Gen is gradually emerging as one of the most promising talents on the new French-language rap scene. After capturing attention with his Dog Day EP released last summer, Gen follows it up with the hard-hitting 'Gennifer', a musically dense six-track album focusing on a love affair that unfolds through a unique narrative.
His music is direct yet subtle. The Parisian rapper's lyrics straddle the line between introspection and analysis of the world around him, to create a resolutely modern and unique sound that continues the broad heritage of French hip-hop. Drawing on a rich musical palette nurtured by eclectic influences that include Detroit instrumentals and electronic sounds, Gen's music is always a blend of styles, but never one of compromise.
