2 Bal is a French rap group formed at the end of the 1980s consisting of Landry and Frédéric Mahoukou, respectively Doc TMC and G-Kill. Of Congolese origin, and living in Chelles, they launched their career in 1989 (at the age of ten) under the name BB MC.

Biography[edit]

The two brothers began their rap career very early, and performed in their adolescence under the name BB Mc. They soon formed the Ménage à 3 collective with the 3 Coups, Gued'1, Krokmitten, Ad'Hoc-1 for whom Cut Killer dedicated a special mix-tape in 1996.

The same year, 2 Bal formed the company 2Neg', and released the album 3 X plus efficace which is considered Template:Non neutral ; this album was a commercial success, and the 2Bal/2Neg' group launched a national tour, a first for an independent group. An album was produced and directed by Tefa & Masta, now Kilomaitre Productions and White & Spirit who produced the soundtrack for the film Ma 6-T va crack-er, on which they appeared performing La sédition together with Mystik.

The two brothers later joined the Bisso Na Bisso collective, together with Ärsenik, Passi and Mystik and released the album Racines in 1999. However, DOC was imprisoned, and during this time, G-Kill increased his appearances and released his own Street CD in 2004, Naufragé du temps.

DOC was released from prison, and the group released the Street CD Mapassa which blended their appearances and lots of unreleased material.

Former members[edit]

2 Bal (at the time 2 Bal Niggets) began their history with the serious and minor rapper Krokmitten who was the founder of Ménage à 3. Krokmiten was associated with 2Bal for the first appearances of the group (Predator III sur Time Bomb, 3 fois plus efficace sur Hostile...) and for the album together with 2Nèg' (Eben, Niro and Kicklow) but left the group after this last recording. He was also important in mediating between the two groups with a strong personality and ego to iron out problems during the making of the album. Always active at MA3 and working with different groups, Krokmitten released a number of solo albums and actively participated in the release of a single Ménage à 3 album in 2002.
