I'm low key obsessed with Stromae and I don't care who knows it. 

"But wait Nathan," you're probably thinking. Aren't you an American hip-hop head, and Stromae is a pop star from Europe? True and true, good points. But first, ultimately I'm a fan of creative and original music, and Stromae's creative output is absolutely extraordinary. Go watch "Papatoui" or "Formidable" - there's a very, very short list of artists executing concepts like that. 

And second, you clearly don't know about Stromae's deep hip-hop roots, from his beginning days as a rapper to his collaborations with Kanye West and others. It sounds like you need someone to create a guide to Stromae's life and music so you can get up on game, something like the guide I wrote for Pepsi Pulse. I'm telling you, forget genre, forget geography, if you love music, get to know Stromae.
