All about French Rap

Song of the week #8

Playlist | Weekly

In these trouble times, why not stay home, keep calm and listen to the 5 best French rap songs that dropped last week?

• Un Cadeau – Caballero & JeanJass Feat. Slimka & Roméo Elvis

The belgian duo, Cabellero & JeanJass came back with a funny little song called “Un Cadeau” [a present]. On this track they are joined by another Belgian rapper, Roméo Elvis, and Slimka, a french-speaking rapper from Switzerland. This was released around the same time of the third season of Cabellero and JeanJass’s show “High et Fines Herbes” [a pun on ail et fines herbes which means “garlic and herbs”] in which they invite famous rapper to smoke pot and cook.

• Cavaliero – Booba

All the signs seems to indicate that Booba, the father of French rap, might be back with another album soon… He released a new song called Caveliero and it’s awesome!

• Take a Mic – À l’envers Feat. Chanceko

Take a Mic is a very talented French rapper who always work hard and delivers great tracks. This new single is no exception. He tried something new by adding a very singy chorus sung by Chanceko. And it works well.

• Slimka – Kanté

Swiss rapper Slimka has two entries in the playlist this week! This solo track of his is an ode to the soccer player N’Golo Kanté.

• Youv Dee – Hôtel 5

Youv Dee became really famous last year in France. So much that he was featured on Trippie Redd’s album “A Love Letter To You 4”. He is back with a very good single. The instrumental on this track is amazing.

I hope you like this week’s tracks. Stay safe, and see you next time.
