Barikad Crew is a Rap Kreyòl (Haitian hip-hop) group from Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

On 15 June 2008, 3 members of the group (K-tafalk, Deja-Voo, Dade) died in a car accident while they were on their way to a concert in Haiti.[1][2] Less than 2 years later, another member, Young Cliff died in the January 2010 Earthquake.[3]

History[edit]

The group is from Rue Nicolas in Port-au-Prince, and was founded in 2002 by Papa K-tafalk, Deja-Voo and Kondagana. Their primary focus was to produce music that reflects the lifestyle of the slums. The trio invited several other rappers from other underground groups to join.

Their first single was a carnival song "Projè Project" released in 2003. In the beginning of 2004, Barikad Crew released "Bay Hiphop Bourad" together with a video filmed in their neighborhood park. Their second single, "Kijan'l Te Ye", was released in January 2005.

The group rose to fame at the end of 2005 when they won 3rd place at the popular TV's Christmas songs contest, "Konkou Chante Nwel", on Telemax with the song "Nwel Pa'm".

At the beginning of 2006, Barikad Crew released their carnival hit song called "Trip N'ap Trip".

Their debut album is called Goumen Pou Sa W Kwè, and was released in November 2007. At the time of the album release, the group's members were: Bricks, Brital, Dade, Deja-voo, Fantom, Izolan, Kondagana, Marco, Master Sun, Papa K-tafalk and Young Cliff.

In 2015, Fantom came into contact with a high-voltage power line during a Mardi Gras parade. At least 16 people were killed in the ensuing stampede.[4]
