Keyti and Xuman

Journal Rappé

Since its inception as a YouTube video, both the Senegalese and international community have praised Keyti and Xuman’s weekly show Journal Rappé. Each week the rappers deliver the week’s top new stories in rhyme — they literally rap the news — with a little bit of colored commentary and humor thrown into each segment. Journal Rappé also illuminates hard, pressing issues, ones that are often overshadowed by popular culture fluff or shrouded by political agendas and biases. The rappers unearth what really matters, the news that directly affects the Senegalese audience’s everyday lives.
