French Rioters Release Hip-Hop CD
C7 H16 releases "G la rage et je la garde"
["I have rage and i'm keeping it. I'm pissed and i'm staying pissed..."]
A quick translation of the intro of the CD (also the intro on the website):
In the beginning of the winter, the suburbs have been set on fire and
that's a good thing. In the middle of the urbanisation of capitalism,
there is nothing more to hope for, nothing more to win...a lot of us
have played with a bit of fire. (a lot have paid some joy of fire)
Our hatred is not negotiable, from generation to generation, it's the
same shit. Confronting the State and its representatives, those who walk
up straight while we are slaves. That's the meaning of the rioters,
those who have rage, those who don't want the life they're condemned to.
Nothing new, and nothing is finished, it has only begun. The fire spread
everywhere. And it will spread again, from itself, because this revolt
is more profound than any word of order.

the peoples...."-- mahmoud ahmadinejad
