Depuis le milieu des années 1980, le hip-hop en Afrique de l’Ouest, parmi les rares genres musicaux communs à toute la région, a considérablement contribué à la vitalité du secteur musical local et au changement social au sein de la jeunesse ouest-africaine. La musique hip-hop s’est entre autres affirmée à travers l’articulation de perspectives socioculturelles et idéologico-politiques nouvelles. En retraçant les géographies désormais mondialisées du hip-hop et de son expression musicale, ce texte propose une analyse de la production politique de la musique hip-hop à partir des initiatives du collectif ouest-africain, AURA. La mobilisation de ces acteurs hip-hop illustre ainsi une lecture de la politique différentielle et de la politique de la différence inscrites dans ce genre musical en Afrique de l’Ouest.\ud \ud Abstract in English: \ud \ud AURA or some political production of hip-hop music\ud \ud For the last twenty years, hip-hop in West Africa, among the few musical genres common to the whole region, has considerably contributed to the vitality of the local musical sector as well as to social change among the West African youth. hip-hop music has asserted itself through the articulation of new socio-cultural and ideologico-political perspectives. Drawing the nowadays globalised geographies of hip-hop and its musical expression, this article suggests an analysis of the political production of hip-hop musical from the West African collective, AURA. The mobilisation of those hip-hop actors thus illustrates the application of the differential politics and the politics of difference inscribed in this musical genre in West Africa.
