Let's face it: If any year needed a new album from Public Enemy, it was 2020. Faced with disease and unrest at every turn, PE returned to their original home, Def Jam, for What You Gonna Do When the Grid Goes Down?, a record that consciously reconnects with their past while addressing the present with a clear eye. At first, it's hard to avoid the chaos of the modern world, with Public Enemy pushing their "State of the Union (STFU)" and the existential digital quandary of the title track, but the record subtly shifts gears with "Public Enemy Number Won." Its title is a nod to "Public Enemy No. 1," a pivotal track from their 1987 debut, and it doesn't hide from the fact that neither Public Enemy nor their guests Mike D, Ad-Rock, and Run-DMC have been at this since the '90s. The vibe isn't necessarily nostalgic. Rather, it's an acknowledgment that the years have piled up, that PE and their peers are now not only the old guard, they're survivors. That's an undercurrent that runs through What You Gonna Do When the Grid Goes Down?: It finds room for additional cameos by Cypress Hill, Nas, Questlove, and Ice-T, fellow hip-hop veterans who have turned lifers. The departed are saluted on "Rest in Beats," too, and PE and Daddy-O wrestle with how today doesn't jibe with days gone by on "Yesterday Man," but this isn't a record stuck in the past, even if Public Enemy rely on their thick collage of classic soul, funk, and rock for What You Gonna Do's production. Instead, the album pulls off a trick: it's an affair that makes no apologies for the artist's advancing age while also sounding vibrant and alive. It helps that Chuck D sounds robust and Flavor Flav sounds lively as their performances keep pulling the album into the present. It's not the sound of a group resting on their laurels, it's the sound of a band summoning their strengths with a hint of sentiment to figure out how to deal with a world gone mad.

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 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 disparaître le 31 octobre 2020, 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.

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.
