Despite the recent disbandment of Das Racist, Kool A.D. continues to bring forth tracks displaying his alluring persona through a blend of buffoonery lyrics with boom-bap rap beats. His latest offering sees the release of his second and third tape in a series honoring bus lines in the Bay Area – a borough he grew up and current resides since Das Racist's hiatus. Titled 63 and 19, Kool A.D. steps into the booth with a consortium of New York associates like Mike Finito, Lakutis, Meyhem Lauren and Steel Tipped Dove, along with West Coast rhymers Bus Driver, Young L and drone-house sensation Pictureplane. The result is another dispatch of uncooked tape charm, with raw slang flung all over the place – somewhat cartoony, somewhat complex, but 100% engaging. If the idea of Dead Prez humming to James Brown whilst tweaking on a MPC 2000 is your thing, then give the below a listen.
