Sinik is the latest French rap sensation coming out of Les Ulis, a crappy suburb mainly known for its mall. He became famous with his mean battle lyrics, in the hit single "L'Assassin". His first album, La main sur le coeur, is made of a dark of songs about his childhood, growing up in the hood and spending time in jail. He's good friends with Diam's and they frequently appear on each other's tracks.
