By the time Jive Records released Born to Mack, Too Short's major-label debut, the young rapper was already a music industry veteran, having released several albums on the independent 75 Girls label. With Born to Mack Too Short continued the formula that had already made him a regional star -- sexually explicit lyrics over sparse, bass-heavy rhythm tracks. What is missing from this album, though, is any levity, humor, or musical exploration. Without the benefit of a lyrical wink or nod, and without any sign of his future head-nodding, funk workouts, Too Short's trademark "pimp" tales were stripped bare, revealing themselves too misogynist to be enjoyable. Even so, due to the success of the nearly ten-minute, underground smash "Freaky Tales," Born to Mack expanded Too Short's fan base past his Oakland, CA, hometown, eventually selling past gold status. Many of Short's later efforts, such as Life Is...Too Short and Shorty the Pimp were funnier, funkier, and plain better, but Born to Mack stands as most of the world's introduction to one of rap's most enduring, and best-selling, artists ever. ~ Mtume Salaam

Beyoncé et Jay-Z, les amants du son neuf

Shawn Carter et Beyoncé Knowles. En quinze années de relation tumultueuse, les deux stars sont devenues le premier couple royal de la jeune histoire du rap et R&B moderne. Entre mise en scène et réalisme déguisé traversant le temps, le couple a créé la bande-son musicale d’un amour au long cours avec multiples embûches et réussites.

Le roman de MF DOOM

Daniel Dumile alias MF DOOM a eu mille vies et sa trajectoire a été une succession de faux départs et de fulgurances. Avant de vivre une semi-retraite dorée bien méritée (dont il ressort volontiers à la faveur d'invitations prestigieuses), il fut tour à tour un jeune rappeur virtuose accueilli à bras ouverts par l'industrie musicale, un indésirable revenu sur la scène par la petite porte (et masqué) après des années d'errance, le “go-to guy” du rap indépendant des années 2000 et une sorte de messie indie adoubé par Thom Yorke ou Flying Lotus. Insaisissable, fantasque et volontiers fraudeur et cachetonneur, DOOM a dynamité les codes du rap, fait grincer des dents et ouvert la voie à toute une génération de MC's.

David Rodigan, la voix du reggae

Depuis quarante ans, David Rodigan est la voix du reggae sur la FM britannique. Depuis ses débuts sur BBC Radio London en 1978, ce passionné a largement dépassé sa fonction d’animateur radio, allant mixer dans les clubs et les festivals et devenant champion du monde de soundclash, une tradition jamaïcaine qui voit s’affronter des DJ’s (les “selectors”) disque contre disque, à l’aide de versions spéciales de hits reggae appelées “dubplates” – l’artiste changeant les paroles pour vanter le nom du selector. Alors qu’il a sorti début 2018 son livre My Life in Reggae, David Rodigan évoque pour Qobuz ces chansons secrètes, ses voyages en Jamaïque, son jeu de scène frénétique ou encore sa rencontre “mystique” avec Bob Marley.
