A fundamental album from IAM’s golden mic controller Shurik’n. Arguably one of the best French rap albums ever, it contains classic tunes such as “Lettre“, “Où Je vis“, “Les Miens“, “Comme un Samourai” and so on. Fresh out of the astonishing success of “L’Ecole du Micro D’Argent” with the IAM squad, Shurik’n goes solo on a poignant journey for both beats and rhymes. Helped of course by his companions, the emcee seeks help from Akhenaton, Freeman, 3eme Oeil, Imhotep and Kheops. Vivid tales from Marseille’s inner cities over fat booming beats. Record is graded as a very good plus, original pressing, DJ copy, light marks, some static, no skips. Great deal.
