Kool G Rap and DJ Polo was a well known rap duo from New York City. Kool G Rap met DJ Polo in 1986, and the two released several underground hit singles including "It’s a Demo/I’m Fly". Two other singles, "Streets of New York" and "Road to the Riches", received heavy rotation on Yo! MTV Raps and cemented their reputation as one of New York’s top rap pairs. Kool G Rap and DJ Polo also were quite controversial for their time, as evidenced by the crime-themed music video for "Road to the Riches", and perhaps most significantly on the cover art for their 1993 album "Live and Let Die", which showed Kool G Rap and DJ Polo in a warehouse dangling raw meat in front of a pair of rottweilers, whose leashes are tied to the legs of a pair of chairs, on top of which are two Tactical Narcotics Taskforce agents in nooses. In 1993, the duo decided to part ways, although their albums remain highly revered today amongst the hip hop community. « hide
