#17. Kool G Rap (Rap Pages, 1995)

Issue: September 1995
Art Direction: Brent Rollins
Photography: B+ (Brian Cross)

Another classic from the Rap Pages vault, this one places Kool G Rap blindfolded and facing a firing squad. The Kool Genius, of course maintains a perfect calm throughout it all, but maybe that's because his executioners clearly had such terrible aim. Ja Rule later appeared on the cover of VIBE under very similar circumstances.
