  • ‘We’ve got news for you:’ Senegalese rappers tackle Syria, current events in news show

    “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.”
