Laouni, alias La Fouine, is a Franco-Moroccan rapper who was born in Trappes in 1981. Drawn more to music than to studies, he quit school at the age of 14. In 2003, he signed up with Sony. He was also employed as a mediator in sensible districts in Trappes. La Fouine released his first album, titled Bourré de Son (Crammed up with Sounds) in 2004, and then a second one, titled Aller retour (Round Trip), three months later. Success came in 2009 with the Opus, Mes Repères (My Landmarks), which was consecrated double Golden Record. La Fouine also regularly released mix-tapes: Planète Trappe 1 et 2 (Planet Trappes 1 and 2); Capitale du Crime 1 et 2 (Crime Capital 1 and 2). This enabled him to multiply collaborations and artists discovery, through his label, Banlieue Sale (or, Dirty Suburb).
