Baloji - Hotel Impala
Genre: Hip Hop
Release: 2007




Spoiler:
Some 5-6 years ago, there was exactly ONE good Belgian hip-hop group (although there are others that are ok, they can't hold a candle to the more known international groups), Starflam (an anagram of malfrats linguistiques). Don't think about a bunch of posers, like there are so many US groups, these guys were the real deal. Unfortunately, as it happens so often to bands that have some success, they started fighting and split up in 2004. I really regretted the split, since these guys were just so awesome, I met a few of them backstage at a concert in Liege, and they were just the people that you'd like to hang out with and chill all day. Regardless, they went their seperate ways, trying to build up solo careers, some successful, others failing miserably.

One of the more successful solo artists is Baloji, a Belgian guy with roots in Congo. He released his first album a couple of months ago, and I can easily say that it is one of his best albums yet. It's more than just music, he tries to tell us his life story, from coming to Belgium when he was still a kid, through his life on the streets of Liege, to his meeting with his birth mother a year ago. The misery that he raps about is REAL, not like the shit that so many groups try to tell (forty year old guys singing about the though life in high school? Please), everytime you listen to his album, you're listening to someone's story, which sets it apart from a lot of artists. Of course, no matter how interesting the story, when the music is shit, you're not going to listen to it. Luckily, Baloji surrounds himself with an allstar entourage, some of the finest artists that we have in Belgium these days, making this the perfect record for a party, or if you just want to chill with a couple of friends.
