IAM – Live from Egypt (French rap)

Most of you who know me well know that I love two things more than most things: music and speaking french. I became proficient at the latter through the music I found when researching a trip to France in 2005 and 2006. My love for hip-hop music brought me a popular group called IAM, a rap crew from Marseilles, France. They reminded me of Wu-Tang Clan from the US (whom they have worked with) bceause they all have a different style, identity, and their subject matter is usually about something meaningful.

I guess I missed the boat on this not being from France, but they celebrated their 20 year anniversary of a group in Egypt in 2008 in front of some pyramids, with a complete live band and plenty guests. Some of the most beautiful hip hop I’ve seen performed. Check out everything I could find on YouTube below…
