Graduation's pre-leak talk wasn't as substantive as it was with Kanye West's first two albums. As with just about any other artist's third album, it had to be expected. The College Dropout was one of the most anticipated debuts of the early 2000s, while Late Registration had people wondering why Kanye would feel the need to work so extensively with multi-instrumentalist rock producer Jon Brion (the J Dilla of the chamberlin) and whether or not Kanye's hubristic tendencies would get the better of it. With Graduation, there was Takashi Murakami's artwork, a silly first-week sales competition with the decreasingly relevant 50 Cent, and chatter about synthesizers running wild. That was about it, but it all seemed loud and prevalent, due in part to a lack of high-profile rap albums released in 2007. Graduation is neither as bold nor as scattered as The College Dropout, and it's neither as extroverted nor as sonically rich as Late Registration. Kanye still makes up for his shortcomings as an MC and lyricist by remaining charmingly clumsy, frequently dealing nonsense through suspect rhyme schemes: "I never be picture-perfect Beyoncé/Be light as Al B. or black as Chauncey/Remember him from Blackstreet, he was black as the street was/I never be laid-back as this beat was." The songs that are thematically distanced, introspective, and/or wary -- there are many of them -- are, in turn, made more palatable than insufferable. That his humor remains a constant is a crucial aspect of the album, especially considering that most other MCs would sound embittered and hostile if they were handling similar subjects, like haters new and old, being a braggart with a persistent underdog complex, getting wrapped up in spending and flaunting, and the many hassles of being a hedonist. Those who have admired Kanye as a sharp producer while detesting him as an inept MC might find the gleaming synth sprites, as heard most prominently throughout "Flashing Lights" and "Stronger," to be one of the most glaring deal-breakers in hip-hop history. Though the synthesizer use marks a clear, conscious diversion from Kanye's past productions, highlights like "I Wonder," "The Glory," and "Everything I Am" are deeply rooted in the Kanye of old, using nostalgia-inducing samples, elegant pianos and strings, and gospel choirs. So, no, he's not dreaming of fronting A Flock of Seagulls or joining Daft Punk. He's being his shrewd, occasionally foolish, and adventurous self.

Jack White, Retter des Rock

Egal, ob mit den White Stripes oder als Solokünstler, Jack White hat alle Etappen des Rock miterlebt, auch die schwierigen. Das Genie prophezeit mit seinen tausend Projekten: Rockmusik wird energiegeladen zurückkommen. Und bis das geschehen soll, nehmen wir das Phänomen White noch einmal genauer unter die Lupe.

Kamasi Washington, der Saxofonist aus LA

Kamasi Washington verwirrt und verzaubert über die Welt des Jazz hinaus. Der charismatische Saxofonist aus Los Angeles, der mit Kendrick Lamar und Snoop Dogg zusammenarbeitet, bringt aber vor allem als Bandleader des West Coast Get Down-Kollektivs stürmischen Wind in die aktuelle Jazz-Szene.

Wie der Reggae den amerikanischen Pop erobert hat

Seit Bob Marley hat der Reggae nie mehr so im Rampenlicht gestanden. Denn die Hits der amerikanischen Popstars haben in den letzten drei Jahren einen jamaikanischen Einschlag bekommen. Immer mehr Sänger – das geht von Beyoncé über Drake oder Justin Bieber bis hin zu Rihanna – bringen ihre Stimme auf einem Track mit Dancehall zu Gehör, der „Club“-Version des Reggae, die Mitte der achtziger Jahre vom legendären Produzenten King Jammy mit Sleng Teng, dem ersten elektronischen Reggae der Geschichte, populär gemacht wurde. Rückblick auf eine sanfte Infiltration.
