Although it contains unforgivable anti-Semitic remarks, this rap song also gives, through the media conflict that has opened up since its release, a foretaste of the kind of intimidation and censorship that awaits all artists if the National Rally comes to power.

It is a fight of words that begins. It was expected, so to speak foreseen in the title, Not pass, borrowed from the rallying cry of anti-fascist soldiers during the Spanish Civil War, which became the desperate cry of the losers of a murderous war, the outcome of which was the accession to power of the fascist dictator Franco for almost forty years. Since its release on streaming platforms at midnight on Monday, this river of rap song initiated by veteran producer Djamel Fezari, aka Kore, and around twenty rappers from all generations of the French scene including Zola, Kerchak, Alkpote, Akhenaton, RK, Seth Gueko and Fianso, continues to cause political turmoil among those it attacks head-on, the representatives of the National Rally.

The first people concerned, Jordan Bardella and Marine Le Pen, expressed their concern on their social networks, along with the editorialists of CNews, but also colleagues who would not be suspected of being political sympathisers of the extreme right and who nevertheless began with them scrupulous explanations of the text which, in the great tradition of the social and cultural stigmatisation of rap, confuse personal speech and artistic expression.
