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

Youth

Karim Zenoud was born in the 20th arrondissement of Paris to Algerian immigrant parents. 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. He spent the first five years of his life in the 13th arrondissement, before his parents moved permanently to Chevilly-Larue, south of Paris.

Career

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.
