Overview

From one of the world's most enthusiastic hip-hop markets comes the compilation Le Flow: The French Hip-Hop Avant-Garde. This 15-track disc is an intercontinental journey in urban sound offering a range of jeep-ready tracks -- from Supreme NTM's dancehall-influenced joint "Ma Benz" to the Saian Supa Crew's stunning "Darkness," which borrows its orchestral arrangement from the Dionne Warwick classic "Anyone Who Had a Heart." The set boasts an exceptional lineup of French talent, as well as several collaborations pairing Gallic artists with American hip-hop heavyweights. MC Solaar pitches in a guest rap on a remix of Missy Elliott's infectious "All N My Grill," DJ Spinna turns in a melodic remix of Les Nubians' "Makeda," and rhyme slinger Assassin squares off against New York freestyle master Supernatural on "Undaground Connexion." Other pairings include Common and Rahzel on Alliance Ethnik's "Jam" and RZA on "Shaolin, 6eme Chaudron" with Arsenik. A true indicator of a thriving, global hip-hop community, The French Hip-Hop Avant-Garde will make even the most ethnocentric rap fans open to this irresistible multilingual fusion. Becca Brown

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stacia Proefrock
The mainstream success of R&B influenced artists Les Nubians turned many Americans on to the new R&B and rap music coming out of France. This collection brings together some of the hottest new musicians and DJs from the French scene. Combining American, African, Middle Eastern, and French influences, the music is truly intriguing, forceful, and graceful.
