It is, but it's a subgenre, much like gangsta rap is a subgenre of hip hop.

I know absolutely nothing about French hip-hop and this isn't a hip-hop group, but have you heard this track? Makes me agree with your statement about the flow.

wow, thank god someone on here isn't stuck in america. There's great rap music from all around the world. (is this in the right section btw? there is a rap section).

Anyway, here's a great display of how universal rap really is. (the british emcee - stig of the dump aka stevie ****head totally tears this **** apart).




"yo this is some pure freestyle invention,
representing london, berlin and paris like french connection,

"i'm so funky they can barely understand me in my own country"




"i'm known to sever jaws, take a bite out the big apple and dispose of the core"


the essence of hip hop lives on through the true emcees and fans.

- Peace, love and unity.
Awesome signing out.

I listen to Soprano and L'Algerino, but not really sure what they're saying when I can only understand a couple words. Not really sure what to recommend, but I listen to those two.

There is alot of good Grime from UK but if that's too "weird" for regular hip hop maybe try Sway from UK, Hannibal & Soppa from Finland or perhaps old Tommy Tee from Norway

Meh, didn't really get into the grime scene at all. Sway's first album and mixtape was okay but everything after that was terribly weak. If I was trying to get people into UK Hip Hop I would stay well clear of the entire grime scene to be honest. I'd go more in the direction of the battle scene or people like Rhyme Asylum.

Control Machete from Mexico are pretty great. I'm sure if they're still around or not but I dig their late 90s stuff. For example:




Another spanish language hip-group I'm a fan of is the Cuban husband and wife duo Obsesión. I can't find a video to link for them but they're pretty mellow sounding, sort of a Cuban version of Digable Planets.
