Playlist: Rap Game

A lengthy rap playlist this week, and one that features French artists alongside their perhaps more familiar US and international colleagues.

Rap is massive in France, and a playlist like this shows how French artists are every bit at the forefront of the genre as anywhere.

While the language barrier is something that would prevent French artists making their mark internationally, the success of Stromae shows that it's not impossible for an act to gain recognition in an anglophone market.

In the meantime, some of France's finest exponents of the genre side by side with the big international names, sounding like they deserve to be there.
