Les Poétes

Dazed Presents: Les Poétes. A short documentary unraveling the rich history of Parisian hip-hop. While it’s the genre that has been widely associated with America for the last 30 years, it’s a scene that has flourished in France. The resounding opinion among them is that text is central to the identity of French rap – the lyricism and poetry that is specific to the French language. Beyond questions of identity, the film also follows the matured class of French rappers as they try to find their place in a new world where the genre has been subsumed by online culture and the arrival of the “internet rapper.”
