Dandy Teru who worked as artistic director on this project introduced me to Tchad a couple of months ago so I had the chance to follow the various steps leading to this album release. Active since 1994, Tchad already released 2 albums (Emcique Furilla – 2005 & Musique de France – 2006), collaborated with various artists and collectives such as Grems, Sept, Keny Arkana, Sako (Chien de Paille), Insight, La Fronce, Keny Arkana ,… and was featured on the soundtrack of “Mesrine”.
Musically speaking French rap is where i’m coming from and, although I mostly avoided the genre during the past years, I’m glad Tchad, Teru, Pumpkin, aCatCalledFritz and a few others are bringing me back to it!
