Kool A.D. released a 100-song mixtape at the end of last year. ONE HUNDRED. That’s a lot of music. His newest release, though? An easier-to-digest seven songs, but it’s just as exploratory. Allegedly made in four hours after a trip to Los Angeles, according to The FADER, the New York rapper delivers his All Love EP.
The project begins with Kool A.D. rapping over Desiigner’s “Panda” beat for seven-and-a-half minutes before delving deeper into the autotuned, sing-songy nature of today’s rap. Since his days with Das Racist, Kool A.D. has done a great job handling his tongue-in-cheek commentary on the world in an up-front way. He told The FADER:
“It’s a swaggy lil novela reflecting the ills and sad beauties of these crazy modern times we be living in. It’s probably the most important and legendary music of 2016 thus far and a solid entry in the Immaculate KOOL A.D. Oeuvre.”
