After a good ending of the year 2017 (Scrooge – Ghetto Gospel), we got here a real dope start of the New Year with the CD release of “L.A.mentaires Tracks” by Lil’Gee, an independent rapper from Rouen city, located in Normandie/France. He started rapping in 1996 with his cousin Don Kroozz, and in 1998 there were joined by Mou2s. In 2000, he decided to leave the band and began his solo career. “L.A.mentaires Tracks” album is basically a compilation of songs made between 2001 and 2017 with some of the songs recorded live. Lil’Gee himself played many instruments on this album (keyboard, bass, etc.) except for the guitars, which were played by Xtophe «Artech Xtudio» and Pierre Loiseau.
Being inspired by G-Funk Classics with influences of Californian rock, it turns out to be an extremely dope & laidback g-funk album with a lot of live instruments played on it.
September 15th brought to us some real good news: after some delay the album “Southside” by G-Wax Le Parano G was finally released in CD format: 18 tracks produced by Tony Beatmaker, Funklord Production, G-Neg, Dorsey Sick Joker, Sam-G, J-Box & G-Wax himself. A few songs of the album were flavored by Talkbox by Wadz, Hic Box & Sly Box. All in all, if you like dope French Gangsta rap / G-Funk, then this album is for you. Check out three videos at the bottom of this post & just see for yourself if you really wanna sleep on this tight G-Funk stuff.
Joh Joh Music is a G-Funk poducer/beatmaker from Strasbourg, France and frankly speaking we didn’t really hear much about him until recently when he hit us with the news about his “Good Times Album” release on September 2nd, 2017. This album is the perfect combination of dope g-funk tracks with some tight guest appearances such as OG Daddy V, Big2DaBoy, Sylk-E Fyne, Rekta, Mofak, Quictamac, Big Prodeje, Loesta, Havikk, WestCoast Stone, Von Jackson, Pimp Counsel, Hic Box, Mr. Enois Scroggins & others.
Driver, a French rapper from Sarcelles city, has been in the rap game since quite a long time with a quite a few releases behind his back. This years he’s back with his new EP “Now I’m Hot” (if translated from French) that was released in CD format on his own “Allmade” record label, and it’s the perfect result of the collaborative effort of Driver and Crapulax (the French producer): all the tracks were written, produced and recorded within a week as they both hit the studio and “cooked” all the bangers together.
Apparently it’s one the hottest CD’s out of France this year so far and is very solid work by both the rapper & producer. We strongly recommend to peep it & order a hardcopy @ Addictive Music Online Shop. They are the official distributor of this CD, ship worldwide and their prices/shipping are pretty moderate.
As both of them rapping on the album, Mister C also handled all the production on it. This album literally “features no featurings” at all (they even produced this album by themselves) which is pretty rare in g-funk, especially, nowadays. This is type of g-funk music that you may feel like listening to any time of year and leave you in a careless uplift mood.
Mastered by Hic Box, the sound quality of the whole album is high enough to guarantee ya’ll remain satisfied, especially those who care about it (sound quality).
The album was released in CD format on July 14th, 2017. While the CD’s have been sold predominantly on the streets of France (like back in the days), the hardcopies are available @ Mr.Ridaz Official Site and shipping worldwide.
