French Hip-Hop: Weird

Only the French would have a hip-hop track that’s about how cliche and irony are deadening to the soul. Well, I think that’s what it’s about. There’s also one featuring contrasts between the pastoral ideals of the French past and today’s urban wastelands, but it might be about vegetarianism, or just about how sausage is kind of icky. It definitely features rappers with wearing masks made out of pig’s faces holding up a butcher shop using antique hunting rifles.

  1. You’re right about the first one being about clichés, the second is a “reprezent” track about Aveyron, saying how cool it is and how much their local delicacies rock.
