Video: “N*ggas In Paris” Used In French Presidential Campaign

By on April 22, 2012

With few exceptions, in America politicians try dumb hard to disassociate themselves with the world of hip-hop. Interestingly enough, overseas French presidential candidate François Hollande looks to be running on the cray ticket by making one of the biggest hip-hop tracks of the last 12 months the theme music for his campaign. Hollande employs Jay-Z and Kanye West’s hit “N*ggas In Paris” and surprisingly leaves all the foul language and lewd rhymes unchecked.

If you pay close attention to the video you’ll notice many shots of black and Arab youths rallying for the candidate; thus, leading one to the conclusion that this campaign strategy is catered to securing the support of France’s young people. #VoteSoHard
