      French Rap Star Gets Jail Time for Dissing Country
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      French rap star facing prison
      For calling the country a 'slut'
      www.nme.com/news/Monsieur-R/23193

      A French rap star is to appear in court today (May 30) charged with offending public decency with a song in which he referred to the country as a "slut" and vowed to "piss" on national heroes Napoleon and Charles de Gaulle.

      Monsieur R is facing three years in prison or a €75,000 (£51,000) fine after an MP from the ruling UMP party launched legal action against him over his current album 'Politikment Incorrekt', reports The Guardian.

      In the video for the song 'FranSSe', Monsieur R, whose real name is Richard Makela, appears dressed as a gendarme with two naked women rubbing against the French flag as he rapped: "France is a bitch, don't forget to @#%$ her till she's exhausted/You have to treat her like a slut, man." At another point in the song, he sang: "I piss on Napoleon and on General de Gaulle."

      MP Daniel Mach proposed a law making it a criminal offence to insult the dignity of France and the French state upon hearing the album. He has since taken action against Makela, 30, for making and disseminating "violent and pornographic messages" to which minors could get access.

      The case is the latest in a series of stand-offs between MPs and rap stars. In 2003, Nicolas Sarkozy, the interior minister, brought a criminal case against the rap band Sniper, saying their music was anti-semitic, racist and insulting.

      In one song, 'La France', they referred to their home country as a "bitch". The case was thrown out of court last year. The same lawyer who defended Sniper is acting for Makela.

      Makela, who maws born and brought up in neighbouring Belgium, told Le Parisien he did not target any particular group but rapped against "the system".

      Heh, I can supply the beats!

      The freestyling though...I gotta work on that.

      You know what? More people need to come outright and say some indomitable shit like Monsieur said.

      Rapper Monsieur R Avoids Prosecution By French Government
      By EbenGregory
      www.allhiphop.com/hiphopnews/?ID=5840

      French rapper Monsieur R has avoided prosecution by the French government for controversial lyrics that compared France to a slut and the government to Germany's infamous Third Reich.

      In the song, FranSSe, Monsieur R (born Richard Makela) makes reference to relieving himself on Napoleon and General Charles De Gaulle while repeatedly referring to France as a "b**ch" that needs to be taken until exhaustion.

      The video for the song, which featured images of atrocities in Africa cut with naked white women playing with the French flag, had been banned from television.

      Outraged French politicians blamed Monsieur R for inciting some of the riots that ended in parts of Paris suburbs being burned to the ground last November.

      Late last year, French MP Daniel Mach brought charges against Monsieur R accusing him of broadcasting a violent or pornographic message, accessible to those less than 18 years of age.

      Mach also drafted legislation that would make it a criminal offense to make statements that insult the dignity of France and the French state.

      Makela faced a three-year prison term or a 75,000 euro fine, but the case was thrown out of court by the presiding judge who indicated that the MP had not himself suffered any harm and that there were no real victims.

      'The judges have been courageous,” said Dominique Tricaud, lawyer for Monsieur R. “The judges have been courageous in their judgment because there was very strong political pressure. Two hundred deputies from the parliament asked for a special law from the parliament against the rappers. They wanted to kill the rap in France.”

      The ruling marks the latest victory for rappers against French officials.

      In 2003, rap band Sniper was accused of making anti-Semitic and racist music by Nicolas Sarkozy, France’s interior minister.

      While a criminal case was filed, the case was found to have merit and the case was thrown out
