On ne présente plus Cool Nutz, un MC qui produit encore aujourd'hui de très bonnes sorties. Et en voilà encore une de qualité. Allergiques des refrains chantés et des sons dits "modernes", passez votre chemin. Je ne sais pas qui est à la prod, juste que cela reste sur le label Jus Family Records. Mais bon, à part pour les tracks signalées, il doit bien y avoir du Bosko là-dessous.

Au niveau des tracks, vraiment peu de déchets. Seules deux ou trois ne m'ont pas plus, genre Totin ou Violate par exemple. Mais c'est bien vite oublié grâce aux nombreuses autres qui passent toutes seules comme la première track musicale de l'album, No Tommorow qui annonce direct la couleur avec son refrain chanté. Si vous aimez pas les premières secondes de cette track, ça ne sert à rien de vous le procurer. La tuerie pour moi reste Stop Fuck With Me, grâce à son instru et surtout son refrain. Cool Nutz Family plaira à de nombreuses personnes ici je pense, grâce à son ambiance funky tranquille. D'autres tracks valent le détour comme mes deux coup de coeur The Long Road, bête de track mélancolique et Oooohhhhh, MON coup de coeur. Les 20 premières secondes RnBisantes bizarres font place alors à une instru calme et kiffante.

En vrai, une sortie très intéressante. Avec des instrus qui ne plairont pas à tous mais ceux qui ne sont pas réfractaires aux sons récents kifferont sans aucun doute cet album.

Merci Rushkoff pour les infos et extraits.
J'ai envie de dire comme d'hab' avec Cool Nutz ces derniers temps, j'suis mi figue, mi raisin... Autant j'adore Cool Nutz Family, autant les deux autres j'adhere pas du tout. J'sais pas ca sonne trop "new", ou peut etre pas assez funky à mon oreille, j'ai un peu de mal. J'vais quand meme me pencher sur cet album, le pelo est toujours capable de nous pondre 2 ou 3 tueries sur ses albums.

Oui je me suis forcé à écouter un max de trucs récents ces deux dernières années, et il est vrai que lorsque je dis que le Cool Nutz est à écouter, c'est bien sûr en se plaçant dans le référentiel "sons des années 2000". Il faut juste chercher autre chose que les sons des nineties, même si c'est ce que l'on préfère. Enfin nan en fait, chacun fait comme il l'entend.

Pas trop de succès pour une des meilleurs sorties de l'année 2009 pour oim. Faut dire qu'avec Oooohhh et Don't Fuck Wit Me, c'était de très bonnes tracks pour s'amuser on va dire. Et elles partisipèrent à mon activité, donc peut-être pas assez objectif. Mais tout de même, le refrain de Oooohhh, c'est :o

Sinon, histoire de pas rester en mode "je remonte le topic histoire de raconter ma life" :

Version mp3 : Cool Nutz - Monster up

Une interview sur www.hiphopdx.com :
Underground Report: Cool Nutz
July 25, 2010 12:00:00 AM CDT | by Andres Vasquez

Image

On his boldly titled Incredible album, Cool Nutz firmly states that he can rock with squares and rock with G’s equally. Not for nothing, he lives up to some of that by having an array of topics ranging from suicidal thoughts to gritty descriptions about depression and the drug game. He also manages to create a diverse portfolio by rhyming over varied beats, never succumbing to monotonous instrumental selections other artists fall victim to far too often.

Squares may enjoy him but he’s not fronting about the street life. In this interview with HipHopDX, Cool Nutz opened up about losing family members and close friends to violence. Anyone who’s gone through a similar painful struggle can relate. This may explain why this vet has been doing it successfully for years as one of Portland’s most highlighted acts. He brings others in and doesn’t alienate.

