KOOL KIM aka NY Oil of UMC’s BIO
“The 1 Minute Take Down King”, “the most versatile MC in Hip Hop” these are some of the phrases used to describe Kool Kim. Given high praise by artist such as Kwame’ (Mc / Producer), Mikey D (MC), Chip Fu (MC), Jesse West (Producer/ MC) PMD (of EPMD), Freedom Williams (MC), RA the Rugged Man (MC) , Kool Kim is one of Hip Hops hidden gems and best kept secrets.
Calling Kool Kim a secret is an oxymoron in many circles. As a member of the groundbreaking and influential classic group “The UMC’s” with #1 Billboard charting songs like “Blue Cheese”, “One To Grow On” and “Never Never Land” off the classic “Fruits of Nature Album” Kim has been a beloved icon in Hip Hop circles for years.
Even as a soloist, Kool Kim donned the alter-ego “NYOIL the Ideal” and shook the hip hop community. From his Cult classic album “HoodTreason” as NYOIL, Kool Kim became a highly respected artist. In this incarnation he is credited in many circles as the harbinger of what would be called the “Woke” movement.
Releasing his first solo single “My Condolences” Kool Kim shows both his artistic growth as well as his unique approach to Hip Hop. That 90’s era aesthetic in terms of lyrical content and performance, but something considerably more advanced in its overall delivery. It’s the evolution of the sound that created a billion dollar industry.
“I make music because it’s my hobby, and I love it. This is first, and I know that people will feel that as they get to know what I’m capable of” -Kool Kim.
‘My Condolences’ Produced by Kevin Cooper is a hard driving mid tempo banger with heavy bass. A true head nodder, that has a throwback appeal while feeling like a journey into the evolution of Hip Hop Music
