The full album "Panique Celtique" soon followed, coming out in October 1998 and selling over a million copies in its first year. The French rappers were lauded for their original and catchy combination of Rap, Hip-Hop, and Celtic influences, and became very popular. Their next album "Fest Noz de Paname", was release in October 2000, and was noticeably different, partially due to R.V.'s leaving the band. The CD still achieved some mainstream success, and incorporated a wider variety of influences than the previous CD, including some blues and jazz. « hide
