Reuters reports French rap artists are taking over where authorities have failed with songs confronting issues like racism, drugs and violence that bring a message of hope to teenagers at risk. One of them, Kery James, commented, “Most French rappers are completely unaware of the social situation we are in and behave selfishly. All they think about is selling records or fulfilling their passion for music by pretending their songs are not going to change people’s lives, whereas in life everything is connected. It’s up to everyone to contribute something positive.”
