Abstract

Banlieue is a suburban area in France which is close to immigrant communities and their descendants. Banlieue has two important roles for their young generations, as a social space and as an expression space. Rap is one of the cultural products of this young people that was born in this social space. This article will show the extent to which young people in banlieue areas are represented in Sadek’s song: Banlieue. In this song, the banlieue is not only represented as a space of construction, but more like a multidimensional space that represents the life of the immigrants and their youth in France who never escapes from the various social problems that occur there. Using qualitative methods and the concept of representation, the results of the analysis reveal the other side of the banlieue as a battle arena and dream space for this youth suburban .
