Two years after Koran Streets bared his emotions with You.Know.I.Got.It. (The Album), the Berkeley, Calif. rapper delivers his latest LP, Late 20s.

Earlier today, Koran celebrated the release with a post on Instagram, in which he wrote, "If This Album Dont Get Me Out The Hood 'FUCK IT' I’ll make another one!" On the 15-track effort, the “Running From the Police” artist reflects on his life in poignant and pensive detail.

On the mellow, head-nodding groove "Take Ova," Koran yells out "it's a muthafuckin' takeover." He name-drops Fat Joe, Craig from Friday and Mary J. Blige throughout solid verses. "In the coupe leanin' back like I'm Fat Joe/Treat me like a hoe get your ass smoked," he rhymes.

The frantic banger "Baby" finds Koran serving up rhymes in a menacing tone. "Yo, back up in this bitch like I never left/Kick the bitch out the house like she Jazzy Jeff/Baby I'm on fire, I know I'm hot to death," Koran raps.

Recently, Koran Streets released a video for “The Preface,” a personal loosie that didn’t make the final cut of the album. The Luis Montoya and Streets-directed video featured Koran playing chess with a member of the Ku Klux Klan. The visual proved the “Slick Rick” rapper was out to leave a lasting impression.
