The Norwegian rap-duo Karpe Diem consists of Magdi Omar Ytreeide Abdelmaguid (aka Megdi) and Chirag Rashmikant Patel (aka Chicosepoy or Chico). Magdi is half egyptian and half norwegian, while Chirag is all indian. |
Karpe Diem was established when the two, then young boys wanted to enter a music competition (UKM [Ungdommens Kulturmønstring]), which they ended up winning with the song “Hvor er Willy?” and have been rapping together ever since.
Their first release was a six-track long EP; Glasskår EP released in 2004, and they released a full-length album in June, 2006; Rett Fra Hjertet. And another one in fall 2008; Fire Vegger
They have performed live at more than 200 shows and the number is just growing. Karpe Diem is notorious for their sarcastic and politically engaged lyrics, and for their down-to-earth and nobel personalities. |
