Video: Lexxus Legal "Fauchés"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


Congolese rapper Lexxus Legal delivers this new video for hard hitting Kinshasa-street anthem "Fauchés" featuring Leslyman. Lexxus, also known as Alex Dende, is the leader and founding member of the group PNB (Pensée Nègre Brute). His forceful French verses aim at the ails that haunt his native DRC and Africa in general, which he cites as being "corruption, globalization, the inadequacy of the World Trade Organization... [and] the frivolity of some African leaders." For the non-Francophones out there, fauché = without money.
