MC planted a solar party
For some it was an unexpected reunion , while for others it was an unexpected first date, it was a rare and busy occasion on Friday evening with MC Solar at Salle Wilfried-Pelletier.
The pioneer of French rap, who rolled out an instrumental red carpet by the Montreal String Orchestra, took only a few steps to stand up and offer praise.
The suit and cap, with Claude M’Barali, his real name, entered through the front door Those who sow the wind cultivate the tempo, The title track of his debut album, a slap and text delivered to a French rap scene in the early 1990s. Most of the audience remained upright to answer the MC: “Who cultivates the wind …? “Time!” ⁇
“In the name of father, son and Claude, MC Solar is inviting you to rap parties. ⁇
The veteran is back to host a “rap party” in Montreal after nearly a quarter of a century of monasticism, professional breaks and contract disputes with the Polydor Record Company have now been resolved. The most recent tickets he sold on Metropolis for Francois, more precisely, were stamped on Metropolis on June 22, 1998.
“Justifies the end ways”, describes the Makar-born MC taken from this title Prose struggle (1994), a discreet second album full of popular illustrations, along with hints of alteration, jazz and scholars.
Solar now also takes cult from it Sequels, Obsolete – Everyone is standing -, Mistress of hemoglobin Or New Western. “Sometimes life looks like a stray bullet / person drowns in the modern system / he drank brandy to be clear / now we have brandy, TV, shit and baby”, leaving the poet-rapper two kilometers away for the F1 festivities.
Surprisingly, in public: a lot of young people moving on the changing tables in Quebec when the rapper gave birth to his greatest hits. Many sing along with their elders, no doubt in handing over. This is especially noticeable when the first notes of the hits resonate. Who sows the wind … : Fashion victim – No need to ask people: “This is his code name!», – Armand is dead, Caroline And about what Get out of here, It gets a particularly feverish reaction and blows hundreds of iPhones into the air in video mode.
According to the classics, the seats in the Salle Wilfried-Pelletier on Friday evening wore very little. The most inspired ones also gathered in the aisles on either side of the stage.
“Montreal, how are you? “I’m so glad to be in Montreal”: not so much a talker, a sober and warm performer, the Ace of Clubs first chose to be generous in his music. It provided a nearly two-hour celebration divided into more than 20 songs.
With his first three recently re-released albums in his bag, the Versifier did not like to sit back and rely on nostalgia. Instead, he chose to revisit his concerts with the jazz band New Big Band Project, led by composer Issam Krimi. Enhanced with the Boomboss / Zdar duo and DJ Jimmy Jay – enough to highlight the rich musical experimentation – it promotes Solar’s first albums.
Jazz, Funk, Old School Hip-Hop, French Song … MC, along with his 3 “Cs” – brass, strings, (wonderful and powerful) choreographers – genres that are sometimes spit on, pocketed, and sometimes with passion, tempo by hand Cut. He floated on stage, had fun with his thirty singers and musicians, and laughed happily.
When MC Solar indicated, “We have reached the final stage,” the audience abruptly chanted slogans. Love accusations, of course. There are actually six songs left, four of which are provided encore, including recent songs sonotone (Geopiotics2017) and final Time is upTaken from Prose struggle. “Pause, I need to rest, time is up! ⁇
After Friday’s concert, this time around, there will be many who hope the warrior’s rest away from Montreal will not last a quarter of a century.
