Indeed, he himself was a rapper in the Norman group La Cellule. Jean-Pascal Zadi stars in the film “Yo Mama”. Mika Cotellon See the 19 photos Yo Mama, directed by Leïla Sy and Amadou Mariko, is expected in theaters on July 5th. This film traces the story of three mothers who start rapping and we can notably find Jean-Pascal Zadi there. That turns out well. The latter, in addition to having documented this musical current with his camera, fully took part in it since he himself was a rapper. Go back a few years.
What a fine career that Jean-Pascal Zadi has had. The French actor and filmmaker hatched late and became in the space of a few months an essential face of the revival of French cinema. Whether with his brilliant film Simply Black– which he co-directed and which won him the César for best male hope in 2021, his own series called En Place released this year on Netflix and which has already been renewed for a second season or even his appearances in Cut! by Michel Hazanavicius or Smoking makes you cough by Quentin Dupieux, the 42-year-old actor has a string of successes and continues to seduce the public with the finesse of his artistic proposals and his caustic humour.
And this is only the beginning since we will be able to find him from July 5 next on the poster for the film Yo Mama by Leïla Sy and Amadou Mariko. In this feature film, we can follow the story of three mothers who embark on rap after discovering that their respective sons have tried this music. And there is no doubt that the presence of Jean-Pascal Zadi was useful, since his history is intimately linked to that of this musical trend, which has become the most popular genre in France.
Rap pegged to the body
Indeed, before being an actor, he himself was a rapper. He then operated within the Norman group La Cellule, with his colleagues Drama and Alain. They thus multiplied the appearances on several compilations and even published a first album “Nos âmes et nos actions” in 1999, as well as a second disc called “Jeune Thug” in 2008. A collective, to say the least underground, which had its small successes like Jeune Thug or Des Halls aux Bacs, which still have a few thousand views on YouTube. And just for you, we found the clips of these two titles, which are also available on the Spotify streaming platform.
Proof that, before regularly parodying it as was the case during the Les Flammes ceremony, Jean -Pascal Zadi took rap very seriously. And this is what led him to the cinema since he uses this framework to shoot with big names of the 2000s like Sefyu, Seth Gueko and especially Alpha 5.20, for whom he will make several clips, documentaries and fiction. The sequel is magnificent, and today everyone knows it.
