4.0 out of 5 stars A Raw Album Finally Reissued (Rating: 8 out of 10- -4.0 stars) Jan. 4 2009
By Chandler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kool G. Rap and DJ Polo's third album Live & Let Die was released back in 1992 on Cold Chillin' Records (I think due to the infamous "Cop Killer" song, not to mention the Biz Markie fiasco the previous year, Warner Brothers pulled out of this album because of the lyrical content and concept- don't quote me on that). G. Rap's story telling abilities places any listener through twists and turns through any storyline that he creates. Most of his rhymes will put you through a lyrical cinema full of anything he can think of.

Every song is unique in it's own way. "On The Run" shows how great his story telling abilities are. "Train Robbery" is another great standout song. Two great standouts here are the following two tracks: "#1 With A Bullet" and "Operation CB". "#1 With A Bullet" features Big Daddy Kane, who probably has the best performance in the 90's decade. His verse is just amazing. The next track "Operation CB" is a hilarious song where under two different occasions someone prevents G. Rap from getting some from a female. The album's lead single "Ill St. Blues" is cleverly made, production and hook wise. Further down the album is the hilarious "F U Man" (many may recognize that beat later used for Jay-Z's "Cashmere Thoughts"). The album ends with the horrorcore sounding track "Two To The Head" featuring Scarface, Bushwick Bill of the Geto Boys, and Ice Cube.

For those who have the reissue, it comes with a bonus disc as well as a booklet full of rare photos and the making of this album. The bonus disc isn't really necessary for casual fans of this album. But for hardcore fans of this, it will be worth your time. The bonus disc is full of alternative versions and radio edits of the singles on this album.

The album is well produced for the most part, done by Sir Jinx, G. Rap, and Trackmasterz (they've been around that long?) Some of the songs may sound like something that one might recognize from Ice Cube's The Predator, giving that west coast vibe, done by Sir Jinx, but the whole album itself never leaves the east coast atmosphere.

This album is one of many great albums in Kool G. Rap's discography. All of his albums on Cold Chillin' Records have been reissued on Traffic Entertainment, and have gone out of print not too long afterward. Its highly recommended that if you're on the fence of getting this album to make the purchase ASAP, because it will not be around for long. Fans of east coast 90's rap will appreciate this. Peace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Magnum Opus for East Coast Rappers-- Aug. 25 2008
By Hype Currie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo were by now underground rap superstars, and pioneers for hardcore rap; Kool G Rap especially was known for his film-noir-based tales of Mafioso life and the ghetto underworld. For this, their third LP, the group mostly recorded in Southern California with producer Sir Jinx of Ice Cube's Lench Mob camp. Jinx gives Kool G. a West Coast sound, heavy on 70's funk and soul samples. He produces all but a couple of songs here, the remaining done by Trackmasters, who would later achieve great acclaim producing for LL Cool J, Nas, and Will Smith. Released in 1992, the same year as Ice-T's "Cop Killer" controversy, the album was delayed for several months as label executives debated the often violent content.

A summary of key tracks follows:

"Intro"- a sample of the "Godfather" theme music accompanies this intro; Kool G Rap has said in interviews that he wanted this album to play like a movie.
"On the Run"- Kool G. imagines himself as a Mob courier delivering drugs; one day he decides to take the "product" and cash and make a run for it, with violent results.
"Live & Let Die"- not a cover of the Paul McCartney song, but a rap manifesto about the criminal life.
"Train Robbery"- Kool G. imagines robbing a New York City subway train.
"No. 1 with A Bullet"- Kool G. teams up with Big Daddy Kane for a hyper-aggressive track; Kane, for his part, sounds re-energized on this uptempo cut.
"Operation CB"- Kool G. relates misadventures trying to have romantic liaisons with the opposite sex.
"Straight Jacket"- Kool G imagines himself as a psychologically disturbed man whose violent past catches up with him.
"Ill Street Blues"- the leadoff single, a piano-laced track where Kool G. references the "Scarface (the movie)" line of "what's a hassa"?
"Edge of Sanity"- Kool G. imagines himself as a prisoner who goes insane with jealousy towards his girlfriend.
"F***-U Man"- allegedly a proposed song collaboration/tribute to porn actor Ron Jeremy (DJ Polo had a chance meeting with him at a hotel), Kool G spits sexually explicit boasts here.
"Two to the Head"- featuring the Geto Boys' Scarface & Bushwick Bill as well as Ice Cube, the rappers tag-team against wack MCs.

A second disc has various selections from 12-inch singles released during the album's first run.
4.0 out of 5 stars The finale Oct. 21 2014
By Bryce Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The last of three very good albums by Kool G Rap & DJ Polo. DJ Polo is hardly sighted this time around, as the record was produced by Sir Jinx (with a couple of contributions from the Trackmasters), and "scratching" in hip-hop was becoming an unfashionable trend by the early 1990s. Therefore, it's no surprise that Kool G Rap reverted to releasing records in his own name solely after this album. But what a great end to the three album partnership this is anyway! If you like Ice Cube's Death Certificate, you'll probably like this, as Sir Jinx's production is comparable on both releases. G Rap is at his most controversial on this violent, sexist disc, breaking new ground in terms of subject matter, which would duly be copied by thousands of imitators. The guy could tell a truly gripping yarn, and the few remaining boasting tracks (Letters) are fine showcases for his talent. All three Kool G Rap & DJ Polo are highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic hip hop album Dec 8 2010

Live & Let Die is a must have album: top class gangsta rap lyrics over heavy funky beats! Every (real) hip hop fan should have a copy in his collection. The two disc edition is great, especially because it contains a large booklet with original pictures & singles covers, the history of the album and the lyrics of all songs. Enjoy!
