Conscious Senegalese rap is not dead

Under President Wade, the political and economical situation has continued to deteriorate in Senegal for the past ten years. While many have suffered under the rule, rappers, Thiat and Kilifeu from the central Senegalese town of Kaolack stood up and denounced acts of corruption and served jail time as a result. Now they are back with a gem of a video, directed by Senegalese new school crew Gelongal, the video “Coup 2 Gueule” (Let’s act on our Words). The video becomes even more relevant in the current state of crisis.
