La Fossa is one of the earlier rap groups from Italy and one of the first from the island of Sardinia.[1] They formed in 1996. Unlike fellow Sardinian rap group Sa Razza, La Fossa usually does not rap in Sardinian, and uses primarily Italian lyrics. Their first full-length CD was nevertheless called Around the Rionez, riones (usually spelled with s) being a Sardinian term for neighbourhood. Some of their main influences are rappers like Kid Frost, N.W.A, and Master P.
