Joe Buck said "Ten years is a long time for anything to hold one's attention." Things change. People lose interest. New things come along. Time flies. If something lasts 10 years, it has to be good, right?

It's almost 2020 and the output of hip-hop artists has increased dramatically in comparison to the genre's Golden Era(s). The abundance of emerging artists and new music doesn't often translate into timeless or memorable material. Sure, there is still a lot of great talent and new music to enjoy, but technology and the music industry have morphed so much in so little time, it has undeniably changed how we all create and consume.

Artists have picked up the pace, often releasing songs and new projects year round, while audiences have adapted, too, with higher expectations and even shorter attention spans. There's an endless stream of new and on-demand content, of all quality levels, all available right now. With that said, the shelf life of the average release is not what it used to be although some acts have found exception. In 2006 Insight the Truncator (Boston) and Damu the Fudgemunk (Washington DC), started recording their debut album under the moniker Y Society. Entitled, “Travel at Your Own Pace” (TAYOP) the album was first released in October 2007. In hindsight, the year would be one of the last years where albums were designed for long term digestion, and a handful of releases from the era survived as undisputed classics to the masses. Today, conceptual albums are almost archaic in a genre built upon storytelling and themes.

With TAYOP, Insight and Damu put the message in the music. The album title served the two as a roadmap to completion of its 13 songs and in return, the finished product serves as a navigation aid to the listener maneuvering through life within themselves and absorbing the outside world. From adventures of fiscal responsibility and imaginative tales of time travel to deconstructing one's obstructions and beyond, Insight's rhymes confidently steer the listener on whatever path they have chosen for themselves. The goal of the album is to empower. From start to finish, the array of uplifting lyrics is somewhat like modern day proverbs, but not proverbial.

Musically, Damu the Fudgemunk pulls from a deep body of influences, that give it it's unique identity and charm while paying homage to the foundations of their predecessors. The Legendary Marley Marl cosigned the album as a "refreshing" effort of the times. For a project of such character, the general reception does not reflect the magnitude of acclaim by its cult following. Receiving mixed reviews in a foggy time in the industry, “Travel at Your Own Pace” still managed to sell out of its original production. However, it has been long out of print for a decade. In response, original vinyl pressings have fetched several hundreds of dollars per copy in the used online markets of Discogs and eBay. The progressing careers of both Insight and Damu in addition to their label, Redefinition Records (also celebrating 10 years) prove that in a murky 2007, they all knew where they were traveling and how to arrive. Even with their growth, a “Travel at Your Own Pace” repress has remained an inevitable inquiry and reoccurring expectation to loyal supporters. The answer is here and the wait is finally over.

Packaged in a deluxe 2LP 10-year anniversary edition, “Travel at your Own Pace” is back on store shelves featuring brand new cover art, 5 rare & unreleased exclusive tracks, a special insert poster complete with lyrics and limited edition colored vinyl.

In conjunction with the 2LP, the album's lead single, "Never Off (On & On) B/W "Pyramids to the Ghetto" is available on 7". Considered a classic in 2017 for it's artistic quality and rarity, this is an album that won't go unnoticed by collectors. “Travel At Your Own Pace”.

Harleighblu heard Bluestaeb’s music for the first time in London’s Jazz Café in 2016 and approached him to work on an album shortly after that. The multinational duo decided to search for new ways to express their common love for uncompromised hip-hop and R&B. Bluestaeb’s soulful approach to beat making complements Harleighblu’s performance perfectly as she stakes her claim on the neo soul and hip-hop territory she always identified with as an artist. Speaking about the collaboration Bluestaeb says: “When I got the first demo recordings from Harleighblu, I was blown away. I’ve worked with multiple singers before, but this time I felt that somebody finally really knew how to handle my beats properly and turn them into songs.“ Their debut project “She” achieves a distinctive sound that merges old school aesthetics with a new school attitude and organic instrumentation, progressive neo soul and beat heavy hip-hop, whilst Harleighblu’s unique vocals push through the sonic boundaries of R&B. “She” was recorded at Manolo Purple Studio, the Berlin homebase of Bluestaeb and his longtime collaborator S. Fidelity, who recorded, executive produced and mixed the album and accompanied the artists throughout the entire creative process. The record also features Blue’s Jakarta Records label mate JuJu Rogers and a variety of instrumentalists hailing from the UK, France and Germany.

