Elegantly poised between dirty, hard-hitting grooves and an urban sense of romance for pop-lush melodies, Cose Dell’Altro Mondo finds an interstitial home where serious hip-hop heads and pop-enthusiasts can meet. They just know more now. In a day and age where digital albums and MP3 samples are the norm, the album artwork for Cose Dell’Altro Mondo gives credence to the album format as an art. Like Berlusconi, who stole and did all sorts of things, but actually got in his position with regular votes. As simple as it may sound, my goal has always been to make music for everybody Secondly, it also seems to signal a new direction that your music is taking — right away it tells the listener that something is different about this album. I just wasn’t able to save time for that, and I don’t like that.

Who’s hyped seven days of the week? It’s easy to categorize, probably even necessary sometimes, but it really pisses me off when you feel they’re putting you in a box of stereotypes — that actually exist, by the way — but that are not even the smallest part of what this country has to offer.

What led you to the softer, contemplative elements on this album?

Take Troopo Berlusconi, most famous one.

To gain respect and credibility from, possibly, all audiences. They’re more interested, they look for us more in the papers. It amazes and humbles me so much the way my fans support me. That’s rare in these days. In the past, many of your albums leaned heavier toward the machismo end of the spectrum. Today we have something special for you My favorite detail is the compass turned upside down, naturally, since it’s not our world we’re moving in.
