Les implications sociopolitiques du rap afro-américain : de l'engagement new school au nihilisme gangsta

Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to reveal the social and political implications of African-American rap music focusing on its most controversial as well as most popular genre, gangsta rap, and to provide a better understanding of the nihilistic gangsta discourse through a textual analysis. The social rooting of rap music and the media construction of the ghetto phenomenon usually tend to reduce hip hop to a pathological ghetto culture and to qualify the rappers' discourse as obscene and amoral. The purpose of this study is to attempt to move beyond the outrageous character of rap, apprehending it in its own literary complexity and thereby ultimately revealing its social-political dimension in respect to the social, historical, political, economical and cultural parameters
