Album Description

For some strange reason, Kevin Gates rarely appears on the shortlist of today’s most important rappers. However, the Louisiana native who started out with local legends Lil Boosie and Weebie in the mid-2000s is one of the most gifted and regular rappers out there. The ex-prodigy, who was promised a great career under the Young Money banner (having caught Lil Wayne and Birdman’s attention), instead took the plunge and made a name for himself with an impressive series of self-produced mixtapes. He received critical acclaim in 2013 with The Luca Brasi Story, a string of sensitive street-rap hymns rapped and sung to perfection. Following his next mixtape, Stranger Than Fiction, the major record label Atlantic bet on Gates but it wasn’t until 2016 that he saw huge success with Islah, his first official album carried by two huge hits (2 Phones and Really Really).

On I’m Him, the Baton Rouge rapper reveals his most masterful vocal acrobatics and his best sung refrains. Not taking any downtime, and remaining alone at the mic on all seventeen short tracks, Kevin Gates sits his competitors down for a lesson in rap and gives his listeners countless reasons to admire to his vocal prowess, fluctuating speeds and incomparable hooks (particularly on Push It).

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

Stax, Sounds Like The South...

Motown in the North. And Stax in the South. Two quite distinct conceptions of soul music. In the southern humidity of Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and a few others invented a unique groove imbibed with blues and above all gospel.

Kamasi Washington, the sax of Angels

After his major success with a triple album, he’s now back with a double one! Kamasi Washington charms and intrigues well beyond the jazz sphere. Working with Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, and most importantly as the head of the West Coast Get Down collective, the charismatic saxophonist from Los Angeles brings an incredible wave of excitement to the contemporary jazz scene.
