Sexion D'Assaut - Parisian Rappers Roll Deep

Not since Wu Tang Clan has a crew of rappers rolled this deep...

It all started in 2002, when Sexion D'Assaut had a crew of 22 rappers. 22 rappers! But only the most thoroughbread fellas stuck it out, and over the years, it's dwindled down to 8 core members, with other rappers coming in and out along the way...

Over the years, the collective has released various albums with various members making appearances on each, but it wasn't until 2009 that the crew released their first full group album, The Head Crash, as a mixtape on the streets. The Head Crash had them touring all over France to packed houses. They have that hardcore energy and street savvy lyricism that amps up the crowd.

The School of Vital Points was the group's official debut album, released in 2010. The album went triple platinum and brought Sexion D'Assaut mainstream success. They are among the first French artists (with Daft Punk and David Guetta) to surpass one million fans on Facebook.

In 2011, they are releasing a free underground track from one of their crew members once every 2 weeks...And this week, their song Paris Va Bien is at the top of the Urban Charts in France.

Here's the video for Paris Va Bien - we love the French style and panache they exude in this video...ooh la la - nothing like a gangsta in a finely tailored french suit...
