A strong case could be made for Live and Let Die as Kool G Rap & DJ Polo's crowning achievement. Who can really say for sure if the controversy surrounding the cover artwork, which shows the duo feeding steaks to a pair of rottweilers, in front of two noose-necked white men, clouded a proper consensus? The artwork could have been even more graphic according to the liner notes by legendary Photography/Art Director George DuBose. With across-the-board stellar production help from Sir Jinx and Trakmasterz, G Rap (who also produces) continues his no-holds-barred narratives that peaked with Wanted: Dead or Alive's "Streets of New York", but most everything on this album comes close to eclipsing that song. "Ill Street Blues" is practically a sequel, and it manages to use more swanky piano vamps and horn blurts without making for a desperate attempt at capitalizing on a past glory. Few tales of growing up in a life of crime hit harder than the title track, in which G Rap displays the traits, unforced frankness, that unmistakable voice, and a flow that drags you involuntarily along, that made him a legend. The album is one story after another that draws you in without fail and they come at you from several angles. Whether pulling off a train heist, venting sexual frustration, analyzing his psychosis, or lording over the streets, G Rap is a pro at holding a captive audience. All die-hard East Coast Rap fans, especially followers of the Notorious B.I.G., 2Pac or any now school wanna-be gangsta/thug rapper owe it to themselves to get real familiar with this album and the two that predated it. Cold Chillin and Traffic proudly present Live And Let Die, available for the first time as a double disc set, including the original album, and a collection of substantial bonus material, from artwork to audio. With all the songs being digitally re-mastered, this project has been thought out, done right, and handled with care. We know you ll enjoy it.
