There’s a new pimp on the block, and his name is 100s; at the tender age of 19, the rapper – son of a Jewish mother and African father – has just released the best hip hop debut in recent memory, Ice Cold Perm, available now via the Dream Collabo Bandcamp page. Whilst his back-story – sent as a teenager to live with relatives in the Ivory Coast to prevent him falling in with a bad crowd, inspired to rhyme by watching MTV there via satellite – sounds suspiciously like the basic plot-line of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, the youngster is hardly Will Smith, but he is similarly charismatic. Equal parts Iceberg Slim, Superfly, Omar from The Wire and Doggystyle-era Snoop Dogg (note the Doggfather artwork homage), the 100s persona comes fully-formed and absolutely magnetic, and with smooth but hard-edged G-funk beats courtesy of Joe Wax complementing the sleazy, stoned lyrics perfectly, Ice Cold Perm already sounds like a future classic.
