I agree. I really don't enjoy any of those artists I posted, I just know their music because I was into finding foreign stuff for a while. The lack of understanding lyrics just killed it for me. I wouldn't mind it as background music but I don't really use rap for that.

I'm not avidly seeking out foreign hip hop, but I like to appreciate it for what it is every now and then. I think it's interesting to hear how rappers who speak other languages use their dialect to make music that's so focused on rhyme and rhythm. French artists especially seem to create something unique that you don't typically hear with English hip hop. Obviously it would be ideal to understand what their saying - but that's something I'm willing to forgo in order to hear something new.

Also, I don't sit and compulsively try to digest/interpret 100% of all the music I listen to. There's a lot of stuff that I just throw on to have something going in the background. If it's good enough to grab my attention and hold it - then great! It's the artists that I consistently return to that get my undivided attention, especially with hip hop. I'd rather listen to a foreign rapper do his thing and not understand a word than listen to a Drake single, any day.

maybe this is more your speed



btw i wasn't saying don't listen to foreign rap artists... if it works for you then cool. it doesn't work for me.

not that i wont find a song catchy or whatever in another language. but i can never return to it looking for the same thing i look for from rap i actually understand.
