Hardcore Ho99o9 heats up Paris Afropunk fest

By Alison Hird

American hardcore/rap outfit Ho99o9 pumped up the volume at this year's Paris Afropunk fest. Naughty but nice Blue and Eaddy talk to RFI about cross-dressing, being yourself and why it was cool playing to French audiences even if they don't understand the language of their music. It's from their debut album United States of Horror by the way.
