Mc Lida, one of the people who started out rap in Senegal in the mid-eighties, was first heard on tape on his 'Douma doyal mukk', one of the early Senegalese rap releases. Then he did a song with Omar Pene's group Super Diamono - in a mbalakh-ragga-ish song that erupted into a rap. Then MC Lida travelled to Italy and came up with his 2nd album in 1998. Production was done by some Italian producers - he even got part of the raps in Italian! Lida is one mc who apparently doesn't care to sound like the average Dakar mc - and why would he? He has more flow than most and you can hear that he's been in hip hop for long. old school: MC Lida, Kool n King, PBS, Oumson, Daara J, Pee Froiss, African Yefu, Slam Revolution, Sunu Flavor, Doomu Djoloff, Kantiolis, Black Diaspora, Kocc Barma, Nul te Rapadio, BMG, VIB, Guestu Guestu.
