*Swedish: "Petter"
*French: "MC Solaar"

I would really like to hear some rap music in Chinese and in some African language

I'm listening to a bit of German music right now. Sometimes it's a bit more ridiculous when you know enough German to understand it ;)

German Rap:

Fanta4 ( Die Fantastischen Vier ): Last Album: "4:99"

(Link has demo mp3's )

Try searching for "Die Da" from the album "Vier gewinnt". When I was in school, this was the song that made them famous. Use a legal filesharing tool of your choice ( propably the one formerly from Holland because quite a few Germans are using it ) to get a legal copy of it. Don't forget to pay :p

Xavier Naido was a rapper once, I guess he's doing a lot of balads now... disliked him anyway.

"Fettes Brot" ( dumb name... fat bread ), "Absolute Beginner", "Curse"...

"seeed" :music monks
a really cool Reggae / HipHop combination

Belgium rap rocks:D.
Heres a link to some songs from a rap group that lives in my street (i think they are pretty good). I especially like the song "Bedelen of bedelen".
Depending of the intonation its a different word translated to english its called "to beg or to give" (well translation isnt very funny but when you understand Dutch its a well found thingy).
Empedocles (the group im talking about)link: Bedelen of bedelen (http://users.skynet.be/konings/empedocles/songs/empedocles-bedelen_of_bedelen.mp3)
,1-2 Stand (http://users.skynet.be/konings/empedocles/songs/empedocles-1-2-stand.mp3)
These are free to download with permission of the group, there homepage is this (www.empedocles.tk)

My best friend is Indian/English, and a DJ, so I've heard lots and lots of Indian rap...he always hits me when I start giggling.
