Fabio B feat: J-AX & DJ Gruff. Il Mio Nemico

by GroS 6 November 2014

Fabio B just pulled a masterpiece, put together two historical enemies, Sandro Vs. Sandro, aka J-ax against DJ Gruff.

After singing with Neffa, J-ax pushes himself to the limit with Gruff, singing a song that truly rocks, compared with the one done with Neffa. The base by Fabio B kicks, strong and beautiful , and the two legendary rappers rime over it with a bag of style, creating a very powerful song.

It seems that J-ax is trying somehow to get the respect that the “old school” has never given him, and I think that he’s succeeding in it . After a twenty years career with a lot a successes (including commercial) seems to me that J-ax, after quitting some years ago Articolo 31, is finding himself, and with all these featurings he’s doing nothing but confirming my theory . Well done.

DJ Gruff, Sandro O.B.

by GroS 6 November 2014

Last night dj Gruff came visit us and, as he usually does because he is a nice guy, didn’t show up with empty hands. This time no overpriced bottle of sake, but his latest work: Sandro O.B.

15 tracks with a lot of featurings, along with Gruff there are in fact Antonio Tarantino, Clementino, CenZou, Sweden, Marco Lombardo, Esa, 2p, pije Gionson, Walter Buonanno aka Bonnot (Assalti Frontali), Biosci, Dre Love, Daniel Pulimeno , Sawer, Fear, Niko Md, Ekspo, Monom3 and Drug.

The lp is a journey through the places that have marked Gruff’s life, while lyrics are a genial mix between nonsense and pure poetry, and awesome scratches always in the right spot.

What I like about Gruff is that he really is genuine, he does his thing without bothering to wink at the market, he’s not the type of guy that sits there to study what kind of music and sounds one should use, but he’s rather the type that uses music to vent the necessity to fully express himself, he’s always been like that, and I think he always will be.

A real music Taliban, with thousands of contamination from all the places he has lived in but always hardcore, true to himself.
