  • Aerial poetic rap

This young artist is one of the most promising rappers of a French scene that, since the emergence of its established stars Oxmo Puccino and Abd Al Malik, has been waiting for a new batch of MC's, untainted by clichés and caricatures. Just like the excellent Eddy de Pretto, Lonepsi has thrown off the shackles of hip-hop. Guided by language and layers of aerial sound, he infuses his flow with poetry, giving him a particular style, which tends clearly towards the modern text song. Always innovative, he offers both the originality of slow pace and the luxury of a brilliant musicality that refuses categorisation and ensures that French-speaking rap has a bright future.
