Twelve articles discuss questions surrounding French rap (the acclimation of an American form, the relationships to songs, to politics), the interactions between music, DJing, dance, video clips and the movies (the aesthetics of Jim Jarmush's Ghost Dog, Eminem and MTV…). A third sequence polemically discusses a few recent books dedicated to hip-hop studies, tacking the genre's globalization.

A debate on whether rap is soluble in French song starts between Anthony Pecques and Christophe Rubin, continued in the next issue of Volume! (4-1, 2005).
