People who will argue against it and defend your point usually enjoy feeding from misery, being simply unable to enjoy life or agree that they are the master of their own destiny.
I hope I don't offend any hip-hop fan here, my point is just about showing it as the culture of Paris.
Thanks for referring to me as belonging to the elite by the way.
None of the social groups that constitute the population of Paris has a monopoly on parisian culture. If NTM only represents part of it, so does the jazz music that is loved by the "bobos", the variété of the middle class or the electro/house that yuppies listen to. So both of you are right and wrong at the same time, and this tells more about the image of the city you want to project than about what really represents the city (as if one song could anyways).

Now as for your comment on the culture of the working classes itself, well I'd say that reminds me of how the traditionnal bourgeoisie despised the chanson populaire until WW2. Same thing, different times.

I'm glad I like them too. Otherwise I'd be a bit of a soul-less git!

Great imaginative thread!
