There's a lot happening on Logic's third proper Def Jam album. Central is an adaptation of Andy Weir's The Egg, a short story in which a didactic God (portrayed here by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson) and a stupefied man (played by DJ Big Von) discuss, after the latter's tragic death, reincarnation and the meaning of life. The dialogue begins at the end of the opener, continues as the entirety of the five-minute ninth track, and concludes in the message-filled finale. Without it, there's still well over an hour of music, enough to accommodate a multitude of perspectives and themes from the affably verbose Logic, who still seems to enjoy rapping as much as John Legend does singing. Keeping track of whether Logic's writing from his own or someone else's vantage can be a challenge, but one doesn't need to be that familiar with his work to realize that this contains some of his most personal rhymes. The tone is set early when he declares "Music is made to assimilate," after which he examines what does the opposite. All the while, he details various prejudices he has faced as a light-skinned biracial man, down to the assumption that he must have had it easy despite being born to drug-addicted parents and raised in a violent household with a racist mother who called him the n-word (the six-letter version). The production, handled by 6ix and Logic with a handful of assists, ensures that the album doesn't get mired in concepts and turn into a Saturday Night Live student theater showcase skit. The majority of the tracks are uptempo and tend to change shape as they play out, generally switching between gnashing breakbeats and snaking trap beats with slightly woozy atmospheric touches. Most compelling of the stylistic diversions occurs in "1-800-273-8255," a modern orchestral pop number titled after the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, and the sonically and lyrically connected "Anziety," where Logic details his struggles with (and positive spin on) anxiety. Out of the dozen listed features, Killer Mike takes the prize for his blazing polemic addressed to God. The booklet also acknowledges Weir, though pre-808s Kanye West, post-Section.80 Kendrick Lamar, and Chance the Rapper continue to loom large in Logic and 6ix's approach to making panoramic rap albums.

Le trip hop en 10 albums

A l’aube des années 90, la vague trip hop submerge la Grande-Bretagne avec une électro influencée par la musique jamaïcaine et les beats rap. Rythmiques chloroformées et ambiances oppressantes, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba et quelques autres inventent une sorte de soul music sombre, futuriste et parfois très cinématographique. Coup de zoom en 10 albums sur un genre aux frontières floues mais à l’influence nette.

Wu-Tang Clan : dans les couloirs de “36 Chambers”

Entre 1992 et 1994, le hip-hop new-yorkais vit une première renaissance, deux décennies après les premières block parties du DJ pionnier Kool Herc dans le South Bronx. “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”, le premier album du Wu-Tang Clan, qui sort le même jour que “Midnight Marauders”, le 3e disque d'A Tribe Called Quest et moins de six mois avant “Illmatic” de Nas, est l'une des pièces maîtresses de ce deuxième âge d'or. Mais son histoire est le fruit d'une alchimie et d'une trajectoire bien plus complexes et aléatoires.

La trap, mode d'emploi

Où commence et où s'arrête la trap ? Comment un sous-genre très codé du rap du Sud des États-Unis en est-il venu à muter au point d'innerver la pop mondiale et de presque se confondre avec elle ? Historique et controverses.
