Just how far will Soprano go? He was already on the roof of the world with his album L'Everest. And he doesn’t look like coming down anytime soon. The native of Marseilles has stuck to his guns with his latest recording, Phoenix and the incredibly successful eponymous tour. Hit after hit, he brings together young and old and keeps an ever-growing audience loyal to his cause. Now he's up in the stratosphere. Initially spotted in 2002 with Psy4 de la Rime, he has now openly broken with the clichés of rap, flirting in an assumed and totally uncomplicated way with chanson, pop and variety. A universe in his own image: energetic, cosmopolitan and luminous.
