Ok, if you know french, it must sound pretty decent.. but if you're an ignant anglophone like me, it sounds too funny to be bad ass..

Or, even recommendations on some good french hip-hop that doesn't make me giggle.

Actually... French Hip Hop sounds really amazing when it's a great MC.

It's all about articulation. And saying the words clearly.

i've never really gotten into french hip-hop, although i've heard it a few times and it sounds really cool. i've heard some good things are "air" but i'm not entirely sure if they are hip-hop (i think so, though).

French hip hop
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_hip_hop

Most French hip hop artists come from poor suburbs of Paris, Strasbourg, Toulouse or Marseille. Unlike the blacks living in urban ghettos in the United States, where hip hop began, France has had a much wider social safety net, meaning that poverty was rarely as extreme in France's North and West African immigrant communities (where most of the artists come from) as in African American ghettos.

Some of France's most important hip hop crews:


IAM (Marseille) featuring members with (North) African, French and Hispano-Italian roots. Inspired by East Coast rap.
Suprême NTM(Paris) featuring members with Caribbean and French roots. Inspired by East Coast (hardcore) rap.
NAP (Strasbourg) featuring with African and Caribbean roots.
La Cliqua (Paris) featuring Rocca, bilingual rapper with Columbian roots.
KDD (Toulouse) hardcore
Manau (Bretagne) rather commercial group mixing hip hop with Celtic music.
MC Solaar considered as commercial by some. It sucedeed writing rap songs with a strong "Chanson Francaise" influence his lyric style has been compared to Serge Gainsbourg.

Saïan Supa Crew () ..
The majority of French rappers are really from Africa. Even though DJ Dee Nasty became the pioneer of Hip-Hop in France during the early 1980s, immigrants from Africa dominated the music scene as well. Due to the former French rule and the colonial, Africans immigrants moved to France for education or better life. M.C. Solaar, from Senegal moved to France around the late 1980s and released his first CD in 1991. More African emcees include:


Stomy Bugsy (Cape Verde)
Red One (Morocco)
Le Specialist (Madagascar)
Bissao na Bissao (Democratic Republic of the Congo/Republic of Congo)
INTIK (Algeria)
Bidew n Bess (Senegal)
Taj Kul B (Morocco)
M.A.M. (Cote d'Ivoire)
Kaysha (Democratic Republic of the Congo)
Tana-Cergy (Madagascar)
Hip-Hop groups from Africa also tour in France and all over Europe.

A LONG time ago there was a house song out called "In the Name of Love." In one version the rapper handed it off to his friend "Sven" who then busted down a pretty dope french rap. I didn't understand it but it sounded cool.

You somehow think I'm making fun of the french languange, but cool your jets, I'm just making fun of my lack of comprehension of it.

So relaxez.
