"Kool G Rap is an ill mc all around. Storytellin, battle rhymes, etc. 4,5,6 showcases Kool G rap's almost breathless delivery that is just amazing to hear. Any Kool G Rap CD is a must listen this is an ESSENTIAL."

"This album i copped in 2003, and i must say this album is official,hot production by Dr Butcher (very underrated producer),Naughty Shorts,and T-Ray (he produced for the artifacts ' classics like Wrong Sides Of The Tracks),this album is a classic, very underrated, my favorite tracks are 4,5,6, Take 'Em To War,Executioner Style, Blowing Up In The World(using the hot blazing sample of Bobby Caldwell's What You Won't Do For Love),and my favorite Ghetto Knows,and based on what i read on mf grimm's interview there was supposed to be a video for the single Take Em To War but i think he got locked up or somethin' like that,plus he got shot and got paralysed, somethin i read but that wouldve been hot but instead it was replaced by fast life which is a hot song but i like the buckwild remix better, this album is recommended for fans of mid 90's hip hop, real hip hop and kool g rap, hope u guys found this review helpful, peace."

"In 1995, Kool G. Rap split from DJ Polo and went on the solo and dropped the album 4,5,6. Not many people speak of this album when the mention Kool G., so this right here seems to be sort of a lost album. Whats a little different about this than his previous releases is that the album is shorter, and hes lyrically changed. There aren't a lot of story telling tracks on here that go into detail, as many were used to, but more lyrical tracks that covered many topics that were popular back in '95 (such as the Mafia lifestyle, but G. Rap flipped it to make it seem original).
Most of the tracks on here have solid quality. I have to admit, I had to let this album grow on me. But when you analyze the whole album, songs like "4,5,6", and "It's A Shame" are both dope. "Take 'Em To War" is a hot song as well and features B1, and MF Grimm. "Executioner Style" will fit perfectly in the rap game topics that were popular back then, with a dope sounding beat. I think "Blowin' Up In The World" is my favorite out of this album, because of the fact Kool G.'s rhymes are on point the most on here, about coming up (the popular tongue twisting style is unique with him). "Fast Life" is another highlight with young and fresh sounding Nas. The album final track "Money On My Brain" is another excellent colab with B1 and MF Grimm again.
The overall album is hot. It may grow on some, while others it will hit right away. It fits perfectly into the mid-late hip hop back in '95. Kool G. never misses a step with this album and has a long line of classics before this album. This is one I would recommend. Peace.
