Busta Rhymes’s tenth album release couldn’t have come at a better time. While America is being torn apart by a historic presidential election, Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God is like a political hot potato. Through alluding to the end of the world and predicting an apocalypse, the New York rapper is getting political once more. It was the case in 2016 when Trump was elected and it’s the case again now. And he’s invited along a load of legendary producers: Nottz (the most involved amongst them), Pete Rock, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Swizz Beatz, Rockwilder… It’s a dream team. This amazing album is the archetype of a record that marries a respect for the past with a look to the future. The album opener E.L.E.2 Intro sets the tone: beatmaker Nottz pays tribute to New York rap by sampling Ahmad Jamal’s track I Love Music (1970) just like Pete Rock did in 1984 on Nas’s The World Is Yours. They’re three pillars of New York culture. He teams up with Mariah Carey once again on Where I Belong, reminding us of their 2002 hit I Know What You Want. Though it’s by sampling Louis Farrakhan’s speeches (E.L.E.2: The Wrath Of God), sounds from anti-Trump protests (The Purge) and by predicting America’s demise and rebirth (Satanic) that Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God takes on a real - and frankly revolutionary - quality. Busta Rhymes has never made music just for mere entertainment. He feels a need to use his flow for social commentary and to try to change mentalities. All for the greater good. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

MF Doom, The Masked Man

Daniel Dumile, alias MF DOOM, lived a thousand lives and his career was a succession of false starts and bright flashes. Before passing away on the 31st of October, 2020, Dumile had been a young virtuoso rapper welcomed with open arms by the music industry, then an outcast that sneaked back onto the scene through the back door after years of wandering (now masked), the 'go-to-guy' of independent rap during the 2000s and then some kind of Indie messiah as dubbed by Thom Yorke and Flying Lotus. Elusive, whimsical, a trickster and a money maker, DOOM rewrote the rules of rap music, rubbed people up the wrong way and paved the way for a whole generation of MCs.

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.

Nas, human after all

Nas became a legend at 20 years old. On his first attempt, this rapper coming from Queensbridge, New York, was already everything: an extraordinary technician, a striking narrator, a savior. But what happens next? How to evolve? How to surpass yourself when the industry regards you as the chosen one? How to age in a youth music when your first opus is your supreme work?
