Info :
Mos Def & Diverse - Wylin Out :
Vive les super-groupes de hip hop underground de la côte Est! "Wylin' Out" réunit tout de même Mos Def (de New York) et le rappeur Diverse (de Chicago), autour de beats concotés par Scott Herren, alias Prefuse 73 (d'Atlanta). Si ce n'est pas de la hype, ça... je ne m'y connais pas! C'est vraiment un super track de hip hop, pour le flow, les lyrics ou tout simplement les splendides beats fournis par Prefuse 73, mais on sent un peu trop le travail à distance (par email) et pas assez la réelle rencontre d'artistes. Un bien beau collage, cela dit.
Note : 5/5

RJD2 - True Confessions :
RJD2 a sorti un des albums hip hop de l'année, haut la main, "Deadringer", largement décrit dans la (non-)presse (pas vraiment-) musicale comme un croisement entre Dj Shadow et Moby. Bon, les consensus universaliens à la Moby, point de cela ici (tant mieux!), mais l'influence Shadow, elle, est assez évidente. En fait Shadow est quasiment un des seuls à utiliser des breaks rythmiques rock, voire hard rock, et le fait que Rjd2 s'y mette lui aussi et hop! La filiation est imposée. Mais Rjd2, moins scratcheur dingue que Shadow, passe peut-être lui plus de temps sur ses programmations, ses acalmies inquiétantes, ses arrangements de cordes, ses montées d'adrénalines... et ses soli de guitare rock! Grosse bombe hip rock, en tous cas.
Note : 5/5
