Mixtapes

Pour connaître l’histoire du rap, il faut impérativement se pencher sur un autre format que le disque : la mixtape. Ce qui n’était à l’origine qu’une compilation de morceaux enregistrés sur cassette, vendue en dehors des circuits officiels, est devenue au fil du temps un véritable album, distribué sur Internet, parfois supérieur aux disques commerciaux de ses auteurs et resté toujours au coeur de ce genre vivace et prolifique qu’est le rap. Après avoir retracé le parcours étonnant de ces mixtapes l’auteur propose une sélection d’une centaine de ces pépites méconnues, sorties autant par des artistes établis (50 Cent, les Diplomats, Kanye West, Lil Wayne ou Drake), que par de nouveaux rappeurs prenant possession du terrain (Future, Young Thug, Action Bronson, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt).
