‘We’ve got news for you:’ Senegalese rappers tackle Syria, current events in news show
The Washington Post - 09/13/2013
The “Journal Rappe” program shows just how innovative hip-hop artists remain in Senegal, says Murray Forman, an associate professor of media and screen studies at Northeastern University.
“They’re taking it to some different place, a place we don’t commonly see hip-hop which I think is fun and exciting,” he said after watching their programs online. “What I also like about this — they’re pushing and challenging the flexibility of established media forms like a newscast.”
