Dizzee Rascal (spelling?) is someone I've wanted to get into for a couple of years now.

Default French Hip Hop

Hi guys!
I've red this post and I cannot go further without sharing my favorite french hip hop songs ever! (I'm french)

These songs are quite old but probably the best of french rap (hip hop) history! Enjoy (you'll find them on youtube using the video IDs below).

mQ_hY7EqW9U
artist: NTM
song: ma benz
This song is about doing sexual parties inside a Mecerdes-Benz...

3kFbMx9d6uU
artist: NTM
song: laisse pas trainer ton fils
The main message is to take care of your son (or children) to avoid them falling in crime or felonies.

JNHNQOZ2LVg
artist: I AM
song: petit frere
tells how it's easy for a young boy watching his brothers doing bad things to become like them.

EvanKdzX1VA
artist: I AM
song: L'empire du coté obscur
Star Wars parody

vDzDjohk1Ms
artist: SNIPER
song: Trait pour trait
Singers explain that they're not bling-bling even if they've met success.

rYkk8zVR0bc
artist: SNIPER
song: graver dans la roche
*** Sorry, I haven't found the official video ***
This song is about how their names will be "carved in stone" ... later.

I picked up this comp The Rough Guide to African Rap a while ago that's pretty good. Here's one of the songs from it (I can't remember what country this group is from):

I mean if you were to turn on the radio and leave it on all day, would you eventually hear him?
I went to see Le Sac and Scroobius last year and they were quite excellent on the night, tore the place down.

However, i was disappointed with the album, there are 4 or 5 great songs but unfortunately there is just as much filler.

I like Task Force from the UK. British accents make everything more fun.

Dizzee is grime, though his new stuff could be considered hip-hop.

Shad is a really good Canadian Rapper:

Jehst is another very good British hip hop artist. Return of the Drifter is pretty sweet.

I was a big fan of most of the album, the only filler I found was Rapper's Battle, Fix, Back from Hell, and Development. The last song "Waiting for the Beat To Kick In" was arguably the best on the album. I remember I was walking to work on a Saturday morning and I had that playing on my mp3 player and each of the pieces of advise the people in the song give him were pieces of advise that I took to heart. Especially the one about being in control of your own emotions the "How hard is it to say you're in a good mood then just be in a good mood?" I never really thought of it that way and it made me realize how selfish I was being and how much of life I was taking for granted. That alone put Scroob on my "heroes" list.

I thought Grime was a form of British Hip Hop or something.
