    Awesome initiative.
    And a reminder: Those are of course samples of rap from various countries, not an average/categorization.

    for Korean they should have used Trax- Paradox. TRAX isn`t really a rap group, but it`s a good song. Only slightly rapish thing I like.

    It goes like this:

    "All start in the school yard. Bastard, black chocolate ball, dirty black, my generation..."

    http://www.mylyricarchive.com/booba_lyri...

    I had to google his lyrics to find what the rest of the song meant past "Schoolyard" because his french is attrocious... even for a black dude. I`m not racist... but after listening to that guy I want to become one.

    @welfarepimp - what`s a cracker?
    Is that something you put cheese on?
    Or are you just being a bit racist?

    Also the person who made this video could have used someone a little better than Sov for the British bit. Like Dizzee Rascal, Lethal Bizzle or
    that new girl Speech Debelle.

    By the way there`s no such thing as a British accent. Not in general terms. And as for saying Americans speak English - well no they don`t.
    They speak American.
    English people such as myself speak English.

    "There are no words to describe how bad/horrible/poor/fail-ridden that french rapper sound like."

    french rap actually, is pretty good. They just used a bad sample.

    "(and a little bit of the spanish. im a white girl and ive heard better spanish rap then that)"

    they should`ve used Vico C or Calle 13, it was another bad sample.

    "I guess I do suck at music genres. I would not have called the first one "rap."
    The German and Wolof ones were the best, methinks."

    Missy Elliot isnt rap???

    they should`ve used Vico C or Calle 13, it was another bad sample.

    Actually, The spanish SPEAKING rappers you stated Vico C and Calle 13 are from Latin America. The Spanish Rapper in the video you just saw is from spain. Every Latin American country have different accents and different words like slang terms even though they speak spanish. For example a Puerto Rican person might not understand a Mexican person`s slang and vice versa.
