Last week saw French rap pioneer MC Solaar appear live on French TV evening chat show C à vous.
Solaar recently released a new album, Géopoétique, ten years after he last released an album, 2007's Chapitre 7. If there were any concerns he'd lost his touch over the past ten years they were quickly put aside.
Géopoétique gave him his first number one album in France since 1997 and has been one of the key releases of this year.
Solaar's always been head and shoulders ahead of the others an it's a remarkable appearance on C à vous, showing rap's widespread appeal in France isn't limited simply to fans of the genre.
