Eddy de Pretto

  • France
  • Urban spleen

A big mouth or a frail blond, we still don’t really know. But one thing is certain: Eddy de Pretto has secured himself a prime place on the high altar of great artists of tomorrow. Confidently assuming a rap that flirts openly with French chanson, his hybrid style is unanimously acclaimed in both camps. Torn between the scintillating light of the Parisian boulevards and the concrete landscapes of suburban estates, the artist writes sensitive, committed and autobiographical lyrics, in which he denounces injunctions to virility and the excesses of directionless youth. A chiseled prose that makes him a popular poet of the 21st century.
