Having already signed with the major label Atlantic before this album's release, Stranger Than Fiction completes rapper Kevin Gates' deal with the indie imprint Bread Winners' Association, but there's nothing hurried, throwaway, or otherwise "contractual obligation" about it. This dark, smart, lewd, and thoroughly entertaining effort finds the gravelly voiced, repugnant but regretful and reflective rapper taking the introspective style of Drake and putting in believable gangster settings, all while dropping some quirky party tracks along the way. Check the great "4:30 AM," "4 Legs and a Biscuit," or "Satellites" for proof, or jump right to the hedonistic "Thinking with My D**k," where the worlds of Pimp C and cloud rap collide, creating quite the druggy, strip-club spectacle. Guest spots from Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Starlito, but Gates holds them all in check, coming off as worthy ringleader in the Game or Birdman style. ~ David Jeffries

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul?

Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.