Harleighblu introduced herself in 2013 with the charismatic, beat-heavy soul of her Tru Thoughts debut LP “Forget Me Not”, which was championed by 1xtra’s Mistajam and BBC 6 Music’s Don Letts. Since then she has not looked back, garnering critical acclaim for her unique style from the likes of Complex, Dummy, The Line Of Best Fit and Clash to name but a few. She has performed at prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Kendal Calling, Boomtown and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide festival.

Hailed as an up and coming ‘queen of soul’ with references to Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse, Harleighblu’s signature sound has matured into a frank, self-possessed voice that pulls no punches and makes no apologies. Bringing us honest, feminine, yet unrepentant lyrical touches and establishing herself as one of the UK's most promising young artists.

On the other hand, Bluestaeb made his name through his releases via German tastemaker label Jakarta Records, where he released alongside Kaytranada, Ta-Ku and Mura Masa. His solo efforts ‘Rodalquilar’ (2015) and ‘Everything Is Always a Process’ (2018) and his collaboration project “LIT - Lost In Translation” with rapper JuJu Rogers have been internationally praised for their warm characteristic sound receiving airplays on Soulection, BBC 1, Rinse.FM and many more. His works have amassed more than 20 million streams and Bluestaeb has played shows and festival all over Europe, including Melt Festival and splash! Festival.

Auch das neueste Album von Tyler ist Dokument seiner stetigen Weiterentwicklung als Künstler. Er ist nicht nur Rapper, Produzent, Modemacher, er ist auch Musiker und Musikfan, der aus seinem großen Genre-Fundus schöpft, dem er seit seiner Kindheit offen gegenüberstand. Auf "Igor" platzt er mit diesem Background und voller Schaffensfreude aus dem Verschrobener-Skater-Rapper-Image heraus und das wurde mit einem Einstieg in die Billboard Top 200 auf Platz 1 gewürdigt, wobei das generell ja nichts heißen mag, aber in diesem Fall ist es schon bemerkenswert und ein klares Zeichen für eine wachsende Akzeptanz von queeren MCs. Ihm hier gleich Vorsatz zu unterstellen, wäre nicht ganz fair, handelt es sich hier keinesfalls um eine Popversion von Tyler, the Creator. Er ist eben nicht "nur" ein Rapper, er ist alles, was er gerade ist, wenn er es will. Checkt unbedingt auf YouTube: Tyler the Creator Funkmaster Flex Interview.

Griselda Records' own Benny The Butcher released his Tana Talk 3 project in the winter of 2018, the album was produced entirely by Griselda mainstay Daringer and Alchemist and included appearances from his Griselda/Shady Records label-mates Westside Gunn and Conway and Royce 5’9” and Meyhem Lauren.

Tana Talk 3 peaked at #4 on Apple’s Hip-Hop chart upon its release and was a mainstay on the charts for months after. Commercial success aside, the album also resulted in tremendous critical acclaim, as it was included in “Best of 2018” lists from Pitchfork, Complex & HipHopWired which crowned Tana Talk 3 as its favorite album of 2018 and a nod from Complex as one of its 20 Rappers to watch for 2019.

For further proof Benny’s star is on the rise, he was one of a select few artists to be invited by J. Cole to participate in the recording sessions for Dreamville’s forthcoming Revenge Of The Dreamers III compilation and he recently made “Headlines” alongside his Griselda brethren Westside Gunn and Conway guesting on DJ Premier’s new single.

The Plugs I Met, which was released on compact disc in late July, features collaborations with Pusha T, Jadakiss, Conway, RJ Payne, Alchemist and Daringer. Benny also released the projects first single, “18 Wheeler,” which features Pusha T. Now under the management of Roc Nation, The Plugs I Met is further proof that the future is now for Benny The Butcher.

