Rapper Xuman is the host of Journal Rappe  – a weekly news program in Senegal that is rapped in Wolof, French, and English. Journal Rappe is not a gimmick. It’s serious, hard-hitting news – just rapped.

Charles Monroe-Kane sat down with Xuman in our studios in Madison to discuss the future of hip hop. They were joined by Toni Blackman, former  Hip Hop Ambassador to the US State Department.
