Vince Staples' fourth album is an illustration of what the expression "good kid, mad city", popularised by Kendrick Lamar, might mean. On Vince Staples, the Compton-born rapper explores the stark contrast between the extreme violence of his environment and his childhood, while seeking an escape. He wasn't looking for redemption, but rather light, hope and a reason to live. Entirely produced by Kenny Beats (Smoke DZA, Schoolboy Q, Rico Nasty, Denzel Curry, Slowthai...), these ten haunting tracks sometimes remind us of their protagonist's early recordings. Amidst the harshness of the situations depicted on the superb Take Me Home, there are almost childlike moments, a fascinating encounter between TR-808 rhythms and a sampled chipmunk voice on The Shining, whose apparent calm is clearly hiding a case of gangsta blues syndrome. Vince Staples' discography is flawless, and his fourth album is no exception. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

Australian Rap: Artists that Shaped the Scene

One thing is clear: a new generation of Australian artists is appropriating rap in their own way, injecting a great dose of African music and deep sounds. But since its emergence in the late 1980s, local rap has always stood out from its American big brother. Often brilliantly.

Reggaeton in 10 Albums

A combination of Jamaican dancehall, American hip-hop, Caribbean rhythms and Spanish wit, reggaeton has, since its birth in the early 90s, shaken the world of pop music time and time again. From DJ Playero’s first mixtapes to Daddy Yankee’s “Barrio Fino” and Don Chezina’s “Tra-Tra-Tra, Puerto Rican musicians and their Colombian counterparts in Medellin have done their utmost to take over the world. In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

Run The Jewels: Stick it to the Man

As they neared their fortieth birthdays, Killer Mike (a black rapper from Atlanta with close links to OutKast) and El-P (a white Brooklyn b-boy and proponent of experimental rap) formed Run The Jewels, a rap supergroup which could easily have been yet another addition to a long list of hiphop misfires. But on the contrary, they are now an institution, a group that delights audiences and awakens consciences. Their new album RTJ4 is their most political and devastating. Let us take a look back at Killer Mike and El-P’s story.
