Music: Mach-Hommy – Wap Konn Jòj!

Enigmatic rapper Mach-Hommy comes through with a new 19-minute album titled Wap Konn Jòj! Knowing how intricate and wild Mach is with his wordplay and lyricism, I was expecting this album to be a difficult one to digest, and I got exactly that. The production feels rich, with a lot of texture and depth. Produced by the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, The Alchemist, Navy Blue and others according to a press release, this album is gorgeous, with soulful and stunning production throughout.

Lyrically, I don’t even think I’m going to try breaking this record down. “Chimney Brush” features Quelle Chris in a stunningly produced track where both rappers tell introspective stories, meandering between the beat effortlessly. “Mozambique Drill” features Tha God Fahim with a tremendous soul sample and tells tales of their experiences, with intricate wordplay. The title track is a smooth track which sees Mach-Hommy singing, letting his heart out on record. His Haitian influence is sprinkled throughout the album, mainly through his occasional creole singing. “Eedeot Bwoy” features Tha God Fahim and Your Old Droog. The production is eerie and sees all rappers talking on some braggadocio, mafioso type shit. “Mittrom” features Earl Sweatshirt on a track that to be honest sounds a bit out of place, but nevertheless exemplifies their talents brilliantly. “Simbi” is a brilliant closer to the album, with another blissful beat and another introspective from the incredible rapper.

Honestly, from the first listen this album blew my mind. The intricate, rich production and the incredible lyricism from Mach-Hommy makes it such a fascinating release, in what I believe is one of the best hip-hop albums to come out in a while.
