GREY Area is, as usual, released on Simz’ own label. The cover reminds one of a Harcourt studio photograph. It is Little Simz’s third album and with this release the artist reaches a whole new artistic level since the release of A Curious Tale of Trials and Persons, in which the 21-year old London native also encourages women to take control. On Women can be Kings Simbi Ajikawo collaborated with Lauryn Hill and Kendrick Lamar. She has also been one of the opening acts for Gorillaz. As she gained musical confidence she became one of the most innovative rap artists of the time. Between the instrumental productions of Inflo, the jazz influenced tune Flowers, the dreamlike beats and keyboard trickery of 101 FM, or the lyrical opulence (with strings, piano and flutes) of Offence, Simz opened the doors of her studio to many artists: A jaunty reggae with Chronixx (Wounds), an appearance of Little Dragon on Pressure, R&B revelation Cleo Sol appears for the suave chorus of Selfish and Michael Kiwanuka adds his magic on Flowers. The album’s impressive artists’ appearance as well as its sophisticated compositions are working as counterpoint to Lil Simz’s rough yet precise flow. The album is both luxurious and accessible. A true masterpiece! © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Kendrick Lamar, an Autopsy of a Phenom

He is revered both by the mainstream and the underground. And rarely a rapper has gathered such unanimous support. But how did Kendrick Lamar manage to roll over the competition to such an extent? And his dominance could last for quite some time…

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.

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.
