Forgotten Treasure: Akhenaton “J’ai Pas De Face” (1997)

Ahh I totally forgot about this one until my good friend and talented producer Dr. MaD was talking about it this morning. For those who don’t know, Akhenaton is a founding member of French rap group IAM which is pretty much THE legendary group out there. Akhenaton aka Sentenza also did a bunch of solo stuff on compilations and LP’s. His voice is just unmistakable; just like when you hear Q-Tip coming in…

For those of you who don’t speak french let me just give you a bit of background behind these two tracks. One was made in the late 90′s and the other in the early 2000′s, both basically the more recent equivalent to a track like EPMD‘s “Crossover”: talking about all the crap surrounding pre-fabricated pop and hip-pop stars. The first track is more about boy bands and the second about reality shows. Both (sadly) still very relevant today.
