L' Arlez Concept

If you like your Hip Hop hard, musical and with an international flavour then check out French duo L' Arlez Concept. OK, so I don't really understand everything they're saying but I've always loved French Hip Hop. Rap in foreign languages can be enjoyed in a totally different way - entirely based on sonics - a testament to Hip Hop's universality.

'C'est Tellement Complexe', which roughly translates to 'It's So Complex', is led by a nice piano riff but gets a little mexican with the addition of a trumpet solo. 'Criminels de L'humanite' ('Criminals of Humanity'?) is reggae based and I can only assume contains some pretty conscious, politcal lyrics (they are French, that's what they're known for).
