Wati B: Les chroniques du Wati Boss
A new release of a rap compilation on the Wati B label, a company that's in recent years been at the
forefront of French rap with acts like Sexion d'Assaut, Dry and Maître Gims.
It's also branched out into clothing with a shop in Paris and a range of clothing and accessories. Music merchandise has come a long way from the days of bands just flogging a tour T shirt at the stall at their gigs.
The album Les chroniques du Wati Boss features unreleased performances by artists on the label
Maître Gims performs the track Hasta la Vista with L'Institut in a video to promote the album, and given the success of the debut album by Gims, released earlier this year, it should attract more listeners to other acts on the label,
Sexion d'Assaut members Maska, JR O Crome and Black Mesrimes are also present, with their solo work getting some of the spotlight.
Sexion d'Assaut play in Paris at the end of September for the Urban Peace 3 hip hop event at the Stade de France.
