Who is Booba?

Elie Yaffa, better known under his stage name Booba is a French rapper. After a brief stint as a break dancer in the early 1990s, Booba partnered with his friend Ali to form Lunatic. The duo released a critically acclaimed album in 2000 but disbanded in 2003. Booba has since embarked on a successful solo career, selling more than ten million discs over his career and becoming the most legally downloaded artist in French history. Today, Booba is an icon of modern French pop culture, typically revered for the quality of his flow and beats but often criticized because of controversial nature of his lyrics.
