For the life of me I cannot figure out why, but the fact remains that French rap just doesn't do it for me.
No obvious reasons spring to mind; they are not all of them Maître Gims.
Nekfeu, for instance, feels genuine and fairly clever. Still, it simply feels weird. Which is a pity, seeing how productive France seems to be in rap music : It would be so convenient to like it!
On the plus-side to my not appreciating even Nekfeu : What a relief to discover I don't systematically take to all white rappers!...
