Sen Kumpë came together in the populous district of Medina, Senegal in the early nineties as rappers Bourba Djoloff and Baay Sen teamed up with producer Ama Diop to harness the power of political protest through music. Poverty, poor education, and unemployment created the social context for the spirit of these Senegalese rappers who, within the first 3 years of their debut, attracted the attention of other accomplished musicians and producers an participated in the “D-Kill Rap” compilation. “D-Kill Rap” turned out to be a historical amalgamation of the most controversial Senegalese rappers and, alongside the album “Rapadio”, signified the importance of rap as an emerging musical genre in Senegal. Sen Kumpë quickly grabbed a place in the movement as a force to be reckoned with.
