Sunday Morning Music Trivia

Well, Sunday Evening - So shoot me.  MC Solaar was born Claude M'Barali In Senegal to Chadian parents. When he was six months old his parents emigrated to France where they eventually settled in the Paris suburb of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges. He studied languages at the Jussieu university campus, and was a post-graduate in philosophy. As a rapper MC Solaar is known for his complexity, which relies on word play, lyricism, and philosophical inquiry. 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." Indeed, I can't begin to translate his output, but in the end it is almost not relevant; The stunning flow itself transcends mere language.
