Mesurer les processus d’(il)légitimation des musiques hip-hop en France: Méthodologie et premiers résultats d’une recherche en cours sur la période 1990-2019

Abstract : The legitimation of artistic fields is a classic question in sociology of culture, especially within popular music studies. In this paper, we present the first steps and quantitative methodology of an ongoing investigation into this process within rap and hip-hop music. While until the first half of the 2010s, the rap genre was caught up in contradictory dynamics, it seems that, since the second half of the decade, it has benefited from a significant, if unfinished, process of legitimation. To draw our conclusions, we have built several media and commercial legitimacy indicators the media, by capturing the historical evolution of rap’s television and radio presence, on the one hand, and by observing this same evolution in the attribution of grants and awards for emerging or confirmed musicians, on the other hand. We compare this data to figures on the evolution of the record industry market in France. We expose the methodology we have used to define how artists are labeled by contemporary legitimizing instances in France, and establish comparisons between different musical genres.
