Mac Sim, a rapper hailing from the 94 district, embarked on his musical journey in the early 2000s. Known for his nuanced writing and skillful approach that balances harsh reality with a hint of optimistic light, his talent is fully showcased in his latest EP, “Operation Kintsugi”. This EP, a deep dive into his personal journey, is named after a Japanese technique that celebrates beauty in repair and symbolizes strength in vulnerability.
Although emerging from a region influenced by Mafia K1 Fry, Mac Sim has crafted his own identity by drawing from the golden roots of French rap. He emphasizes substance and message, adeptly navigating the ever-evolving French hip-hop scene, often influenced by trends from across the Atlantic.

Listeners are invited to immerse themselves in a musical journey rich in emotion and thoughtful lyrics, reflecting his artistic growth. Persisting in making his distinctive mark on the French rap scene, he captivates his audience with striking and authentic stories. Anticipation is building for the release of his new album in December, promising to be an exhilarating chapter in his musical career.
The project “Ailleurs” is a testament to musical richness and diversity. While some tracks, like the eponymous “Ailleurs”, lean towards Cloud Music, others, more rooted in rap, offer a glimpse into Mac Sim‘s artistic depth.
