Given birth to Salim Lakhdiri in Boulogne-Billancourt in 1981, hardcore rapper LIM began in the rap collective Mo’vez Lang with friends Cens Nino and Boulox. Quickly coming to the interest of hip-hop group Les Sages Poetes de la Rue, the trio toured with them through the ’90s. The substantial collective Defeat de Boul was created from this cooperation, launching Dans la Sono in 1997 and Dans la Ville in 1999. After performances on various observed compilations and mixtapes with Mo’vez Lang, LIM released his first solo outing in 2005, along with his very own tough make of road talk not really unlike the bravado of fellow rappers Rohff or Kamelancien. This record, like its 2007 follow-ups, Maxi Delinquant (a mixtape) and Delinquant (the state second solo discharge), ticked all of the normal hip-hop containers, with monitors about medications, sex, and the authorities most prominent. An uglier aspect to his lyrics, as in the horribly entitled “Moi Aussi Je Veux Baiser la Pute de la Republique,” noticed him prohibited from rap radio stalwart Skyrock.
