21 Savage seems to go from strength to strength. Gold releases Savage Mode and Issa Album, hit singles such as X and No Heart and collaborations with the likes of Drake, Cardi B, Post Malone, Future and Offset (with whom he released Without Warning) have all contributed to the Atlanta rapper’s quick rise to the top of the rap game.

This latest release, i am > i was, is 21 Savage’s second solo album and includes collaborations with J Cole (a lot), Offset (1.5), Post Malone (all my friends) and Childish Gambino (monster) amongst various others. Not too shabby a lineup. The production team for the album includes Southside, Metro Boomin and Wheezy to name a few. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard top 200 and stayed at the top spot for two consecutive weeks, and deservedly so. 21 Savage fills this album with honest and hard-hitting lyrics over unrelenting beats, focusing on often troubling experiences from his past. Despite the nature of the lyrics, 21 never forces the issue and delivers these tracks with a laid-back tone and a well-polished flow that he switches up from track to track. The highlights of the album include a lot, on which he reflects on the effects of some past experiences (including the death of his brother), all my friends, where 21 provides a platform for Post Malone to strut his stuff, can’t leave without it and asmr. But in all honesty, weak points on this album are few and far between. On the penultimate track ,letter 2 my momma, the rapper pays a heartwarming tribute to his mother, a very nice touch. This deluxe edition includes the bonus track out for the night (part 2) featuring Travis Scott. It goes without saying that rap fans will be eagerly awaiting whatever 21 has in store for us next. © Euan Decourt/Qobuz

Kendrick Lamar, an Autopsy of a Phenom

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

DJ-Kicks: the Compilation that Redefined Electronic Music

"DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series ever." It was Mixmag, the English reference magazine for electronic music that wrote it. It's hard to deny it: since 1995, the German label !K7 has been making flawless albums with more than 60 volumes by entrusting its mixes to leading artists. Pioneer of the genre at a time when this art form was not widely known, the label succeeded in introducing the mix outside of the clubs while popularising electronic music with the general public.
