It's a Shame
Label: Cold Chillin'
One of the very first thug rappers, Kool G Rap parts ways with DJ Polo and returns for his first solo album. The result is exactly what you'd expect from the master: rapid-fire street commentary set to banging tracks. Very underrated, 4,5,6 sports many excellent cuts, including "For Da Brothers," "It's A Shame," "Fast Life," and "Take Em To War."
