Booba the judicial chronicler
"When I grow up, I would like to be Benalla or a pedophile monk. 10 years for a fight, is it with or without streaming? # Uneépoqueformidable ". On August 21, Booba was swinging this pithy tweet, live from the zonzon. Judicially, the rapper did not pray for his comment. A little penchant for the provoc but also a way to "note the hypocrisy of the system, sentences sometimes ill-suited to crime, while highlighting the media aspect of this trial," says Kathryn Kleppinger, a teacher at George University Washington, a specialist in contemporary French culture, particularly the perception of French rap in the public sphere. Last made in late last week, when the rapper unveiled one of his mother's messages. "Yesterday went to my hairdresser's. She told me that her clients aged 50 to 70 had told her that "to fight with Chanel flasks is the class! "They added that you are very beautiful." Thug life is obviously family.

His tracks and albums refer to specific facts, besides he does not try to separate his life and his art. It purposely presents itself as a set of artistic and media activities ".
Booba n ° 1
Boss of the French rap game, Booba is no less an entrepreneur. Between a message of his "daronne" and the video of a cover of one of his titles, the rapper also takes the opportunity to make the promo for his whiskey D.U.C, bottle in hand.
Whether it is for the autopromo, his legal difficulties or his music, the rapper is in permanent representation and constantly blurs the borders between private life and public life. A sense of staging, serving his business and his music. "Last week he noted that his new BB song is # 1 on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer," says Kathryn Kleppinger. We can say that this is a strategy to give it more legitimacy and cultural power, despite its legal difficulties. It's a way of saying he's always on top, no matter what happens with the judgment this week. " No offense to his detractors.
