Title: Supposedly Focus... produced an album recently?
Post by: Unforgivable by Sean John on May 03, 2010, 10:16:50 PM
Someone mentioned it on another thread. They said Focus... produced a full album for I don't remember who, and that it flew under the radar but was sick.

Can anyone tell me what the album was?

Also, if there are any other full albums he has done, let me know.

Frech rapper Kamini. There is a thread in Outbound about it. The first track 'Les Raps' has an outrageously sick 2010 style g-funk beat, think i posted a link to that one in there 8)

Seriously, if you're a fan of west coast music and don't hear the beat to this track you're misisng out. 'Tis banging, the rest of the album is real nice too, a lot of dope g-funk style vibes (wish Focus would do this sound more) but I don't really understand French to appreciate it.

His "Avant Garde" Project came out today,  It's more Electronic/Pop than Hiphop though.

so we've got different opinions.. i'm from paris and this guy has only one hit. it started on the net, he created the buzz ,as everybody says, with a cheap video of him rapping in the countryside with cows because that guy is not from the hood. It all started with this stupid video. But people don't take this guy seriously, he's a clown. Regarding his skills, i don't listen to french rap but there are worst rappers in france. But yeah it's definitely a beat wasted. The only people who like him is because this guy is pathetic that's why they have sympathy. And also because he represents a good unoffensive black guy. real talk.

Kamini is an intelligent French dude who made a rap video in 2006, humorously recounting the daily life in a rural French town and the difficulty of being a member of the only black family in his village.
The video was quickly put on air by French media, got millions of hits on YouTube, and became a huge hit. He was also invited to appear on numerous prestigious French television programs. Eventually, he got a record deal too. 

It's all humorous rap folks, though he speaks about very serious social, economic and political issues

when i see him on tv he makes me feel so uncomfortable because he tries to be funny but nobody he's laughing. It's alright that he came from the countryside don't get me wrong. But the concept of humoristic rap is quickly boring because he's not funny. And when he wants to talk serious he's so cliche. He's just a trash artist that exists because of the net and the media over exposing what he has done with this video. What i can tell you is that nobody plays his music in the car because people would seriously laugh at you if you were doing that. but i feel what you say with "intelligent" because french rappers are really dumb and are ridiculous when they go on tv. they don't even know how to talk french, like if they never went to school.
