Senegalese rappers' political message
5 August 2011 Last updated at 07:08 BST
Rappers from Senegal have helped set up a movement known as 'Enough is Enough' calling for greater democracy and better living conditions.
One of their key demands is for President Abdoulaye Wade to drop plans to stand for a third-term in office.
They are also urging young people to register to vote ahead of next year's elections.
