Kool G Rap & DJ Polo – Road To The Riches

“Road to the Riches” is the second single from American hip hop duo Kool G Rap & DJ Polo’s 1989 debut album Road to the Riches. The song is semi-autobiographic, rags-to-riches tale, with the first two verses detailing Kool G Rap’s youth living in poverty and his life before becoming a successful rapper. The third and final verse warns of the dangers of living a life of crime. In a 2014 interview, G Rap stated that some parts of the song were true, such as him working a low-paying job in a Key Food supermarket and selling crack cocaine, while others, such as his father being a drug dealer, were fictional. “Road to the Riches” was Kool G Rap & DJ Polo’s first music video.
