Roughly translated to "large sick body," French musician and rapper Fabien Marsaud took on his Grand Corps Malade moniker after a diving accident left him physically disabled at just 20 years of age. Before he turned to music, Marsaud was a slam poet in the Parisian suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis and this passionate, free-flowing style had an obvious effect on his future endeavors--his rapping style in particular. He debuted his music in 2003 and has been steadily touring and recording since then. Jazzy noodling and classical piano are common musical elements that serve to frame Marsaud's words in Grand Corps Malade's music, which has found plenty of fans of lyrically-rich rap and pop throughout France.
