Kool G Rap and Necro joined forces in late 2013 under the monkier The Godfathers. "The Godfathers album is about pure east coast lyricism over hardcore beats. Kool G Rap is the legendary godfather of all criminal street gangster rap, he invented most of what you see today and lyrically every dope emcee is inspired by him; including myself. On the flipside of that coin, you have me, the underground king of Death Rap and extreme hip-hop, nobody in the field gets more respect than me for brutal rhymes and hardcore production. Since we are both godfather’s of our own respective styles, this collaboration was a natural and overdue one."