“The anticipation for this project is crazy. I came out with Tana Talk 3 and it’s a classic and everybody wants to see what I am going to do next. People are on my dick, you can bet that. It’s like they are pitting me against myself” Benny exclaimed to Complex. “People are waiting to see if I will fail, or if I will succeed. Trust me, I delivered with The Plugs I Met; I took my time with it. It’s fucking crazy!"

The songs on this record were created over the span of about 4 or 5 years (roughly 2004 - 2009), though every track was revisited, mixed, and mastered in 2009. The record displays the full spectrum of the “CYNE sound,” including the growth of the band, our collective tastes, and the process of our songwriting. It starts on a positive note about moving forward, building community, and taking on personal responsibility (these are themes that resonate throughout the record). At times, the record grows into something very ethereal and cosmic, alongside a contrast of something that hits harder, musically and lyrically. With each subsequent ‘movement’ we see a blend of introspective thought, social commentary, and a sound weighted in a more classic, uplifting tradition. This album constantly sways back and forth between the lines of classic hip hop, textural music, and a progressive selection of words and sound that are definitively CYNE.

Joining CYNE on “Water For Mars” are track collaborators Daedelus, Depth Affect, and Ape School, as well as remixers ROM (featuring Roberto Lange/Helado Negro), Mexicans With Guns, and Jay Appleseed.

A call to arms, “Hip-Hop" just sounds like a revolution, and is to be heard loud! Surprisingly enough, this song's legacy may be most defined by its use as the bed for Dave Chappelle's entrance music for his show on Comedy Central. But beyond that, this song remains as one of the greatest Hip Hop songs of all time.

"That's The World" from Houston emcee Anti-Lilly and Portland, Maine producer Phoniks is the third installment of their hip-hop trilogy which featured 2014's "Stories From The Brass Section" and 2017's "It's Nice Outside". After going from exchanging beats over email in 2014 to now touring the world together the chemistry between the two has never been more evident than on their latest release.

Once again Anti-Lilly is laying his therapy sessions on record, speaking on his substance abuse, trust issues, relationships and coping with his parents divorce. But despite the negativity he touches on, the young Houston poet embraces the duality of life—taking the good with the bad and trying to find a ray of light in dark times. His outer pressures help craft the jewels he lays over Phoniks jazzy production as he showcases his mature, honest perspective across the albums 12 tracks.

“More than anything, I try to get a sense of the mood of society as a whole. The subtle signals that humans send each other, the way people behave, their frustrations and ebbs and flows. In my part of the world, people are scared. There's rampant homelessness, and a real fear of falling into generational poverty. People are addicted to, and addled by distraction; they're angry and confused, and disaffected by their own governmental institutions. There’re songs on the record that are inspired by this energy and seek to harness it, to make sense of it. In some cases, there's attempts to salve the wound; in others, the songs merely observe but don't offer solutions. I want the album to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era...Our Pathetic Age.” - DJ Shadow

Eight years later, the Brooklyn/Philly duo finally reemerage with their long-awaited new single, "Desires".
Rashad hasn't lost a step. This time around the gifted MC goes into detail the desires he has and what it takes to get there along with the obstacles he encounters, backed by Confidence's typical raw but also soulful boom-bap production.

Genre:Hip Hop
Illmatic, the 1994 studio debut of Nasir "Nas" Jones, was more than just a critical success for the Queensbridge-based rapper. At a time when East Coast hip-hop was increasingly being taken less seriously than their West Coast counterparts, Illmatic's raw jazz and soul-based production, dire atmosphere and lyrics, coupled with Nas' uncompromising flow was integral in restoring interest in the East Coast as a hotbed of hip-hop artistry. Along with key releases from Wu-Tang Clan and Notorious B.I.G.,it shifted attention away from the funky, dayglo synth-based G-funk coming out of California and back to the grimy streets of New York. After such an unprecedented debut record, expectations were understandably high for Nas' follow-up. What came next threw critics and fans for a loop, but was no less influential than Illmatic, and would become the most commercially successful album in the entirety of Nas' discography. The 1996 sophomore follow-up was titled It Was Written, and in contrast to the urban bleakness of his debut, had Nas dipping his toes into the world of mafioso rap. Amidst production from heavy hitters like Trackmasters, Dr. Dre, L.E.S., Havoc of Mobb Deep, and Illmatic-collaborator DJ Premier, among others, Nas weaves evocative narratives of gang warfare, downtrodden neighborhoods, drug deals gone awry, and gangsta triumph, against a backdrop of samples from Sam Cooke, Etta James, the Isley Brothers, and even Chuck Mangione.

