Polo G is one of several late-2010s Chicago rappers to combine influences from their city's drill scene with more melodic hooks. While many of his peers got by on charisma and high-impact production, Polo G's lyricism sets him apart. Early single "Finer Things" announced his nuanced style as he switched gears from vulnerable uncertainty about his direction in life to bragging about his wealth in the same breath. The song's sentimental, piano-heavy beat served as a perfect instrumental for Polo G's introspective writing, and it connected with millions to become his first viral hit. Debut album Die a Legend delivers on the promise of early singles with 14 tracks of nonstop lyrical highlights and a production style equal shares hard-trap beats and melodic catchiness. Often debut releases from rappers with a massive hit are quickly assembled around that hit, but Die a Legend plays like a finely arranged statement. While "Finer Things" might be the strongest example of Polo G's mesh of lyrical excellence and sticky vocal lines, it's one of several versatile approaches. The airy production on "Battle Cry" leaves plenty of space for lyrics about losing friends to gang violence and fighting anxiety with self-medication. Depression, isolation, and healing from trauma come up as themes throughout Die a Legend, adding a deeper humanity to tales of raw street life and hustling to survive. Even as he rises from desperation and poverty to riches and stardom, Polo G's lyrics overflow with suspicion and sadness, distrustful of the fairweather friends who love him when he's on top and too smart to believe that fame is forever. There's a darkness even on huge bangers like "Pop Out," a would-be assertion of violence and confrontation that ends up feeling heavier and more resigned than aggressive. Much of Die a Legend finds its power in those heavy vibes. Polo G delivers his rhymes in unbroken flows, pouring out his soul, his struggles, and even his fears in a nonstop rush for the entirety of the album's 40 minutes. It's a dark place, but the painful honesty of these songs comes off as a bold and necessary purging of demons rather than emotional posturing. Direct and unflinching, Die a Legend is a masterful debut that stands a head above even the better acts in the crop of trap soundalikes.

Kendrick Lamar, autopsia di un fenomeno

La massa lo venera quanto l’underground. Ed è raro che un rapper riscuota un consenso così diffuso. Ma in che modo Kendrick Lamar è riuscito ad annientare la concorrenza? E pare che ci sia il rischio che duri ancora per un po’ di tempo…

Nas, le piccole fratture ordinarie di un genio del rap

A vent’anni Nas è diventato una leggenda. Dalla sua prima prova, questo rapper originario di Queensbridge, un quartiere di New York, è diventato tutto: il tecnico più bravo, il narratore convincente, il salvatore. E dopo, cos’è successo? Come evolversi, superarsi, quando i media ti considerano l’eletto? Come invecchiare in una musica da giovani, quando la tua prima opera è l’opera definitiva?

David Rodigan, la voce del reggae

Da quarant’anni David Rodigan è la voce del reggae alla radio britannica. Dai suoi inizi su BBC Radio London nel 1978, questo appassionato ha superato di gran lunga la funzione di animatore radio, andando a frequentare i club e i festival e diventando campione del mondo di soundclash, una gara tradizionale giamaicana nella quale dei DJ (i “selector”) si affrontano disco contro disco, avvalendosi di versioni speciali di hit reggae chiamate “dubplates” – l’artista modifica i testi per esaltare il nome del selector. Quando, all’inizio del 2018, ha pubblicato il libro My Life in Reggae, David Rodigan rievoca per Qobuz le sue canzoni segrete, i viaggi in Giamaica, il suo stare in scena frenetico e il suo incontro “mistico” con Bob Marley.
