Sanity reigns supreme in France after the case against Monsieur R was thrown out of court by the judges. The much maligned rapper was taken to court by an MP for producing music which, it is claimed, incited the riots in France last year. However, clearly this ridiculous claim had no backing with proof and so the judges dismissed the case.
Monsieur R, who refers to France as a slut and bitch, and who draws parallels between France’s government and the Third Reich, infuriated MPs who even tried to go as far as censoring all hip hop. Thankfully for all sane-minded people, this didn’t happen and hip hop in France remains as cutting edge and thought provoking as ever.
