Me too! I don't have most of the artists mentioned so far. I do have, and
like very much, MC Solaar (both on Jazzmatazz I and on his own). What is
ironic to me is that I can't understand a word of it (since I don't speak
French), but I like it for its rhythm. It seems to me that rapping in
another language forces the use of different rhythms, and of course
linguistics, in the rap (compared to English). Anyone else agree?
