Kamini: Singing what he knows best

Kamini is a French rapper who came into popularity about a year ago with a rap video he posted on YouTube paying homage to his hometown of Marly-Gomont, in Picardy. The song pokes fun at the rural lifestyle of the town. They say one writes best when writing what he or she knows. What does one know better than his hometown? Kamini sings from the perspective of someone who has hometown pride but isn't afraid to poke some fun either. Look out for some cameos from local cows and townsfolk. The video for "Marly-Gomont," as the song is aptly titled, became so popular that Kamini got a record deal and has started a successful music career. I only recently came to know about Kamini, and I thought I'd share the story with those of you who have yet to discover him. Here is, for your viewing pleasure, the video that started it all.

  1. This video reminds me of Fatal Bazooka's first single - the Savoyard hardcore rap parody Fous ta cagoule. I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I even have his clip for J’aime trop ton boule on my blog. It may not be entirely politically correct, it may not be your cup of tea, but it is darn catchy and opens up the “why not?” possibilities (and after mentioning Les 11 commandements, I couldn’t resist!)
