Huckleberry Finn, The “N-Word” & Kanye West.

January 4th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

“Scholar Alan Gribben and NewSouth Books plan to release a version of Huckleberry Finn, in a single volume with The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, that does away with the “n” word”, I read with stupefaction in today’s Washington Post. What the f-word? , I thought. Mark Twain’s chef-d’œuvre is a honest look at, amongst other [...]

The Soundtrack Of My Year.

December 25th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Music is my life despite the facts I can’t carry a tune, have little rhythm and make no loving from it. Still, from the moment I open my eyes, to the moment I close them at night, music is a constant. This year, my life was dominated by Haiti, by deadlines and by new and not so new music. Here’s the soundtrack of my 2010 life.

I Am A Citizen of Roc Nation …Despite Living In Montréal.

November 1st, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

On Friday, October 30th the King of New York graced Montreal with his presence, his repertoire and with his place in pop cultural history. After a 10-year absence, Jay-Z was finally back in a City where he is deeply loved, despite the obstacles. I could speak of the man’s excellence or of his accomplishments but [...]

The World’s Future is in Rihanna’s hands. Sort of.

February 16th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

But beyond that and most importantly, I view Rihanna’s eventual coming out as potentially being one of Pop Culture’s most defining moments. Too strong? Not at all. Too many times, celebrities have bypassed the law. Too many times, domestic violence [...]

Hip Hop’s New Commander-in-Chief.

February 10th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

As it appeared on Clovys.tv Il y a d’abord eu la fois où l’émission 60 minutes a demandé au candidat démocrate, ce qui était en rotation sur son i-Pod. Dans sa réponse, au milieu d’une nomenclature de classiques de sa génération comme les Bruce Springsteen et compagnie, le futur Président insère Jay-Z, très casually. Bombe. [...]

Share The Blame

May 15th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Call it the post-Imus effect: airwaves policemen are out and want to make-up for lost times. Suddenly, they have realized the pitiful state of language in music and Hip Hop is their enemy number one. For years now, Hip Hop has been downgraded by foul language despite an increase in the genre’s popularity. Some Hip [...]

The News of its demise is greatly exaggerated

March 22nd, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Hip Hop is not dead. I don’t care what Nas says. And how quickly mainstream media has jumped on the bandwagon to announce its demise. Decrease in album sales, no Hip Hop album on the Billboard’s Top 10. So, what? Hip Hop is not dead. Hip Hop took a step back to jump further. To [...]
