A Playlist of French & African Infused Hip-Pop

“Black-Blanc-Beur” means “Black-White-Arab.” The saying has been around in France since the late 1990s when a highly multicultural French soccer team won their first World Cup. They were a team that was reflective of new French society. The French rap game is a perfect example to show the number of migrants that have come to France from Africa and the effect that the two countries have had on each other. Not every Afro-French rapper has lyrics about Africa or references to living in France as an African, but most will have some African influence in their beats and tracks.
