We are joined suited and booted by The Godfathers Kool G Rap and Necro for a 2 hour journey into their upcoming album. In this meeting, KGR and his new found partner in rhyme Necro sit down at the CWR table, offering a open and candid exploration into the creation and formulation of The Godfathers, citing each others work as a major influence throughout its recording. In addition, we discuss the parallels of Necro and Marley Marl’s chemistry with G Rap, competition, including what could have become a beef between Juice Crew’s Craig G and Necro many years ago, sampling, re-creating Kool G Rap and DJ Polo’s 1990 classic Men At Work, Domingo, dirty raps, politics and much more in a must hear podcast with two of Hip Hop’s biggest bosses.
