Gambian Hip Hop – Style & Hip Hop Music Culture


The foundation of hip hop in Gambia takes place in the early 1990s after the release of the first national television called “Gambia Radio & Television Services (GRTS)”.

Among the first rap groups we mention:

  •  Pencha B,
  •  Da Fugitivz 
  •  Born Africans.


These crews were among the best known in those times as combining different styles like: Salsa, Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop or by a combination of the styles which makes those African troops to be distinctive from other hip hop bands from around the world.


Da Fugitivz’s


After graduating, Tazman’s, on his real name Tijan Jabang, former member of “House Vibes“, along with Mohammed Kah (Mo-Hawk), Joseph Senghore (Seabreeze) and Samuel George (DJ Graduate) have officially formed the band in 1997 called Da Fugitivz.

Each Member had a different style, Tazman and DJ Graduate were inclined towards dancehall and reggae, Mo-Hawk spits rap in “Wollof” language and  Seabreeze filled the hearts of listeners with a Soulful R&B.

Shortly afterwards the band near capital Banjul, will become one of the most popular crews of African Hip Hop Music . Among their singles: “Ndongo Dara“, “Lingai Jai” or “Indilmasa Love“.

Following the release of the first album “Fu 4 Life” they will be invited in Germany at Pop Com Musical Festival where they perform together with big names from the music industry, which will be weighing heavy in their musical career.

   Is a musical genre originally from the south of the USA created at the beginning of the 90’s that’s based of the classical 808 Drum Kit.

Us south trap music
Aggressive Brass, Triple Hi-Hats, Snappy Snare ,loud Kick and 808 long bass samples sounds make this musical style different from all other genres.

   Even the unusual tempo  of (135 – 170 BPM Double or Triple time) drives it further from the classical Hip Hop (70 – 115 BPM).



The “TRAP” Term


   Refers to the place where drugs are being sold; the drug dealers are known as “Trappers” and the consumers as prey.

   Socially “Trap” may also refer to a neighborhood, area or suburb with a very high unemployment rate where most residents don’t have jobs, unable to commit, partly because of the environment, leading to drug use and working in the drug trafficking trade.

Origins 1990 – 2010

   The term appears for the first time in Atalanta, and among the first rappers to use the term “Trap” in music are: : Cool Breeze, Outkast and Goodie Mob.

   The genre has been introduced to the musical industry at the beginning of the 90’s by UGK, Three 6 Mafia, Master P and Cool Breze.

  In 2003 comes the first wave of trap music to the mainstream with the launch of T.I.’s second album titled “Trap Musik” selling more the 2 million copies.

   The album’s single “24’s” has been used in the soundtrack of “Need for speed: Underground

   In 2005 another album makes it to the 2nd place in the billboards, this time from Young Jeezy with the album “Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101”.

Climax 2010 – present

 The second wave brings many producers of TRAP MUSIC, the most popular being Lex Luger in just 1 year producing over 200 songs. Some of

the artists he has collaborated with are Kanye West, Jay-Z or Rick Ross. At present it is one of the most successful musical genres influencing genres like pop, dance, house and creating new sub-genres like “TrapStep” “PsyTrap” or “Drill”.

  Given the huge success the genre has had, many artists indie or signed are looking to purchase trap beats and if you’re a producer and are neglecting trap instrumentals, you are making a big mistake significantly reducing your online beat sales.
