LL Cool J rocketed to the top of the hip-hop world in 1985 with Radio, his astonishing debut, but he lost his footing a bit with Bigger and Deffer, his mildly disappointing follow-up that proved to be a commercial breakthrough all the same. It's a powerful album that gets underway with a bang, as LL raps, "No rapper can rap quite like I can," and makes his case throughout the album-opening "I'm Bad," a ferocious hardcore rap with a great DJ-scratched hook. While that song ranks among LL's best (and most popular) ever, Bigger and Deffer doesn't boast too many other standout moments, with the exception of "I Need Love." Its balladic tenderness comes as a late-album surprise, considering how ferocious LL sounds elsewhere here. Nonetheless, like it or loathe it, the song set the template for a number of such lovers raps that would bring LL much crossover success in the years to come. "I Need Love" aside, Bigger and Deffer is consistently solid, produced entirely by the L.A. Posse (Darryl Pierce, Dwayne Simon, and Bobby Erving) and filled with the sort of hard-hitting hip-hop that was Def Jam's staple at the time. But while the album is mostly solid, it does lack the creative spark that had made Radio such an invigorating release only a couple years prior (the absence of Rick Rubin here is unfortunate). In those couple years since LL had put out Radio, rap music had taken big strides. Now, in 1987, LL had to contend with the likes of Eric B. & Rakim, Kool Moe Dee, Public Enemy, and Boogie Down Productions, with others like EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, Ice-T, and N.W.A on the horizon. When put in such a context, Bigger and Deffer pales a bit; in the years since LL's Radio rocked the streets of New York, rap had taken leaps and bounds while LL hadn't. So it was no surprise when LL suddenly came under attack by his rivals and a few fans, sending him back to the drawing board for his next effort, the whopping 18-track Walking with a Panther (1989).

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.

Le reggaeton en 10 albums

Mélange de dancehall jamaïcain, de hip-hop américain, de rythmes caribéens et de tchatche en espagnol, le reggaeton a, depuis sa naissance dans les années 90, donné plusieurs coups de butoir pour forcer la porte de la pop music. Des premières mixtapes de DJ Playero au “Barrio Fino” de Daddy Yankee, en passant par le “Tra-Tra-Tra” de Don Chezina, les musiciens de Porto Rico et leur succursale colombienne de Medellin ont tout tenté pour conquérir le monde et y sont parvenus dans la dernière décennie à travers Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin ou Bad Bunny. Retour en 10 albums sur l’histoire d’un genre qui n’a pas fini d’être populaire.

L'âge d'or du rap existe-t-il ?

Du milieu des années 80 à celui des années 90, le hip hop a vécu une révolution artistique sans précédent. Une décennie d’une richesse alors inédite où brillera le talent de Public Enemy, De La Soul, N.W.A, Eric B & Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest et bien d’autres. Alors, le rap c'était mieux avant ?
