Rap texts are generally less analysed in terms of enunciation and argumentation. The rap song Banlieusards, written by the politically engaged French rapper Kery James, offers a particularly interesting staging of enunciation to study from the perspective of a “manifesto” political speech. By building an ethos of a rapper-speaker, Kery James invites us to reverse the negative axiological values attributed to the adjective “banlieusard” by addressing an audience that he constitutes as a community united by common sufferings. After defining to what extent rap can be described as “manifesto”, we will analyse the strategies for reversing counter-speeches and the dramatization of enunciation in this hymn to the youth of the French suburbs.

Abstract

Rap texts are generally less analysed in terms of enunciation and argumentation. The rap song Banlieusards, written by the politically engaged French rapper Kery James, offers a particularly interesting staging of enunciation to study from the perspective of a “manifesto” political speech. By building an ethos of a rapper-speaker, Kery James invites us to reverse the negative axiological values attributed to the adjective “banlieusard” by addressing an audience that he constitutes as a community united by common sufferings. After defining to what extent rap can be described as “manifesto”, we will analyse the strategies for reversing counter-speeches and the dramatization of enunciation in this hymn to the youth of the French suburbs.
