PARIS — A little-known French rapper’s violent music video that intones “hang the whites” amid calls for killing “the white babies” has created a small uproar in France, with politicians rushing to condemn it, anti-racism groups denouncing it and the Paris prosecutor’s office opening an investigation.
The video depicts a hitherto obscure rapper from the Paris suburb of Noisy-le-Grand, Nick Conrad, kidnapping a white man, stuffing him into the trunk of a car, shoving a pistol into his mouth and shooting him. Then it shows the man’s hanged body. All the while the rapper repeats “hang the whites.”
