IAM are unquestionably the biggest group in French rap history. Nearly 30 years after they first got together, the boys from Marseille continue to make the French language rhyme in time to the beat. At least some of the hits from the cult album L’École du Micro d’Argent, still regarded today as one of the greatest rap albums ever, will be familiar to everyone. Akhenaton, Shurik'n and partners will be setting the Massena stage on fire. You have been warned.
Line-up: Akhenaton, Shurik'n, Kheops, Imhotep & Kephren.
Album: Révolution (Def Jam Recordings)
