This documentary traces the incredible saga of hip hop in Marseilles, a musical, cultural and social phenomenon which, in the past 30 years, has become an unprecedented success story. Hip-hop is part of the soul of Marseilles, a city where the spoken word has always been essential. It is also an expression of its social and cultural situation.

IAM, Soprano, JuL, the Fonky Family, SCH, Keny Arkana, Alonzo, Soso Maness, Kofs, Bouga and many other rappers, composers and producers recount the genesis and development of this urban music movement, whose discourse has become universal and inter-generational.
