A very short rap in Chadian Arabic with subtitles in French as a response to city-dwellers who look down on their rural counterparts:

And another rap song from Chad, almost all in French (with a bit of Chadian Arabic), called "Enfant Soldat," about the many children who are conscripted into an army or militia in central Africa (there are at least a few different songs about this):

One of the very few examples of rap in Irish I've seen. I don't particularly like it, but beggers can't be choosers...

Mam is a Mayan language spoken in Guatemala. One of my professors, and in fact the department chair at the time, was a linguist who worked primarily on Mam (but had also worked on a variety of other indigenous languages of the Americas). For some mysterious reason, it seems that most of the songs I manage to find in Mam are rap:

What? No imperial Mongolian rap here yet? That can't be!

Загасан ширээт тамга - Конгурей

(Judging by the comments I think they have songs in both Tuvan and Mongolian but I wouldn't know which is which)

Maître Gims, anyone?

Every time I hear this I'm reminded of how badly I need a t-shirt with "fuck la vie d'artiste" on it.

Still better than any Scottish Gaelic rap I've heard...which really isn't saying much... :|

Rap is like jazz. As a worldwide phenomena it works exceedingly well as either a subversive or confrontational artistic expression for some, but for others, it comes across as pretty kitschy.

Of course there are always those who'll want it both ways, like Manau, who are good at being culturally subversive while being enjoyably kitschy and we should all love them for that 8-)

I've never heard any good rapping in Irish. By contrast, there are some pretty accomplished rappers and toasters in the Welsh pop scene. Ed Holden is one of the best of the bunch.

A fellow UniLanger who shall remain anonymous once introduced me to Iranian rapper Hichkas through this song in Persian:

This is a rap I posted recently. The video footage is from "Bugatti" by Ace Hood. Of course, that's in English whereas this song is not, but I don't actually know which language this song is in! It's apparently called "Mbwela" and performed by an artist named Rastyna. Mbwela is the name of a Bantu language spoken in Angola, but I'm not sure whether there's actually a relationship between this particular language and this song:

There's some good hip-hop from Greece, but Cypriot Greek rap is quite recent (up to recently, most Greek Cypriot artists in any genre would move to Greece early on, and produce songs in Greece Greek).

This guy, Julio, is promising

I'm pretty sure this song qualifies as rap; apologies for the low volume, though (I have to turn it all the way up in order to hear it at all, pretty much)! :P It's obviously not in English, but I'm actually not quite sure what language it is in. I think maybe it's in Russian? It was filmed in a Macedonian village called Galičnik, but apparently, the guy filming it is of mixed Russian and Serbian descent:
