Si je traine en bas de chez toi
BOOBA

This French hip-hop quote means: “if I hang around your hood the real estate price crash”.
As a matter of fact, I don’t hang around your hood.

I started from scratch
IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE

When I say that “I started from scratch” I mean it.
With no money I used to sell burgers, collect trashes, clean toilets, and all other kind of really bad jobs so I could put food on the table.
I never stopped believing in my passion for art anyway, and keep creating stuffs despite the tough life.

20000 Lieues Sous La Merde
LA CAUTION

This punchline play with the title 20000 Leagues Under the Sea.
La Caution changed Sea with Shit, a word phonetically close is french.
This crappy image describe the situation where the characters I draw were living before moving to the jungle.

My identity by itself causes violence
NWA

Welcome to a world of violence where my characters try to create a new identity for themselves.
They struggle to find what the meaning of life is, and look into hip hop punchlines to build the basis of a new philosophy.