It Was Written was not hard up for top-tier guests either, featuring major guest turns from Lauryn Hill and Joel "JoJo" Hailey of K-Ci & JoJo. It also introduced the world to The Firm, the brief Nas-led msupergroup featuring rappers AZ, Foxy Brown, and Cormega. mIt even managed to cause some minor controversy in the hip-hop mcommunity for its collaboration with West Coast producer Dr. Dre, at a time when the East Coast/West Coast rap feud was reaching a fever pitch, briefly attracting the ire of one Tupac Shakur. Not only was It Was Written received warmly by critics, but became a major commercial success, reaching the top of the Billboard 200 charts, reaching platinum sales status four times, and alongside malbums like Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, helped usher in the era of mafioso rap in the mainstream. It rendered chart hits out of singles like the Eurhythmics-mimicking "Street Dreams", and the Grammy-nominated "If I Ruled The World Imagine That", and proved to be a major influence on artists like Kendrick Lamar, Lupe mFiasco, and many more.

Harleighblu heard Bluestaeb’s music for the first time in London’s Jazz Café in 2016 and approached him to work on an album shortly after that. The multinational duo decided to search for new ways to express their common love for uncompromised hip-hop and R&B. Bluestaeb’s soulful approach to beat making complements Harleighblu’s performance perfectly as she stakes her claim on the neo soul and hip-hop territory she always identified with as an artist. Speaking about the collaboration Bluestaeb says: “When I got the first demo recordings from Harleighblu, I was blown away. I’ve worked with multiple singers before, but this time I felt that somebody finally really knew how to handle my beats properly and turn them into songs.“ Their debut project “She” achieves a distinctive sound that merges old school aesthetics with a new school attitude and organic instrumentation, progressive neo soul and beat heavy hip-hop, whilst Harleighblu’s unique vocals push through the sonic boundaries of R&B. “She” was recorded at Manolo Purple Studio, the Berlin homebase of Bluestaeb and his longtime collaborator S. Fidelity, who recorded, executive produced and mixed the album and accompanied the artists throughout the entire creative process. The record also features Blue’s Jakarta Records label mate JuJu Rogers and a variety of instrumentalists hailing from the UK, France and Germany.

Harleighblu introduced herself in 2013 with the charismatic, beat-heavy soul of her Tru Thoughts debut LP “Forget Me Not”, which was championed by 1xtra’s Mistajam and BBC 6 Music’s Don Letts. Since then she has not looked back, garnering critical acclaim for her unique style from the likes of Complex, Dummy, The Line Of Best Fit and Clash to name but a few. She has performed at prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Kendal Calling, Boomtown and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide festival.

Hailed as an up and coming ‘queen of soul’ with references to Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse, Harleighblu’s signature sound has matured into a frank, self-possessed voice that pulls no punches and makes no apologies. Bringing us honest, feminine, yet unrepentant lyrical touches and establishing herself as one of the UK's most promising young artists.

On the other hand, Bluestaeb made his name through his releases via German tastemaker label Jakarta Records, where he released alongside Kaytranada, Ta-Ku and Mura Masa. His solo efforts ‘Rodalquilar’ (2015) and ‘Everything Is Always a Process’ (2018) and his collaboration project “LIT - Lost In Translation” with rapper JuJu Rogers have been internationally praised for their warm characteristic sound receiving airplays on Soulection, BBC 1, Rinse.FM and many more. His works have amassed more than 20 million streams and Bluestaeb has played shows and festival all over Europe, including Melt Festival and splash! Festival.

