Rap's not just America, Method Man, Puff Daddy, Foxy Brown, big cars and big gold; rap is huge in France too, and has a unique national identity. Westwood investigates a growing scene born out of France's social situation and finds rappers with roots in Africa, Algeria, and the West Indies. In a country where Le Penn can command 15 per cent of the vote, young French rappers talk about their experiences of the street.
