Kool A.D. Drops ‘All Love’ EP
Kool A.D. released a brand new EP titled All Love. The former Das Racist member continues to walk the line of satire and serious rap with his new release as he ventures into the use of AutoTune on the project. Like much of the Bay Area rhymer's solo and past group work, you never quite know when something is completely earnest or being played for a joke.
"It's a swaggy lil novela reflecting the ills and sad beauties of these crazy modern times we be living in," Kool A.D. told The FADER about the project via email. "It's probably the most important and legendary music of 2016 thus far and a solid entry in the Immaculate KOOL A.D. Oeuvre."
The new EP features just seven tracks, a far car from Kool A.D.'s massive 100-track mixtape released last fall. That project saw Kool A.D. compiling a ton of collaborations, original productions and jacked beats into one giant listening experience. This time around, the San Francisco rapper gives fans something that's a little easier to digest.
In addition to the new EP, Kool A.D. also dropped a music video for the title track "All Love." The video is directed by longtime collaborator Nick Knight, who many might know from his work with Kanye West. Knight previously directed the music videos for "Black Skinhead" and "Bound 2."
