In total, Paris arrives as well as the first city of the rap in the world, with more than 2.6 million albums sold in 2019, doing so better than the city of Atlanta with Young Thug, Future, and Gunna in its ranks. Even better, if the calculations of the streaming French were equivalent to those of the United States, the first week of the release of “Two brothers” of NLP would be better than all the artists of the Atlanta meeting.
Cocorico so ! A national pride that the radio host Emeric Berco alias Mrik on Skyrock, has proudly retweeted on Twitter, rejoicing that “Paris is 1 on the rap”.
A victory thanks to NLP, Nekfeu and Ninho
And if Paris (and its suburbs) has managed to climb to the first place, it is above all thanks to the great names of French rap, such as NLP, Nekfeu and Ninho. In fact, thanks to the albums “Two brothers” (NLP), “The stars wandering” (Nekfeu), and “Destiny” (Ninho), the trio of rappers frenchy has managed to accumulate more than 1 million sales.
The site DJBooth has even concluded that France would be THE country to follow in terms of the rap : “For decades, France has been the biggest market of hip-hop outside the United States, but an unprecedented rise in the rap national over the past five years has firmly anchored the French rap as the genre of music most popular in the country. The stage of a fertile Paris having already surpassed its american counterparts in terms of sales, the city of light appears to be intended to be at the forefront of the globalization of rap to non-English-speaking for the 2020s”.
