On n'est pas a vendre. L'economie politique du rap dans la Tunisie post-revolution
“We’re not for sale”. The political economy of rap in post-revolutionary Tunisia The paper reconstructs the links between the rap scene and the post-revolutionary political environment in Tunisia. It shows how politics, in different forms, penetrated the scene economy and disciplined it through several mechanisms of inclusion and repression. Such a political economy of rap realised, in the musical context, the logics of domination that Béatrice Hibou had individuated in pre-revolutionary Tunisia. In so doing, it unleashed conflicts of political/artistic legitimacy between rappers, which constantly restructured the scene itself.
