Friday Night Fuck Sarko!
Let's keep it real! Here's a few moments from a live concert in the middle of Toulouse by the most popular rap artist in France today, a 26 year old Buerre (Algerian/Urban French) girl named Diam's. If you can't speak French, well, pick up on the energy! This is an extract from a piece called La Bouille and the refrain is Fuck Sarko! Sarkozy, even if he managed to get elected, could never govern France. He's the problem and these kids are the future!
To put Diam's in perspective, she is a tough young feminist, very political, very much anti violence and fights against the repressive male culture of the Banlieus. Extremely intelligent, one of the new generation of political literary rappers. She is being haeled as a great French poet!