Weighing in at 11 tracks, which includes the vinyl-only bonus track of Zilla Rocca’s Remix of “Go,” the album places the listener in a seemingly post apocalyptic Detroit where the mentality is feast or famine. The LP plays as one long narrative of Guilty’s day-to-day survival in Detroit’s concrete jungle, all set to the backdrop of Small Professor’s ominous, percussion heavy production. Featuring guest appearances from Detroit’s Boldy James, AG (of D.I.T.C.), Elucid, and Castle, with both Statik Selektah and DJ Revolution handling the Technic 1200s.
The vinyl launch falls on the week of the five year anniversary since Highway Robbery was first released - available for the first time in a classic black vinyl format. Ranked among the top 25 albums of the year in 2013 by HipHopDX. “Guilty Simpson and Small Professor find common ground on ‘Highway Robbery,’ a 10-track album that plays out like a crime drama from an old pulp magazine.” Upon the album’s initial launch, Highway Robbery was supported by the likes of Complex, XXL, Hip-Hop Wired, The Boombox, Okayplayer, Ambrosia for Heads, DJBooth, HipHopDX, 2DOPEBOYZ, Nah Right, OnSMASH, and more.

Genre:Hip Hop
Wun Two remains one of the most envied lo-fi hip-hop producers on the planet. Consistently pumping out thematic releases from last summer’s Pirata to his ever-consistent Snow series, his first vinyl release through Fat Beats since his 2016 Baker’s Dozen was spawned by a horror movie binge watch. “Nosferatu represents the atmosphere of Halloween and cold and darker days. I plugged the SP into my TV and recorded movie dialogs and sound samples while watching. At the end I had a lot of material/sound sources...I liked the outcome of it and decided to release it for Halloween.” Wun Two said.

Inspired in part by composers Maurice Jarre and Bernard Herrmann, Wun Two wanted to create a project that didn’t emote the somewhat-depressive feelings of certain scores, but an atmosphere of tension and suspense so often associated with Hitchcock and Stephen King novels.

This deluxe picture disc LP not only includes 2 bonus beats not included on the original digital release, but an additional track featuring vocals from CRIMEAPPLE. “My feature list is very short as I prefer to release instrumental tracks. But CRIMEAPPLE is definitely one of the most interesting MC´s now and it´s really great that we could win him for a contribution,” added Wun Two on the rare appearance from an MC over his beats.
Releasing this Halloween in a strict one-time vinyl pressing, Nosferatu is a perfect accompaniment as the weather gets colder and the nights darker.

together with voicemail’s the young Houston rhyme-spitter
received from friends and family trying to reach him while he
was shut out from the world. Through it all, Anti emerges from
his experiences with a renewed optimism, letting the world
know “It’s Nice Outside” despite all the pain and suffering he’s
withstood.

Danny Brown’s fifth studio LP uknowhatimsayin¿ drops at an intriguing point in the rapper’s career. After breaking out with his second album XXX, consolidating fame with the follow-up Old and then blowing the game wide open through 2016’s landmark Atrocity Exhibition, Brown’s status as king of the underground feels assured these days. The question as he surveys his domain, is; what next?

Brown’s answer is to make his most focused record yet. A svelte eleven tracks - short when compared to the sprawling opuses of his past - uknowhatimsayin¿ is a more thoughtful affair than anything Brown has previously released. Gone are the tales of all-night benders yammered with cartoonish intensity over beats that sound like an EDM rave in hell. Instead Brown comes off as considered and in control, his flows spun out with poise and eloquence.

The production here befits the changes in Brown’s delivery. While Brown has always been a great rapper, uknowhatimsayin¿ will go down as his first hip-hop record. While the instrumentals here are laced with the psychedelic potency of Atrocity Exhibition, they also rumble and slap in a manner that recalls classic 90’s boom-bap. This change in sound is unsurprising when you consider uknowhatimsayin¿’s executive producer - none other than the legendary Q-Tip.

uknowhatimsayin¿’s features list also feels carefully curated. JPEGMAFIA, heir apparent to Brown’s throne, gets in amongst it on ‘Negro Spiritual’. Unsurprisingly this new energy turns ‘Negro Spiritual’ into one of the album’s wildest tracks, a head-spinner that would have slotted easily into Atrocity Exhibition. Besides Run The Jewels and Brown schooling younger MCs on ‘3 Tearz’ the other guest spots are reserved for singers - Obongjayar turns in vocals on two tracks while Blood Orange croons softly on penultimate cut ‘Shine’.

