Despite their energetic stage show they have made a positive effort to distance themselves from the infighting and rivalry that has become part of the French hip-hop scene in recent years. Their message, which is reinforced by their lyrics, promotes unity and cohesion amongst hip-hop lovers, encouraging them to focus on the factors that are common to all in the greater human struggle.

Their songs reflect the African heritage of the band’s two front men. The description of the meeting of these two cultures in the bands rapid fire hip-hop style yet smooth tones of the French language makes for a unique experience. The band haven’t forgotten either their French heritage, with a distinctly jazzy feel to their songs which incorporate a brass-section featuring trombone and saxophone.

The band first came to the attention of Chocolate Fireguard when they played alongside label mates Kava Kava at a festival in Switzerland.
