How often you hear of a rapper that is inspired by the poetry of Charles Baudelaire in his lyric-writings? Exactly: almost never. The French writer and rapper Abd Al Malik is besides Baudelaire also very much inspired by the philosophical ideologies of Martiniquais Édouard Glissant. There was a time he was a young kid from the banlieu, often struggling and getting in and out from prison. He will now tell his story in this theatre concert, initiated by the Musée d’Orsay from Paris, which is part of the much-discussed exhibition about the black model in art history.
