22ND JUNE 2018


Queens-based hip-hop icon KOOL G RAP left one of the most endur­ing and impress­ive rap dis­co­graph­ies in his wake.

Com­ing up with fel­low Queens nat­ives Juice Crew col­lect­ive in the late 80s along­side artists like Biz Markie, Rox­an­ne Shanté and Big Daddy Kane, G Rap was a tech­nic­al styl­ist who prac­tic­ally solid­i­fied the tool­box of mod­ern-day “lyr­ic­al” MCs: intern­al rhymes, repeat­ing syl­lables and effort­less cool.

As early as 1988 he was spit­ting lines like “mak­ing vet­er­ans run for medi­cine ’cause I put out more lights in a fight than Con Edis­on,” a pro­gen­it­or to the tricky word­play of mod­ern artists like Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweat­shirt, T.I. and Lupe Fiasco. In songs and inter­views, Jay Z, Nas and Eminem have all acknow­ledged his influ­ence.

Join us for a very rare Lon­don show in the intim­ate sur­round­ings of the Jazz Café with one of the East Coast’s undis­puted hip-hop legends.

Also per­form­ing on the night is UK Hip Hop artist AWA­TE. Hav­ing released one of the biggest albums in UK Hip Hop of 2018, Awa­te is more than just a per­former — expect know­ledge, bars and a pres­ence like no oth­er.
