The Best New School Punchlines on Netflix (SPOILERS)

In anticipation of the finale on June 23, here are the best punchlines to remember from Netflix’s new rap TV show, Nouvelle Ecole.

After the success of Rhythm + Flow, we eagerly awaited the French adaptation of Netflix’s new rap competition. It was finally after two long years of teasing that Nouvelle Ecole arrived. The pitch is simple: the jury consisting of Niska, Shay and SCH has the mission to track down the new French-speaking rap nugget in their respective cities: Paris, Brussels and Marseille. The prize for the big winner: a check for 100,000 euros to definitively launch his career.

After the first auditions organized in Paris, fourteen candidates were selected from the twenty-four initially selected: BB Jacques, Pirate 182, Houssbad, Leys, STLR, Soumeya, Vink, Elyon, KT Gorique, Fresh la Peufra, Rayanr, Naimless, Juss and Dirlo. In a next phase, the MCs of La Nouvelle Ecole focused on practicing cyphers, or freestyles in which group cohesion should be paramount.

After the eliminations of Pirate, Rayanr, Naimless and Juss, the ten remaining MCs faced one of the most difficult exercises of the competition: the battles. The rules are clear, whoever loses his lyrical battle is eliminated from the competition. After fierce duels, it was finally Leys, STLR, Elyon, KT Gorique, Fresh la Peufra who took over their opponents. Special mention to Houssbad, who is fished out by the jury in extremis.

The next two steps, the production of a clip and the stage performance in duet with a big name in the French-language play. If each of the performers managed to portray their universe with dignity and secure the show on stage despite the pressure, only Fresh La Peufra, Leys and Elyon secured their ticket to the final. The inventory of the first seven episodes is now ready, it’s time to pay tribute to the careers of each of New School’s candidates, through a selection of their best punchlines.
