RMC Sport followed France’s victory against Germany on Tuesday at the Euro (1-0), with Koba LaD and members of Seven Binks. An evening punctuated by rooming, vintage references and the bond between the rappers of Évry. Collector’s “Double Contact” episode!
He enters the room with his usual calm. Tied hair, transparent glasses and a nonchalant walk. Time to check people and settle down on a gray sofa in front of the overhead projector. Alongside Kodes, Bolémvn and Shotas, his friends from Seven Binks, gathered for the occasion. Koba LaD then realizes that France is already leading 1-0 against Germany, Tuesday night, after the goal against his camp of Mats Hummels.
“I’m in Lizarazu mode,” announces the rapper from Évry, grabbing the RMC Sport microphone to bring the match started half an hour to life. The start of an evening full of rooming at the LLK Restaurant in Savigny-le-Temple (Seine-et-Marne)…
It is here, about fifteen minutes from his district of Parc aux Lièvres, that the 21-year-old artist followed the entry into contention of the Blues at the Euro. In his way. With a sometimes distracted eye, great bursts of laughter and some nice punchlines. His favorite player in the French team, all eras? “Marcel Desailly, because his name is Marcel like me”. The one that most resembles him? “Didier Deschamps, it’s me who places the others on the ground, but I don’t take them”, he laughs, pointing to his studio partners. “I would do a feat with Lloris, the track would be called ‘Y a rien qui rentre'”, launches Bolemvn, while Kodes pays tribute to Thierry Henry, of Martinican origin like him.
Koba embarks on a freestyle
Half-time offers the opportunity to sit down to eat. Large planks are served with a (very large) assortment of meat, fries and soda. The resumption of the game allows Shotas to showcase his talents as a commentator. Koba LaD then embarks on a freestyle, while the others improvise a beat drill to accompany him. Everyone rejoices when Kylian Mbappé cheats on Manuel Neuer in the 67th. Koba recalls that he had announced it. But the euphoria quickly subsides after the goal is canceled for an offside. Same emotional lift on the action of Karim Benzema at the end of the match. “The referee has been bought, obliged”, the guys from building 7 get angry.
“But that’s not the real Germany,” tackle Bolemvn, who predicted a success for the Mannschaft. After hailing the victory of the Blues and the XXL performance of Paul Pogba, the 91 team does not linger too much on the spot. It is 11 p.m. and it still rhymes with curfew. It is especially for them the moment to slip into the studio for a night of recording. While waiting for the release of “Cartel Volume 1”, Koba LaD’s new mixtape, scheduled for Friday June 18th.
