13 Block’s “BLO” is proof that pockets of “revolutionary hip-hop” exist beyond our borders.


It took a total of 5 full-length projects for 13 Block to reach the pinnacle of French rap. While that might seem like child’s play to a MAGA fundamentalist, the truth of the matter is: the French hip-hop scene remains deeply entrenched in its revolutionary phase, due to endless social tensions marked by the country’s post-colonial past and present.

That’s precisely where 13 Block comes into play, boasting the versatility to switch between a political pose, and virtual turn-up in a mere two seconds flat. Behind every distrusting plotline waged against French authoritarianism lies a pocket of inventiveness, that doesn’t sound at all like anything that’s being produced in the Americas.

Quotable Lyrics:

J’ai laissé mon cœur à la maison, qui n’a pas vécu, verra tchi
J’ai laissé mon cœur à la maison, anticipe la frappe, Verratti
J’ai laissé mon cœur à la maison, j’vais l’laisser, laisser
J’ai laissé mon cœur à la maison, j’l’ai laissé, laissé.

– Stavo of 13 Block
