A reader sent me a link to this video: A rap song on Pakistan, in French.

I should confess that I do not understand French and I am not really big on rap – except the kind from Yaqub Atif Bulbula.

But the song is catchy and the home-made video endearing in its own way. Just from the key words I can understand, it seems like a group of young second-generation French-Pakistanis expressing their ‘Pakistaniat.’ And that is a feeling one sees often in second generation diaspora. So, I thought I would share this as a weekend post; hopefully there is nothing in the lyrics that I would regret, and if there is please let me know.

    Very catchy tune indeed. For those objecting to lyrics, I think they don’t understand the basics of rap music. It is a free style music and offers great opportunity to express whatever one wants to. I guess they should give American rap songs a listen and focus on the language used. That would truly be a shocking experience for them.
