Karim Zenoud (French pronunciation: [kaʁim zenud]; Arabic: كريم زنود, born 19 April 1985), better known by his stage name Lacrim (/lɑːˈkrɪm/,[1] French: [lakʁim]; sometimes stylized as LaCrim), is an Algérian-French rapper of Algerian descent.

Youth[edit]

Karim Zenoud was born in the 20th arrondissement of Paris to Algerian immigrant parents.[2] Both of his parents are Kabyle, his father's family is from Sidi Daoud and his mother's from Béjaïa. He is also the grandson of actress Ouardia Hamtouche.[2] He spent the first five years of his life in the 13th arrondissement, before his parents moved permanently to Chevilly-Larue, south of Paris.[3]

Career[edit]

After collaborations with various rappers, he released his album Faites entrer Lacrim in May 2012 followed by a mixtape Toujours le même in December 2012. The following two albums, Corleone in 2014 and Force & Honneur in 2017 both topped the French Albums Chart. He also released three successive mixtapes under the R.I.P.R.O series two in 2015 and a third in 2017.

Legal issues[edit]

Accused of possession of a kalashnikov gun, he was condemned to three years of imprisonment. After 8 months of hiding in Morocco,[4] he presented himself on 9 September 2015 to the French authorities who imprisoned him for a second time in three years.[5][6] He was released on 28 November 2016, after remaining in incarceration for a full year.[7]
