Godfather Don x Parental "Osmosis" (Album Stream)


Godfather Don is back with a new album, fully produced by Paris-based Parental. With 16 tracks in total, Osmosis includes all instrumentals, plus a bonus beat by Godfather Don. Godfather Don first appeared in 1991 with Hazardous, released on the Select imprint. The album established Godfather Don as an MC influenced by the blatant, hard-hitting style of Chuck D. A few years later, the Don appeared on and produced the Ultramagnetic MC's' Four Horsemen, which led to a collaboration with that group's standout, Kool Keith. The Cenobites EP was issued on Fondle 'Em Records, which was started by Bobbito Garcia. The material on the EP had originally been recorded as promos for Garcia's underground hip-hop radio show on New York's WKCR. The Cenobites EP was then reissued by Fondle 'Em as a full-length LP. Throughout the 1990s, Godfather Don continued to work as a producer, working on tracks from Kool Keith, Hostyle, and Ayatollah, among others. In 1999, he released his second album, Diabolique, on which his flow was very similar to the bludgeoning raps of his 1991 debut. The album included cameo appearances from Kool Keith and Sir Menelik, and appeared on the Hydra Entertainment imprint, for which Godfather Don continued to record, releasing several 12" singles in 1999, 2000, and 2001.
