David Alston, Exclusive Magazine states ' Solid rhyming skills showcase Cooley potential to be a major rap contender. Not since the invention of Rock n' roll has a musical format been more influential as hip hop and rap. But when any new style becomes fashion it's image and sound can quickly become diluted with mediocre talents. This is not the case for Corwin 'Cooley' whose versatility is as cool and refreshing as his name. Born in Louisiana and raised in San Francisco, this young talent boast lyrical skills so impressive you'd think he's a veteran rapper. With the release of his sophomore project 'II Kold' on San Francisco based Czechmate Entertainment label, Cooley gangsta lean accents his laid back, but intense rhyming style proving his potential to soar. Pumped with 17 blazing tracks 'II Kold' leaves your speakers and ears smoking long after the rhythm of the grooves has faded on 'First Tyme', 'Platimum Plaques' and remix 'New Freind'. Cooley manages his flow well and knows when to flip a rhyme picking up the pace with 'New Friend' or 'New Friend' remix which immediately gets the party started as Cooley gets down and funky with the call and response catch phrase 'make her my new friend' providing an across the board smash dedicated to the lady's. Currently on tour throughout Northern California perfecting his craft as some of the hottest spots in the state, including the Velvet Lounge, Lamia, Simone's, The Appollo Theater in SF, Spy Club. As well as Kimball's East (a first for a rap artist) Cooley has picked up a following eager to check out his powerful live performances. One recent performance turned a small club into massive audience hype party with Cooley being forced to perform an encore to calm down the crowd after his energetic performances, much to the dissatisfaction of the headlining act. Cooley loops a pattern that weaves each song together without allowing any to repeat. Confident in his game, Cooley shares the mic by featuring Bay Area rappers A-1 and Macho on the players plea 'We Gon Make It'. Label mate Macho may be the Snoop Dog to Cooley's Dr. Dre the way they lock into the groove without skipping a beat. 'II Kold' only scratches the surface of what's to come from this innovative talent who wrote and produce every track on the album except the flash back track 'Interstate 2 H.E.L.L'
