The 50 Best Storytelling Rap Songs

29. Kool G Rap "On The Run" (1992)

Album: Live and Let Die
Producer: Sir Jinx, Kool G Rap
Label: Cold Chillin' Records

"On the Run" is the first song on Kool G Rap & DJ Polo's 1992 album , their final album as a duo. It's a long, twisty heist story that puts G Rap in the life of a low-level mobster looking for a come-up. Dissatisfied by what he thinks is insufficient pay for all the drug running and money laundering jobs he is required to handle from day to day, he steals a shipment of coke so he can go into business for himself. His bosses catch him on the way to the airport, where he and his girl are plotting to hightail it out of town. He somehow single-handedly takes out an entire crime family and makes his escape, leaving no living enemies.
