The Koolest – 1995 feat. Napoleon Da Legend (Official Video)

The Koolest

Aside from dominant college sports teams and the legendary John Coltrane, North Carolina boasts another cool thing – The Koolest. The duo, comprised of rappers Dan The Don and Dinero P, creates a freshly unique fusion of Hip-hop and R&B. Both attended Hillside High School in Durham, NC, never once interacting with one another. While Dinero P cultivated his love for music, learning to play numerous instruments namely, guitar, piano, and synthesizer; Dan The Don looked for a way out of a gang-affiliated lifestyle that almost cost him his life several times. His escape route was lit upon realizing he could rap — well. Upon graduating Living Arts College: School of Communication Arts, Dinero P came home to find his sister in a new relationship with a music-loving hip-hop addict who shared his first name, Daniel. They clicked, forming The Koolest. Dinero P infuses the rhythmic element of his birthplace; Brooklyn, NY and Dan The Don brings a southern energy, adding flare from his favorite West Coast and Midwest artists. The Koolest has shared the stage with big name acts like, Juicy J, Pac Div, Ace Hood, Johnny Polygon, Smoke DZA and just released their first LP, Nerds at the Kool Table in April of 2014.
