From delivering pizza around Paris to racking up more than 500 million views on YouTube, meet MHD, the Guinean-French rapper taking the world by storm. He grew up in Paris’ 19th arrondissment (home for many immigrants to France, particularly from North Africa). His videos often highlight the kids and community on the streets of where he grew up.MHD calls his style “Afro-trap’’, a fusion of African music and trap music, but it’s more like he does dance-rap. He raps in French so for English speaking rap fans, his lyrics are difficult to understand. But you don’t have to understand the language to feel the energy his music gives you. His music is huge in Francophone countries and he recently performed in Guinea to more than 65,000 people. His nine-part Afro Trap series has racked up an insane 473 plus views on YouTube so you know MHD is no small fish.
If African sounds, heavy drums and crazy dance-able beats is your thing. Look no further than MHD, a mega star in the making.
