Dread Skeezo - Ken dou dé

Dread Skeezo just released his solo album "Wanéél sa bop" in Senegal. This song is one of my favourits right now.

Some infos about Dread Skeezo: In 1999, senegalese hip-hop discovered for the first time Dread and Supreme of the Underground P.A through the D-Kill Rap compilation. With the track K.O, the audience was automatically seduced by Dread’s low and laid back voice as well as his bouncy flow. Not only were they new voices in the tough and competing hip-hop scene but they brought also a new vision of streetlife and a ghetto influenced dialect dued to the neighborhood they were from, Parcelles Assainies, one of the biggest suburbs of Dakar. With a constantly growing buzz, the P.A bred MC stricked another hit in 2002 in the Code B compilation called «Ku Khab bi Diot» (Who the cap fits), still with his right hand man Supreme. That track definitely confirmed Underground P.A and Dread as the next phenomenon of local rap scene. The first album of the group, «Nanguléén» (Accept It) was released in 2003 but contrarily to people’s expectations wasn’t a commercial success because of problems with their distributor that really affected the promotion. Nevertheless, on a artistic level, it is still one of the most creative albums in the history of senegalese hip-hop. That first disappointment surely lead to a slow down of their activities to the point there were rumors that the group split up. In november 2006, Dread’s solo album «Wanéél Sa Bop» (Manifest Ur Inner Self or Shine Ur Light) was released and shed light on their new option of seperate solo experiences before another group album. «Wanéél Sa Bop» was acclaimed by the hip-hop heads as a true mix of street knowledge and spiritual enlightenment. But still, there is a lot to discover in itthat will give this underrated MC the true respect he needs.
