Sniper is a new-ish rap band composed of Aketo, El Tunisiano (rappers), Black Renega (dance-hall toaster) and DJ Boudj. Their sound is very classical while their lyrics are sometimes above the run-of-the-mill French rap fare. They knew how to evolve from the standard "we live in the ghetto, life is tough, yo let's party" to more elaborate reflections on ways to improve their conditions and change the French society. They became known to the general public when the got sued for their "violent, racist and insulting" lyrics by the French Minister of the Interior, who obviously hadn't even listened to a single song by the band, and were declared innocent by the judge.
