Pee Froiss is a hip hop group formed in Dakar, Senegal in 1993. It was originally produced by another hip hop group from that city, Positive Black Soul, and since recorded with the duo.[1] The band's music is rapped in Wolof, French, and English and features traditional Senegalese instruments such as the kora as part of its instrumentation.[2] Pee Froiss was one of the first rap groups to include a female performer in their lineup, Sista Joyce.[3] The group's members create all of their own music videos with very sparse resources, the first of which was released in 1996 with their first album.[4]

Though the group released six successful cassette albums solely in Senegal and appeared on several European compilations,[5] the group's first release to be sold internationally was 2003's Konkérants.[6]
