'The Butterfly Effect'

The best rap music video I’ve seen in a while (I don’t care much for rap music anymore). “l’effet papillon” (the butterfly effect) by the French rapper, Youssoupha. I like the way the video combines bling, African history, the connections between Kinshasa and Paris, etc. Youssoupha has music in his genes (if there is such a thing). He is the son of Tabu Ley Rochereau (if you don’t who that is, I am sorry). Youssoupha, whose mother is Senegalese, also has a degree in literature from the Sorbonne.