Danny Brown is older, wiser, and possibly better than ever on new LP uknowhatimsayin¿

The entire project was produced by Parental and written by Carta’ P. over the span of two years. The two musical juggernauts collaborated and recorded over twenty songs together. Throughout the project, you can hear the musical chemistry along with the development
of the album.

Carta’ P. is part of the hip hop underground group ADAGIO! from the mid to late 90’s. A lot of the same musical influences and lyrical creativity from ADAGIO! can be heard through this latest collaboration.

Only 1 per cutomer! CRIMEAPPLE's Viridi Panem is a deep dive into the complex dynamics of the eternal paper chase. "It's a conceptual piece about capitalism, greed and excess," says the charismatic heavy-bearded New Jersey-based MC, who adds that the album’s title translates from Latin into "Green Bread." The eight track project rolls out like a modern film noir starring a protagonist making connections with models in Medellín, splurging through fine dining scenarios, and navigating his way through a cast of aspirational characters lured into a clandestine contraband realm.

Viridi Panem builds on the buzz of this summer's Medallo album, which CRIMEAPPLE cut with Cypress Hill figurehead DJ Muggs. Before making moves with hip-hop legends and collaborating with modern scene leaders like the Griselda Records camp, CRIMEAPPLE announced his talent with a relentless freestyle on Statik Selektah's Shade45 radio show back in 2017. That move paved the way for a run of four breakthrough EPs—including the Halloween-inspired Sweet Dreams and the Street Fighter-themed Perfect franchise—all produced by CRIMEAPPLE's long-time cohort Buck Dudley, who also masterminds the complete sonic backdrop to latest sureshot Viridi Panem.

The dark and intoxicating world depicted on Viridi Panem is relayed by CRIMEAPPLE in captivating fashion. His intricate flows mix up vivid imagery with bursts of rapid-fire syllable spitting and splashes of Spanish slang that represent the MC's Colombian heritage. CRIMEAPPLE's graphic bars are matched by Buck Dudley's beats, which conjure a shadowy, danger-fraught atmosphere through the use of eerie wavering synths, echo-enhanced snares and growling bass tones. Bringing a touch of hip-hop history to the project, on "Entenmann's" and "Alium" CRIMEAPPLE interpolates vintage Bad Boy and Notorious B.I.G. lyrics, paying respect to a previous generation of paper chasers and letting the world know it's always been about the Benjamins.

Diggin In The Crates (D.I.T.C.) was born out of a group of artists who began making noise in the late ‘80s and into the next decade and beyond—namely Lord Finesse, Diamond D, and Fat Joe. After well-received albums, an official, wider collective was founded that also included O.C., Big L, Buckwild, and producer-rapper combo, Show & A.G. (originally known as Showbiz & A.G.).

The crew proceeded to drop a run of sublime records, including Show & A.G.’s Soul Clap EP (1992), their full-length debut Runaway Slave (1992), followed by Goodfellas in 1995. Show & A.G.’s next project, Full Scale, arrived in 1998 and featured appearances from O.C., KRS-One, Big Pun, the Ghetto Dwellas and verses from members of D.I.T.C. including Diamond D, Big L and Lord Finesse.

In 2002 a CD version titled Full Scale LP (using the same artwork) was released with 10 additional tracks which had originally been released on various 12" singles and projects in the late 1990s. The project had never been released on vinyl in its entirety – until now.
Production on Full Scale was handled by Showbiz and A.G. except for "Time To Get This Money" which was produced by long-time collaborator Ahmed, and "Hold Mines" and "Hidden Crates" which were produced by DJ Greyboy.

The assortment of guest features doesn’t detract from A.G., a masterful emcee with a no-nonsense style that is simple but impactful. Full Scale follows the tried and true blueprint from Show & AG’s earlier classics cementing its place in hip hop history.

