I'm so surprised there's anything online in this :shock: I mean, maybe I shouldn't be since Salishan languages are relatively popular, but still :P

Dammit, I have listened to so much great Russian rap, but now forget what songs :oops:

The Repente is an ancient Brazilian musical style with improvised lyrics. Below a "rap battle" between rappers and repentistas:

Oh, sorry, I totally forgot to answer your question! :shock: It's a song in Lolopo (or at least I think it is). There used to be a YouTube link, but I don't think there is one anymore. I also posted the Tudou link, though, which still exists.

The lyrics are under the video on youtube.
I love it, it's like a more aggressive version of Turkish, and by looking at the lyrics I can understand nearly 100% of it.

OK, maybe this is technically hip-hop and not rap(?), but I've been posting in Tagalog lately, and nobody ever mentioned "Bebot" on this thread, so...

It's a pretty good song for learning some Tagalog even if you're not really into hip-hop or rap. :)

Cool song! I had no idea the Black Eyed Peas had ever done anything in Tagalog.

By the way, it is both rap and hip hop. Rap is the singing technique (rhyming words to the beat), while hip hop is the musical genre. Colloquially people don't tend to differentiate them that much.

Apparently it was super-famous in the Bay Area (so basically, in and around San Francisco. I'm not sure how intelligible this term is to non-Americans) when it came out and all the dance clubs or whatever would play it constantly.

This is a rap song in Romani from Macedonia that I just randomly happened to came across. :P
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEQ2LwH9uro
I also found a Romani(?) video with a rap song in Croatian(?), apparently from Italy, but that song is then followed by a non-rap song, so I'll post it over in the BCS songs thread the next time I get around to BCS sometime next year. :whistle: (Hopefully in January or February)

These are two rap songs in Camfranglais, a pidgin spoken in Cameroon and formed from local varieties of both French and English as well as Cameroonian Pidgin English. It's apparently becoming increasingly popular with young Cameroonians. The first is called "Ndembre Man" and is by Sir Negryon:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDoxzKbUqaM
Lyrics: https://kamerlyrics.net/lyric-281-sir-n ... dembre-man

And the second is a lyric video with a translation into French (even though some of the lines are just French :P) of a song called simply "Je go" (i.e. I'm leaving) and is by Koppo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUW7dg9bZDk
This is another song that I think is just in Spanish, at least for the most part, but it comes from San Basilio de Palenque, a village formed and governed by escaped slaves in Colombia in 1691(!):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBTlw9Le5Zc
This is a song from Saudi Arabia in Arabic (I'm not sure which variety, but I think it's one of the Saudi ones) that's basically a political satire addressing the exploitation of South Asian immigrants in Saudi Arabia. Turn on CC for subs in English:
