"Thanks for coming, you did not let it go": after the fight and the trial, the French rap boss Booba found the scene and his overheated audience on Saturday night at La Defense Arena in Paris, full of 32,000 fans.

An airplane cabin acts as a scene for the solitary man on stage, a leather aviator jacket and an imposing build. Ten giant screens transmit images of a burning city. In front of him, the fans take each of his words in chorus and make the largest room in Europe vibrate by jumping.

Serena, Booba walks on stage, beats the hands of his fans for the biggest concert of his career, greets the Senegalese in the room, he calls Karim Benzema to join him. An image in contrast to the one shown in his resounding battle with Kaaris Orly in the heart of the summer, which ended last week with a sentence of 18 months suspended and 50,000 euros from Créteil Criminal Court .

Booba "is over: he is a senior"

The 41-year-old rapper, who lives in Florida, in recent days has raised the temperature on social networks with videos of his rehearsals, bodybuilding sessions and new provocations, this time against rapper La Fouine.

The one who sold 300,000 copies of his last album, throne, saw his last single, BB, to be at the top of the rankings on streaming platforms. The security measures have been adapted to the size of the event, called "high caliber" by the prefecture of Hauts-de-Seine. No confrontation or overflow was noted before the concert.

Good guy, the audience had filled the floor of the La Defense Arena in Paris, usually dedicated to Racing 92 rugby matches, which will soon welcome Paul McCartney, Mylène Farmer or the Soprano rapper. "It is only he who can gather many people in the same place, at home in 92", testifies Amandine, a young Belgian who confesses to follow him "since the beginning", even when he did not "age to listen to him.

For Peter, Booba "is over: he is a senior". Admire "the constancy in his career, the years to renew himself and for all the time to be there, a little like Charles Pasqua, like Balkany, all the great ones of the 92 remain for life". Tonight, "there are all ages, it could be younger than last time," said this thirty. The native of Boulogne-Billancourt had already been the first rapper to complete, alone, the AccorHotels Arena in 2015.
