journalrappe_sliderSenegalese rappers have been known for informing their countrymen about social and political issues, but now Xuman and Keyti have taken it a step further. These two well known MCs are producing a series of short videos that resemble a news broadcast, complete with backdrops, interview cutaways and headline ticker at the bottom of the screen. In each video they provide reporting and commentary about happenings in Senegal and West Africa – and then entire show is rapped! Check out the series so far, with more guest rappers/reporters in later videos.
