Weekind Rewind: David Guetta appears in video for first ever record, the 1990 French hip-hop ‘Nation Rap’
Before he became the star that’s worked with everyone from Will.I.Am to Akon, the poster boy for dance music’s success that’s taken home Grammy Awards, or the top-ranked headliner of music festivals around the globe, David Guetta had decades of experience beneath his belt. Of course, there were his traditional house records and albums, his FMIF parties that dominated Ibiza, and his push to pioneer the genre he loved, but before all the glammor and glitz, he marked his first musical work as a rap record. Guetta’s debut was the production of “Nation Rap” for French rapper Sidney, and the track’s music video reveals the now-superstar emerged within the 1990’s culture — a setting in which you may have never imagined him in even after award show appearances.
Find David scratching discs after the video’s 2:20 for a comical blast from the past.
