Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

Often cited as one of the best hip-hop albums of the '90s, Illmatic is the undisputed classic upon which Nas' reputation rests. It helped spearhead the artistic renaissance of New York hip-hop in the post-Chronic era, leading a return to street aesthetics. Yet even if Illmatic marks the beginning of a shift away from Native Tongues-inspired alternative rap, it's strongly rooted in that sensibility. For one, Nas employs some of the most sophisticated jazz-rap producers around: Q-Tip, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, and Large Professor, who underpin their intricate loops with appropriately tough beats. But more importantly, Nas takes his place as one of hip-hop's greatest street poets -- his rhymes are highly literate, his raps superbly fluid regardless of the size of his vocabulary. He's able to evoke the bleak reality of ghetto life without losing hope or forgetting the good times, which become all the more precious when any day could be your last. As a narrator, he doesn't get too caught up in the darker side of life -- he's simply describing what he sees in the world around him, and trying to live it up while he can. He's thoughtful but ambitious, announcing on "N.Y. State of Mind" that "I never sleep, 'cause sleep is the cousin of death," and that he's "out for dead presidents to represent me" on "The World Is Yours." Elsewhere, he flexes his storytelling muscles on the classic cuts "Life's a Bitch" and "One Love," the latter a detailed report to a close friend in prison about how allegiances within their group have shifted. Hip-hop fans accustomed to 73-minute opuses sometimes complain about Illmatic's brevity, but even if it leaves you wanting more, it's also one of the few '90s rap albums with absolutely no wasted space. Illmatic reveals a great lyricist in top form meeting great production, and it remains a perennial favorite among serious hip-hop fans. ~ Steve Huey

Kendrick Lamar, auf den Spuren eines Phänomens…

Die breite Masse wie auch die Underground-Szene verehrt ihn. Nur selten hat ein Rapper so eine allgemeine Zustimmung gefunden. Wie hat Kendrick Lamar es geschafft, sich so deutlich gegen seine Konkurrenz durchzusetzen? Und das Ende ist noch lange nicht in Sicht…

Kamasi Washington, der Saxofonist aus LA

Ein Dreifachalbum hat ihn an die Spitze katapultiert, jetzt ist er mit einem Doppelalbum wieder da! 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.

David Rodigan, die Stimme des Reggae

Seit 40 Jahren stellt David Rodigan nun die Stimme des Reggae im britischen Radio dar. Seit seinen Anfängen beim BBC Radio London im Jahre 1978 ist er mehr als nur ein einfacher Radiosprecher, denn der leidenschaftliche Musikfan mixt auch auf Clubs und Festivals und wurde zum Weltmeister des Soundclashs ernannt, einer jamaikanischen Tradition, bei der DJs („Selectors“ genannt) sich mit einer Platte nach der anderen in der Hand gegenübertreten. Dafür benutzen sie spezielle Versionen von Reggae-Hits, die „Dubplates“ genannt werden, und auf denen der Künstler den Text ändert, um den Namen des Selectors anzupreisen. David Rogan, der Anfang 2018 sein Buch My Life in Reggae herausgebracht hat, erzählt Qobuz von geheimen Songs, Jamaika-Reisen, seinem leidenschaftlichen Bühnenspiel und seiner „mystischen“ Begegnung mit Bob Marley.
