When a trio of young rappers began gaining traction under the collaborative moniker YBN, astute listeners were quick to point out comparisons with the young rappers and star-powered rap groups who came before them. In particular, YBN Nahmir's cockiness and big personality were foiled by YBN Cordae's whip-smart lyricism in a way that mirrored the roles of Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt in Odd Future. YBN were more of a collective than they were collaborators, and Cordae's singles and mixtape contributions were marked by complexly constructed rhymes delivered with a style that nodded more and more to hip-hop's golden era as he went. On his debut studio album, The Lost Boy, Cordae emerges in bold, colorful strides, joined by some of rap's key players on an album as adventurous as it is thoughtful. His intricate flows take shape over an ever-shifting palette of instrumentals, from the slithery trap beats of "Have Mercy" and "Broke as Fuck" to the nostalgic summery beat and wistful electric piano of the Chance the Rapper-assisted "Bad Idea." The album moves between styles, landing on infectious pop with "RNP," a melody-forward tune produced by J. Cole that sees Cordae and Anderson .Paak trading verses about living the good life. Themes of family, community, and redemption find their way into the lyrics among the sex, cars, and tales of past struggles. Cordae's dexterous lyrical delivery sometimes mutates into sincerely sung verses, as on the R&B-tinged "Way Back Home." The rapper's skills aren't in question on The Lost Boy, but the album sometimes overshoots in its ambition, aiming for too many styles to hit them all with excellence. It's still a strong collection, and when Cordae strikes a perfect balance of mellow production and lyrical power on standout tracks like "We Gon Make It," it points to even more fully formed work ahead from a strong talent just getting started. ~ Fred Thomas

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. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

MF Doom, The Masked Man

Daniel Dumile, aka MF DOOM, has lived a thousand lives and his career has been a succession of false starts and bright flashes. Before his well-deserved semi-retirement Dumile was 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, the “go-to-guy” of the independent rap scene from the 2000s and then some kind of Indie messiah knighted 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.

DJ-Kicks: the history of the compilation that redefined electronic music

“DJ-Kicks is the most important DJ mix series of all time,” wrote Mixmag, the leading magazine for electronic music in England. It’s hard to fault them: since 1995, the German label !K7 hasn’t made the slightest mistake on more than 60 volumes by entrusting their mixes to incomparable artists. A pioneer of the genre at a time when the format wasn’t commonplace, the label managed to release club mixes by making electronic music accessible to the mainstream audience.
