Advisory: Due to some recent emails I need to specify that I am neither a record company nor a journalist. I'm just a guy who produces a low-tech podcast to help Anglophones discover French rap. I am not making any money off of it. I am not trying to be exhaustive or "fair & balanced". I'm only giving personal opinions, and trying to share what I like. Thank you.
Thomas, I know you and your English isn't that bad... what's with the accent?
OK, where are the graffitti fonts and black guys in sports clothes? This site doesn't look hip-hop at all!
Why don't you play more MC Solaar? I thought he was the #1 French rapper
Solaar became famous because his lyrics were free of curses and full of poetical structures straight out of French textbooks. Teachers could use his lyrics to explain what an oxymoron or an alliteration was. Furthermore, he enunciates pretty well so he makes a great resource for French teachers abroad too. This show is not a French lesson, otherwise I'd be doing it in French.
Where did all the artists' pages and lyrics go? Weren't you supposed to do them every show?
