WARNING—major industry knowledge dropped on this record!
“things ain’t what they used to be/these ni**as in the game is fucking up E’s legacy/cous must be flipping in his grave.”
“Dr. Dre ain’t worried about Detox/he sell headphones/getting big Guap.”
From a long lineage of music (his Father is multiple Grammy award winner Jerry Long Sr, who produced and wrote hits for Motown Records including “I Heard It Thru The Grapevine,” “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” “War,” “Poppa Was A Rolling Stone” & “Car Wash” to name just a few) Kokane is one of the West Coast’s chief architects, from his rise as a solo-artist, to his work with Above The Law and his countless guest appearances ( Kokane is the most featured artist in the world—do the research) as his voice has been featured on over 35 million record sales over the course of his career (there is a reason they call him the hook master). From Dre, Snoop, Ice Cube, 50 Cent, Jadakiss, Eazy-E, Xzibit, Spice 1, Too Short, George Clinton, Boosty Collins, NWA, Young Buck etc, Kokane has lent his vocals to some of Hip-Hop’s most acclaimed projects.
You know the voice, now get ready to know Kokane (again)! Armed with a new LP, Gimme Mine, which will drop on 5-25-10 (on his own Bud E Boy Records in conjunction with Bonzi/Fontana) Kokane is back and sounding better then ever!
