French Hip Hop- IAM

French people are good at most things. Baking, electro house, love making, being arrogant etc.

But few people know there is a pretty fucking good hip hop scene there. Now I'm no expert on French Hip Hop, but the crew I have heard most about are called IAM, and I'm not talking about the Institute of Asset Management, rather the crew from Marseilles 'Invasion Arrivée de Mars'(Invasion from Mars).

They released seven albums, got signed to Virgin in 1990, and their album L'école du micro d'argent also got them some international reps. They performed at Reading festival in England which increased not only their own popularity but that of French Hip Hop.

IAM- Petit Frere Highly recommended
