Timeline

2018

MC Solaar is known for his complex lyrics and distinctive flows, which rely on word play, lyricism, and inquiry. In the English-speaking world, Solaar was signed by London-based acid jazz record label Talkin’ Loud and recorded with British group Urban Species and the late rapper Guru, who was a member of the critically acclaimed New York-based rap group Gang Starr. Solaar has since released eight studio albums and one live album. The 8th studio album, Géopoétique, produced by Alain Etchart and mixed by sound engineer David Gnozzi, won best album of the year at the Victoires de la Musique awards in 2018.

2007

“Da Vinci Claude”, the first single from Solaar’s album Chapitre 7, was launched in March 2007. The album was released on 18 June 2007. MC Solaar is best known outside France for his work on Guru’s Jazzmatazz project and as a featured artist on the Missy Elliott track “All N My Grill”. His collaboration with her propelled him to higher popularity in the U.S market. The single “Le Bien, Le Mal” (The Good, The Bad) has been a hip hop/dance crossover hit and has received playtime on MTV, which characterizes his work this way: “His fluid phrasing makes up for his lack of English, and the production on his solo work (by DJ Jimmy Jay and Boom Bass of La Funk Mob) surpasses that of most of his hip-hop contemporaries.”

2003

On 7 December 2003, MC Solaar married Chloé Bensemoun and on 7 May 2004, she gave birth to the couple’s first child, a son named Roman. In 2007, she gave birth to a daughter named Bonnie.

1998

Solaar returned to the studio in 1997 with longtime friend and producer Jimmy Jay to record his third album, Paradisiaque. The album was another success, which led to an extensive European tour starting on 9 January 1998 at the Zénith in Paris. His talents led to international interest from places such as Germany, Japan and the United States not long after. He was included as a guest on American rapper Guru’s “Jazzmatazz” project and one of Solaar’s songs was included in the Tommy Boy rap compilation in the United States.

In 1998, MC Solaar embarked on a massive tour beginning at the Zénith de Paris. The concert he presents is a show with DJs and dancers (as the hip-hop dancer Bintou Dembélé) which overpasses the musical frame. The cover of Cinquieme As depicts Solaar topless, and draws comparisons to captives about to be taken onto a slave ship. However, a look at the inside cover reveals Solaar to be in a wrestler’s costume, along with the other men in the picture. As Veronique Helenon discusses in her article concerning the French hip hop scene, references to Africa and “blackness” are a very important part of Solaar’s music. Solaar recognises and pays tribute to the African presence in France by using boxing and wrestling references. Senegalese boxer Battling Siki is referenced in the album’s booklet. Although Siki won the light heavyweight boxing championship in 1922, he still faced racism from journalists. This image combined with songs concerning colonial oppression and the migration experience from Africa to France show Solaar’s “blackness,” something that is extremely important in the French hip-hop scene. For example, in his song “Les Colonies”, Solaar discusses the similarities between the oppression of Africans by colonialists to the modern day exploitation of “third world” countries. “Cinquième As” includes lyrics in French, English, and Spanish, which represents his ideals that rap should be inclusive of all people. In early 2004, his 2001 song “La Belle et Le Bad Boy” was featured on the final episode of the popular U.S. television series Sex and the City. The MTV series “The Hills” featured the song as well.

1997

MC Solaar has been a member of the Les Enfoirés charity ensemble since 1997.

1994

MC Solaar released Prose Combat in 1994. It sold 100,000 copies in the first week of being released and became a bestseller in 20 other countries. In February 1995 he received an award for Best Male Singer of the Year at the 10th edition of the French “Victoires de la Musique” awards. Also in 1994, MC Solaar appeared on the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African American community, was heralded as Album of the Year by Time.

1991

After the success of Bouge de là, Solaar went on to support the famous American rap group De La Soul when they performed at the Olympia in Paris in September 1991. At the close of 1991, Solaar released Qui Sème le Vent Récolte le Tempo which went on to sell over 400,000 copies in France. With the success of his debut album in France, Solaar embarked upon extensive tours of Poland and Russia. In December 1992, he performed in twelve countries across West Africa, where his French rap style proved extremely popular with African music fans.

1990

He studied languages at the Jussieu university campus and was a postgraduate in Philosophy. He released his first single in 1990. MC Solaar went to Paris in the summer of 1991 with his friend Jimmy Jay in hopes of succeeding in the music industry. Success came quickly when his first single, Bouge de là (“Get Out of There”), based on a sample from Cymande’s song The Message (1973) became a hit in the early 1990s. Many rappers who came out of Africa at the time spoke a lot about slavery and other topics in order to bring the history of their people into light. Nevertheless, the song went platinum in France and reached #5 on the national charts.

Solaar’s career continued to evolve throughout the late 1990s and into the new millennium. He released Cinquième As in 2001, to critical acclaim and Mach 6 in 2003. In the album’s third track, “Lève-Toi et Rap”, Solaar describes his parents’ move to France as well as his own roots growing up in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges and Cairo. Towards the beginning of the song he says: Puis trip en Egypte, Ecole Française du Caire/ Pour parfaire mon flow et mon vocabulaire/ Là j’ai appris l’humilité, la peur des cartouches/ Pur style de sniper camouflage paw-mouche, which translated, means he spent time at a French school in Cairo, perfecting his rapping style and learning how to survive a dangerous lifestyle. Critic Dan Gennoe attests to Solaar’s “flow et vocabulaire” by noting “the flow of his words is staggering, as are the low-slung grooves that they roll to; deftly vaulting all language barriers.”
