In a French hip-hop landscape already rich in atypical personalities, this Marseille artist is truly one of a kind. Holding a history degree and known as a voluble member of the Entourage collective, this author of Grand Cru, one of the best rap albums released in 2017, has the knack both for rattling his adversaries during Rap Contenders battles, and for precise, intricate lyrics with staying power. Ignoring gangsta posturing and self-absorption, this charming artist unveils his preoccupations with a dry flow. And it snaps! Last summer “Beur-Bigo” broadened his fan base even further by adapting into French the rap lyrics from the soundtrack of the film Patti Cake$. The result: Grand Cru and its author immediately acclaimed as ‘classic’.