Cool Nutz also spoke with us about his varied subject matter and beat selection, boasting that he’s proud to not fit into any box. He also shared more about his mother, her struggles and how they helped shape him. He candidly spoke about how darkness creeps into our lives and how important it is for him to find happiness. Something else stood out while speaking with Cool Nutz. He was incredibly open to sharing his knowledge with others. Potential up-and-coming musicians can learn from his lessons about the record industry and he isn’t afraid to share how all of his experiences have allowed him to thrive independently for years. He’s cool with sharing all of this, with squares and G’s alike.


HipHopDX: “Momma” is one of the more touching tracks on the album. Can you explain why it was so important to give that love to mom? What was the most important lesson you learned from her?

Cool Nutz: Well, first and foremost, I just wanted to take a different approach to the album as a whole. The artists that I have with me are two cats that I always work with. We always, kind of, get stuck doing certain kinds of songs so when I was putting this album together, I wanted to do something different, something people wouldn’t expect from them or me. All of us are close to our mothers so I figured a song about my mother would be good. The biggest thing from my momma was, she had me when she was 15. She was out in the streets and I ended up living with my grandparents and then as she got older, she turned her life around, got into the church and changed her whole life and became an example to me of, you know, you could go through a lot of stuff but then also pull it together and get on the right track and set a positive example to me, my brother, my sister with the change she went through and the struggles she went through.

DX: That song stood out. “Darkness” is also a track that struck me. “So many nights, so many cold nights…Soul searching, I was looking for the light. Fighting with my demons, hating myself…” What truly inspired that song?

Cool Nutz: As you get older, man, you start understanding that when you actually have a voice with your music, for me being one of the prominent artists in the Northwest…Sometimes you discount what your voice can do or the impact or influence that you have. When you go back and look at some of the stuff you’ve been doing or some of the music you’ve been doing or even how you were living, you start to become more accountable because you can influence people. There’s people looking at you, whether it be from a musical standpoint or inspirational standpoint. I think sometimes, we as artists don’t take into account…Everything from the gangs, the killing and the drugs…Even if we were living and doing that, there’s different ways to tell your story other than glamorizing it. There’s better ways to teach somebody or to tell somebody, “This is my story and this is what I had to endure.” That line, sometimes going back and thinking about some of the stuff that you might say in the songs or stuff you’ve done in life, you think you’re fighting with your demons, like, “I lived this way and to some people that’s a glamorous lifestyle.” Some people think backwards. You’re always fighting with yourself to keep yourself in the right frame of mind. Music is an extension of me. My music should be a portrait of my life and who I want to be.

DX: Going along with that, you talk about the pursuit of happiness on this album. What has been the key for you in that pursuit?

Cool Nutz: Coming form an urban environment where you have gangs, drugs, guns and…My brother got killed, my best friend got killed, my cousins done been killed…So it’s just like, knowing that there’s nights when we’ve been out going to the club or something and just dumb shit happens, you sometimes should feel lucky that you made it home. For me, being happy is like not worrying about someone wanting to kill me, not worrying about going to jail or not getting a job because you a felon. My pursuit of happiness is just living and being able to live a normal lifestyle and not having to look over your shoulder. There are so many things in Hip Hop that are looked at as being cool. When did that become a normal lifestyle? At 16 and 17, when was it normal for cats to have to worry about leaving their house with a gun or certain things that we portray in our lives that are negative? A normal lifestyle is not growing up and your brother getting killed or your best friend that you grew up with getting killed. It might have been like they died from a car accident driving drunk from a party. That’s more normal than some of the things we look at in music and urban culture. For me, happiness is like, as I get older, just being able to go out the house not worrying about where you going, what you doing on a daily basis. Even through our music, if you get affiliated with certain things, certain people won’t buy your music because of that. That is a part of life that you think about and you say, “Man, some of these things that we’ve been living through or being a part of is not always correct.” You just want to be normal, man. Just an average Joe walking down the street, you see the guy who goes to the grocery store to get eggs, he’s going home to cut his yard. He doesn’t care who drives by and sees him cutting his yard. He can go to whatever place he wants to and have a drink, take his woman wherever and just be happy.

