DJ Premier's first album-length production outside of Gang Starr was his best by far. Where Premier's productions hadn't shone underneath the cracking, over-earnest vocals of Guru, with a superior stylist like Jeru these tracks became brilliant musical investigations with odd hooks (often detuned bells, keys, or vibes), perfectly scratched upchoruses, and the grittiest, funkiest Brooklynese beats pounding away in the background. Of course, the star of the show was Jeru, a cocksure young rapper who brought the dozens from the streets to a metaphysical battleground where he did battle with all manner of foe -- the guy around the corner on "D. Original" or an allegorical parade of hip-hop evils on "You Can't Stop the Prophet." The commentary about inner-city plagues arising from spiritual ignorance only continued on "Ain't the Devil Happy," with Jeru preaching knowledge of self as the only rescue from greed and violence. Jeru also courted some controversy with "Da Bichez," at first explaining, "I'm not talkin' 'bout the queens...not the sisters...not the young ladies," but later admitting his thoughts ("most chicks want minks, diamonds, or Benz"). His flow and delivery were natural, his themes were impressive, and he was able to make funky rhymes out of intellectual hyperbole like: "Written on these pages is the ageless, wisdom of the sages/Ignorance is contagious." It lacks a landmark track, but The Sun Rises in the East stands alongside Nas' Illmatic (released the same year, and also boasting the work of Premier) as one of the quintessential East Coast records.

Hip-hop : 8 producteurs de légende

Peut-on imaginer Guru sans DJ Premier et De La Soul sans Prince Paul ? Derrière chaque rappeur iconique et chaque groupe culte, il y a un producteur visionnaire qui a appris de ses aînés et développé son propre son. Du pionnier Marley Marl, qui posa les bases de la production moderne en exploitant les capacités des premiers samplers, à la comète J Dilla qui, avant sa mort à 32 ans, a réussi à durablement imprimer sa marque, en passant par la révolution sonique ourdie par le Bomb Squad et la domination sans partage sur la West Coast de Dr Dre, tour d’horizon des pontes de studio qui ont régné pendant trente ans sur le monde du hip-hop.

Future, tragédie en trois actes

Avec les mixtapes “Monster”, “Beast Mode” et “56 Nights”, sorties à quelques semaines d'intervalle entre octobre 2014 et mars 2015, Future a repris le contrôle de sa carrière et offert au rap contemporain l'un de ses tournants. Retour sur l'ascension chaotique du rappeur le plus important et le plus fascinant de son temps.

A Tribe Called Quest, old school is the new school

Il y a 30 ans paraissait "People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm". Sans chaînes en or, sans flingues et sans ego trip, les New-Yorkais d’A Tribe Called Quest chamboulaient, dès ce premier album, l’histoire du rap en élevant le genre spirituellement et en allant puiser leurs samples dans l’univers du jazz.
