FAMOUS QUOTES BY KOOL G RAP
“Growing up in Corona was like a little Harlem, it wasn’t that hard for a nigga to be influenced by the street life type of mentality. I was like 15 years old, Ma dukes couldn’t dress a nigga no more and at that age you want a little money in your pocket. That’s what gets us all, material possessions. A nigga got caught up in that mentality. Nigga started selling drugs at a certain point, and all that shit, it’s what was goin’ on in the streets … eventually all my friends got smoked. Everybody was droppin’. All my friends started packing burners everyday, we was wild shorties.”
“What I had was bad from my shoes to my pad. In the first time in my life loanin money to dad. Now the table’s turned and my lifestyle switches. My name is Kool G Rap, I’m on the road to the riches.
” So he fakes to be a man, but he can’t stand. On his own two feet because now he’s in a new land. Rules are different and so is life. When you think with a shank, talk with a knife.”
“ And it was a time when it was just a New York sound that was dominant throughout the genre of Hip Hop. And then it kinda switched over. And the cats from the South was struggling during the times of Run D.M.C., LL Cool J…When Hip Hop was a New York sound. Dominated the genre of music. You know what I’m saying? So, you can’t be mad at them now for coming up.”
