2 BE MUSIK is a Senegalese hip hop (rap) music label that brings together producers and beat-makers; it was established on February 10, 2007 in Dakar by Sidy TALLA (aka "Diss-crimination" or "Disstyle"), Bamba DRAMÉ (aka "Afro"). "2 Be" derive from "dë bë daxé" which is a Wolof expression that literally translates as DIY. Self-taught and passionate about urban music, 2 Be MUSIK leaders aimed at actively contributing to the development of the industry in Senegal by setting up the company. Indeed, not only this group of friends made up of young people spontaneously started producing "DIY" music, their music conveys meaningful messages through the sounds, melodies and rhythms they use to live and share their passion for rap. Furthermore, these three principles underlie the label's philosophy: courage, patience and humility. 2 BE MUSIK integrates the contradictions and dualities that punctuate life: positive vs negative, good vs the evil and wealth vs poverty. Indeed, according to the label's initiators, it is in the midst of these contradictions and dualities that anyone can discover their strengths and weaknesses. By doing so, one can easily find their way forward and evolve positively. It is with this mindset that this group of young beat-makers and producers have been making their way for over 10 years now. The label has its own recording studio located in Ouest Foire. 2 BE MUSIK is a label surfing on the wave of a movement that pushes for change through sound and music revolution.
