understanding of G Rap's gripping stories of struggle in New York's mafioso influenced streets. While Kool G Rap's straight forward but buttery smoothe flow is no question, you can't help but be concerned with the production team. Who is going to be able to match his street tales with those dark, gloomy beats we love the Genius of Rap to rip?. Although handled by a hand full of no name producers, their work is anything but non-efficient for G Raps dark stories of murder and struggle. The guest appearances are filled by less then memorable MCs other than Nas who along with the Genius himself, disgustingly rips "Fast Life" on some back and forth verse trading that gives you a new found or rekindled love for the art of the language. To sum it up......buy the album...you won't regret it.

Theis record stands out as the most chilling rap CD I own. Its a cold-blooded classic, but I was disappointed the first time I played it because I was expecting something in the style of Live and let die. This couldn't be further away. There are no jokes, no sex, no funky grooves, just one slow jam after another. Production is shiny and heavy, a big Illmatic influence is obvious (check Nas rapping on Fast Life, being sampled on the title track, and is that him standing next to G Rap on the cover? I think it is), but this is no idle immitation of that classic. Every track is solid from all perspectives, even if the initial shock at G Raps change in direction may perplex you - don't let it. This is one of the 20 best rap records out there IMO.

This album may not be the KGR of old, but let's face it, Nas ain't the same now either, or Wu-tang, Redman and Slick Rick. My point is that we must judge new albums by these artists by different standards. Kool G rap shines on this album, which was meant to be a re-anauguration into the rap world of the King of Old school massacre-laced rhymes (remember the ads in the source?). I liked 4,5,6 a lot, and it reminded me a bit of Rae's album which came out a month earlier. Criminology at its finest, as showcased by joints like "its a shame", the title track and "blowin up in the world". A warning to the faint of heart though, tracks like "take em' to war" and "executioner's style" are gory mob tales enough to make Gotti flinch: "i'm already dead/so naw that ain't no killin me/cuz quantities of entities enter me evilly". Haunting indeed. ALso check for the bouncy "fast life" with Nas. Dope indeed.

In 1995, Kool G. Rap split from DJ Polo and went on the solo and dropped the album 4,5,6. Not many people speak of this album when the mention Kool G., so this right here seems to be sort of a lost album. Whats a little different about this than his previous releases is that the album is shorter, and hes lyrically changed. There aren't a lot of story telling tracks on here that go into detail, as many were used to, but more lyrical tracks that covered many topics that were popular back in '95 (such as the Mafia lifestyle, but G. Rap flipped it to make it seem original).

Most of the tracks on here have solid quality. I have to admit, I had to let this album grow on me. But when you analyze the whole album, songs like "4,5,6", and "It's A Shame" are both dope. "Take 'Em To War" is a hot song as well and features B1, and MF Grimm. "Executioner Style" will fit perfectly in the rap game topics that were popular back then, with a dope sounding beat. I think "Blowin' Up In The World" is my favorite out of this album, because of the fact Kool G.'s rhymes are on point the most on here, about coming up (the popular tongue twisting style is unique with him). "Fast Life" is another highlight with young and fresh sounding Nas. The album final track "Money On My Brain" is another excellent colab with B1 and MF Grimm again.

The overall album is hot. It may grow on some, while others it will hit right away. It fits perfectly into the mid-late hip hop back in '95. Kool G. never misses a step with this album and has a long line of classics before this album. This is one I would recommend. Peace.
