Album Review

Though he had never strayed too far, Le Tour de La Question returns Solaar to his roots in jazz-rap. Similar to his classic Prose Combat, it's a set of funky hip-hop with just the right amount of samples and Solaar's complementary rapping style, which always takes into account the production. It's a relief that he appears to have little concern for what's hitting the charts in America, since so many American rappers (and labels) follow whatever is hot when they're recording. He just keeps on making great hip-hop with a bit of jazz and a bit of old-school flavor. Available in limited quantities, a special two-disc set of Le Tour de La Question includes deluxe packaging and a book.

Customer Reviews

I Really enjoyed this album!

Though I think this album would be better if it weren't live, that's just my opinion. MC Solaar has very original songs, and great beats. I really enjoy the french and i hope iTunes can get more albums from him in the future! I reccomend this album!

Je suis si heureux !

I have been waiting for this day! By chance I left feedback at iTunes and asked when they would get MC Solaar, and (coincidently)... here it is! Seriously, though, this is great music. I wish it was not a live album, but this is still great if you are just being introduced to MC Solaar. Hopefully, iTunes will have some of his other stuff soon. Look for "Cinquieme As:Fifth Ace" and, of course, "Prose Combat".

I Heart MC Solaar

I just wish itunes had the album with that song "La belle at le bad boy" -- by far my favorite mc solaar song

Biography

Born: March 5, 1969 in Dakar, Senegal

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The best and most popular French rapper, MC Solaar found success in America among fans of acid jazz and jazz-rap (if not the larger hip-hop community) after guesting on Guru's acclaimed Jazzmatazz project. His fluid phrasing makes up for his lack of English, and the production on his solo work (by DJ Jimmy Jay and Boom Bass of La Funk Mob) surpasses that of most of his hip-hop contemporaries. Born Claude M'Barali in Senegal, Solaar later moved to Paris and released his first single, "Bouge de La,"...
