In January 2024, Demi Portion also released " Lightweight "his latest album. On it, Demi Portion draws on everything he has learnt over the course of his career. From modern hip-hop sounds to retro scratch sounds, this rhythmic range serves as a backdrop for lyrics that are sometimes combative, sometimes nostalgic, but always impeccably chiselled to illustrate his feelings about the world, our political climate, and his relationship with his loved ones, his audience and his fame. This album is also an opportunity for him to collaborate with Furax Barbarossa, Suffering or even Rim'Kwho has often been seen at the Demi Festival.

For " Aiming for the top "Demi Portion has surrounded himself with Sheemi & Tricks for production and Blanka of Kazablanka Mastering for the arrangements.

I'm really happy to have collaborated with Mandatory, it was a great experience. I was already following what ZeratoR was doing with his team, so it's an honour for me to be part of their story - it's incredible! With 'Viser le Top', I wanted to illustrate the quest for performance and the effort required to reach the top.
