Roll and Coasters: Reste

R&Cs: Reste

GIMS was widely known as a great rapper and made his bones within the super talented Sexion d’Assaut rap group. Nowadays, GIMS has been on a sustained assault at pop notoriety and having undoubtedly conquered the French (current and former) territories, his sights are firmly trained on the rest of the World. To that end, he’s recruited collaborated with fellow artist that boast a worldwide appeal. While “Corazón” wasn’t far off the familiar hip-hop field, on “Reste”, he’s singing along with pop icon Sting. My feelings about his current direction asides, I have to admit that GIMS has more than the requisite skill set to pull it off. (And he does!) It’s our starting point for a playlist that ends with Bay Area’s stalwart emcee Kool John. Your ears will be grateful for this hour-long trip!

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