DX: I see. Now, you're quite versatile, where you rock with squares and you can work with the G’s…How has that versatility allowed you to reach various different types of people?

Cool Nutz: [Laughs] Yeah, I think because, like, for me, I’m a little older. I grew up when Hip Hop was real. If you had [albums by] Ice-T, you had Rakim’s record [too]. If you had Eazy-E’s record, you had Poor Righteous Teachers. If you had Public Enemy, you had King Tee. For me, I’ve always just loved Hip Hop. My style of music is more like [Tha] Dogg Pound’s first album [Dogg Food]. It was dope rhyming and dope Hip Hop but it was still street. It represented the west coast but it was still something you had to appreciate because Kurupt was one of the dopest emcees. For me, I never wanted to be limited by the type of music I made but I wanted to be relevant while still being me. I can go rock with the Living Legends, Grouch and Ghostface [Killah] and then I can go rock with E-40 and The Game, Kid Cudi or whoever else and still be relevant and not be looked at as, “This don’t fit.” That’s always kept me in a position where no matter what the occasion was, I could always perform and I could always craft my set or give songs that would fit this situation or compilation or mixtape or whatever. I feel like that versatility always kept me from being boxed in. I could do a Hip Hop show or so called “gangsta rap” show or a backpack show and people will still say, “This dude is dope!”

DX: You’ve seen the highs and lows of this industry. How have the obstacles allowed you to move through this business successfully?

Cool Nutz: Man, just seeing the dirty side of the record business like going into a record deal and seeing all this love that you get from the label. “Yo, you’re the hottest thing! We’re going to blow you up! We’re shooting a video!” And then, seeing that same love turn into just fake love, I guess you could call it. Then, seeing those same people even work to ruin your career, those same people not take into consideration that this is your livelihood. Every time I got out of a record deal, I went and put out my own records and kept pushing to have success through that. There’s a few things. The industry taught me how to step up my business and perfect what I do and see it from a bigger level, and be able to sit down with a vice president at Universal or sit down with a Craig Kallman, who’s the [Chairman and CEO] of Atlantic. I can sit down with them and know that I’m a good enough artist to where these people want to meet with me. They respect what I do. I’m talented enough to have them come offer me a record deal or give me a check. Also, when we signed with Universal, that was my first time going to New York. Going to New York opened my mind to a whole ‘nother side of Hip Hop. Coming from the west coast, we think, “That’s that east coast shit!” We still listen to it but it’s still like, “I’m from the west coast.” But going to New York allowed me to see why Jay-Z and Nas rhyme the way they rhyme. Being in the subway, smelling the piss in the subway and seeing how the people in New York are completely different from people on the west coast. All of these things, through experiences in the record business, basically gave me a better perception of what I needed to do and how I needed to treat the business. Also, it made me understand the different tiers of who’s who and what’s what, when you’re somebody and where you’re not somebody. I can be a big fish in the northwest and then I can go to Miami and Nelly walks in and you’re nothing. You know what I’m saying? It gives you a better idea that you’ve got work to do. There are so many other levels we need to step up to. There’s so much more out there. There’s so much money being made. There’s so much opportunity. But then, at the same time, there’s so many pitfalls and downfalls to this game. I’m not going to lie. At one point during my record career, going through these situations with these labels, basically made me feel like I didn’t even want to do music no more after that shit. It was like, “This is a despicable game.” At least somebody in the streets, most of the time, will just straight up tell you in your face, versus dealing with somebody on a record label that’s lying to you. “We gon’ shoot this video! Y’all gon’ blow up! It’s y’all time to shine!” Then, going to the meeting for your record and them slitting your throat. You know what I’m saying?

DX: That’s knowledge people need to learn from.

Cool Nutz: That’s the thing, man. Even on this Incredible record, like I say, “We’ve been dropped from some deals.” I’ma tell it like it is. I’m not gonna hold that part of it back because like me and my homie say, “You don’t only toast when you’re winning; you toast to your shortcomings, too.” [Laughs]
