"Fight the Power" was good, as you say. But much dross separates the gold in the rap game. Too much, I'm afraid, to give me any patience for it. (However, I must admit to being a person who feeds continuing mantras to his kids like "Duran Duran was underappreciated". And I watch "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" for the soundtrack.)
You get French rap?! Public Radio here did a bit on French rap about 2 years ago and I admit I had to turn it off before the segment was over. You poor devils!
