Booba ‘Jimmy’ by Greg & Lio

Promo News - 25th Apr 2013

After their acclaimed unofficial remake of Jay Z and Kanye West’s Niggas In Paris last year, Lionel Hirlé & Grégory Ohrel – aka Greg & Lio – have followed up something even more impressive. For French rap star Booba’s Jimmy they tell the story of a young man’s journey from poverty in Africa, to drugs kingpin in Paris.

It’s told in a series of sequences, seamlessly stitched together, that literally follow our main character through the key moments of his irresistable rise and eventual downfall – sometimes in command of his fate, sometimes not. Shot in Dakar in Senegal and Paris, it’s a mini-movie that clearly owes a debt to the likes of Scarface and Goodfellas, but also manages, in a few precise brush strokes, present a crime story that gives you a bigger picture. Very good indeed.
