The much anitcipated collaboration from two of the sickest and best rappers ever in the game and inovators of their styles.Any one who is a true gangster rap fan(not lil wayne or 2 chainz crap)I mean Raekwon,Ghostface,Mobb Deep,D-Block,Clipse,etc.then they know G Rap is the Godfather of such genre and is the best and my favorite rapper of all time.No one can tell a story so visceraly and vividly and he pulls no punches.Then we have The infamous and controversial Necro who you either love or hate.Thankfully i'm a huge Necro fan and feel that he gets better as the years go on while never straying away from his death rap style of lyricism and if you like Mr.Hyde,early Ill Bill,Non-Phixion,Sean Strange,Then Necro is like the G Rap of this genre so naturally they both are from the rougher areas of nyc and carry a cult like underground following they decided to do a collaboration album rightfully titled The Godfathers.Now this album is pure fire from start to finish 2 tracks on the album which is amazingly produced by the madman Necro who has always been a top notch producer does sometimes make to up tempo fast paced beats that just sound corny and unfortunatly he gives us 2 on here.but all other tracks are just amazing and it's a real treat to hear these 2 kind of try one anothers styles out with G Rap kicking death rap style lyrics and Necro kicking gangster rap style lyrics(reminds you who's brother he is)and both are very multisyllibic their breath control is insane.Omerta,Wolves feat Hyde are 2 of my favorite but the whole album is amazing and well worth the wait.When The Sean Strange/Snowgoons/PMD album Goondox album came out early this year i said in my review that it was the year of the Underground and I have been right so far and this gem proves it.Read more ›

This is hardcore boom bap hip hop. As classic as it gets and as lyrical as it gets. I pre-ordered this after I heard "Omerta" and it took a few listens but after you can't put it down. WELL WORTH IT.

When this album was first announced it blew my mind that we would be getting a full length collaboration between Necro/Kool G Rap over Necro produced beats. Let me just say the album completely lived up to all my expectations and is a great album from start to finish. The album carries the theme of Necro/Kool G Rap basically stating that in 2013 there more relevant than ever and they both are Godfathers of their perspective genres. My favorite tracks off the album are...

Unsub
Omerta
The City
Wolf Heart
Heart Attack
High Tension
Once Upon A Crime

All the tracks have great beats and concepts though and combine to make an album you can flow through without skipping any tracks. This was my favorite album to come from an Underground artist this year and is highly recommended to anyone that enjoys real hip-hop music.

Necro remains one of the best mc s up there with Ill Bill ,Vinnie Paz, -- Kool G Rap an Necro is a deadly combination the album was done very well the beats are ill Necro is a double threat as he makes his own beats. Im never disappointed when I cope his albums . Im going to enjoy riding around in my whip playing album this loud as hell.

Classic Boom Bap for the 21 century...Period! Believe it or not, Necro is way ahead than your favorite "status quo" nursery rhyme producers. Of course ...G Rap goes for the kill as usual; as R.A. the Rugged Man says, "Legends Never Die". For those who listen to lil" wayne and 2 chainz, don't quit your job.

Back in 2011, Kool G Rap released his Riches, Royalty, Respect album, which was then followed by two years of silence from the New York veteran. There were rumors that he was working on a collaborative album with Necro, but nothing felt official until the two emcees unveiled the first single, “Heart Attack,” a month before the album’s release. As a fan of Kool G Rap, I was excited for the new music, but prior to Once Upon a Crime I had yet to familiarize myself with Necro, so I approached this album with a great deal of caution.

Unfortunately, this album could have gone one of two ways depending on how well I took to Necro’s lyricism, cadence, and personality on the mic. What I didn’t expect, however, was to be so split with my opinion. I occasionally felt that the album would have benefited from the exclusion of the Brooklyn native, but there were other listens where I actually enjoyed what I heard from Ill Bill’s little brother. This is because Once Upon a Crime isn’t inherently bad, but the monotony of the content present in these 18 tracks quickly becomes a chore to get through.

For the most part, all of the songs on this album follow the same formula: Necro, hook, Kool G Rap, hook, fade out. G Rap only gets the opening word on three of these songs, which makes Once Upon a Crime feel more like a “Necro featuring Kool G Rap” album, as opposed to a true collaborative effort. This vibe is also the result of Necro’s extremely tense delivery, which can occasionally become overbearing and domineering, making Kool G Rap’s laid-back style sound unenthusiastic by comparison.

This also exemplifies the obvious fact that these two have absolutely no creative chemistry on the entire album.