It’s been 6 years after the last collab from Statik Selektah & Termanology as 1982. Since the last album, 2012, both have dropped critically acclaimed albums such as What Goes Around & More Politics. They return with their signature sound on songs such as “Can’t Let It Go” & “Different Now”. They also continue the tradition of introducing new talent, as they previously have with the late Mac Miller, Action Bronson, & Freddie Gibbs. Meet UFO Fev, Fat Joe’s newest signee. CJ Fly of Pro Era & battle-champ NEMS also appear. STILL 1982 fills the gap in an era of auto tune & repetitive sounds that
will last the test of time. We have teamed up with the legendary duo to release "Still 1982" on vinyl as a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies, 300 pressed on black vinyl.

US Hip Hop

Wer hätte vor über 40 Jahren gedacht, dass US Hip Hop einen solch immensen Einfluss auf die Sprache von Generationen ausübt? Amerikanischer Hip Hop entstand in den frühen Siebziger Jahren, den Grundstein legte DJ Kool Herc mit seinen Block Partys. Anfangs sorgten MCs noch für die verbale Unterstützung der DJs, doch schon bald drängten sie sich in die Hautrolle. Spätestens als der SP1200 den TR-808 verdrängte, konnten HipHop-Kids mühelos Zeilen der wichtigsten Wortakrobaten zitieren. In der zweiten Hälfte der Achtziger Jahre mauserte sich US Hip Hop von einer Subkultur zu einem globalen Hype. Zuerst in den USA, dann in Europa und Japan…

Die Golden Era des US-Rap

Slick Rick brachte das Storytelling auf die nächste Stufe, Public Enemy mauserten sich zum politischen Sprachrohr der Schwarzen Gemeinde. Die Ultramagnetic MC’s gaben textlich und musikalisch einen Vorgeschmack auf den US Hip Hop der Zukunft. Das Kollektiv Native Tongues stellte die besonnene Alternative zur Sprache der Straße dar. Und bald entdeckten Produzenten wie DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock oder Q-Tip Jazz als Sample-Quelle. Während an der East Coast die Rapper mit großem Vokabular wetteiferten, zelebrierte man an der Westküste den Gangsta-Rap. Mit durchschlagendem Erfolg, was man schnell merkte. Mit Kool G Rap oder Schoolly D gab es an der Ostküste bereits MCs, die vorher wortgewandt den Lifestyle eines Gangsters thematisiert hatten, doch Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, Dr. Dre und DJ Yella waren radikaler, offensiver, einfach lauter und medienwirksamer.

US Hip Hop von den 1990er Jahren bis heute

In den Neunziger Jahren entwickelte sich US Hip Hop dann zu einem Massenphänomen. Die Beats aus dem MPC und clevere Wortspiele begeisterten die Massen. Rap Tracks führten nicht nur die Hip-Hop Charts an. Mit Hilfe von Biggie Smalls definierte Puff Daddy den Mainstream neu. Heute sind einige der Golden Era-MCs der lebende Beweis dafür, dass man auch im gehobenen Alter noch fesselnde Reime abliefern kann. Bei diesem Thema fallen einem sofort Namen wie KRS-One, Kool Keith, Kool G Rap, GZA, Pharoahe Monch, Freddie Foxxx, Sadat X oder O.C. ein. Und auch nach über 25 Jahren im Geschäft rocken Produzenten wie Pete Rock, Large Professor oder DJ Premier noch das Pult im Studio. Neue Künstler aus allen Regionen der USA kreieren ihre eigene Version des US Hip Hop und begeistern sogar eingefleischte Old Schooler. Aber auch wenig beachtete Rapper aus den Neunziger Jahren gelingt manchmal erst im höheren Alter der Durchbruch. Has-Lo, Roc Marciano, KA, Billy Woods, Crews wie Pro Era, Odd Future oder A$AP Mob und frische Gesichter wie Your Old Droog oder RAST RFC drücken der amerikanischen Rap-Musik heute ihren Stempel auf. El-P, Apollo Brown, The Alchemist oder L’Orange beleben währenddessen die Sound-Landschaft des US Hip Hop. Und von generationsübergreifenden Gemeinschaftsprojekten profitieren MC, Produzent und Fans.
