Légendes du rap : entre authentification et mythification de soi en concert

Abstract : In the continuity of a previous research on the theatricality of the hip-hop concert, this thesis describes the different processes of authentication and mythification of the figure of the rapper, from the writing to the performance. The agonistic and narcissistic traditions of rap reveal the issues related to identity and the quest for oneself in a disenchanted world. As a self-fictional writing and art of reference, rap would allow its author to identify his inexpressible self, to reappropriate it, notably through processes of amplification, displacement and reconstruction of reality. Therefore, the rapper's approach seems paradoxical : how to unveil this self within an emphatic and ostentatious event such as the concert ? Resurgence of Dionysian rituals, straddling reality and fiction, the rap concert seems to involve the public in a ritual and festive collective creation, generating the birth and the physical experience of the legend of the rapper.
