Rapper Marie-Gold, who already has a few singles and an EP to her credit, now reveals her first solo album, Règle d’Or. What’s striking from the very first listen is the precision and clarity of the rapper’s delivery, allowing the best grasp of her lyrics, so well worked out and so pleasant to dissect that they should be savoured. There’s also an interesting attention to detail in the musical score, with, among other things, the insertion of sound effects or words, which adds an interesting dimension to the sound texture. The artist displays a catchy flow, accentuated by the rather low timbre of her voice. She doesn’t hesitate to use her extended vocal range to give her songs different moods, including one or two fairly pop tracks. With the confidence that comes from this album, Marie-Gold literally breaks down the barrier of masculinity normally associated with keb rap and carves out a significant place for herself in the Montreal rap community.
