Biography:

2RAM was founded in 1994 by twins’ brothers Raodoc & Marodoc. At age 10, while in primary school, teachers used to complain about Marodoc & Raodoc drawing and writing songs and comic strips while having lectures in class. The twins’ brothers were then born to become artists, and they finally teamed up in 1994 as 2RAM.
In 1995, they started performing as rappers and choreographers during different high schools’ shows. Their first single “la réalité De la Vérité” was released in late 1995. Another single “N’outrage plus ma Race” was released in 1996.
In 1996, Amine a close friend of the twins joined the group as a singer, and the group as a trio has released many singles. They performed during many shows and were famous among college and high school students in Benin Republic.
In 1998, after winning a competition for best Lyrics and Music on the National Radio of Benin, the group was managed by Athanase Gueli, the best radio host to promote Hip Hop Music on the National Radio. 2RAM also co-hosted the Hip Hop show with Mr. Gueli for a year.
A single “Ile Aye Le” was released in 2000; it helped the group to become more famous. In 2001, because of their fluent , Intellectual, poetic, and special flow and music, 2RAM was the first Hip Hop group to win the national contest of music organized by Benin Association of Artists and the Agency of Environmental Protection. A compilation and a video were released for this occasion.
In 2002, Amine left the group, and the twins brothers retreated from scenes to focus on school. Both twins studied engineering, business and management in Benin National University and USA. In early 2006, after 2RAM finished recording its first album “Africa Unity”, Raodoc definitely moved to USA, and the launch of the album was delayed. It was finally released in November 2009 under their label “Ile Ife Music”. This album has put the group among the best, classical, and intellectual world music in Benin and in Africa. The album was primarily focused on Africa, unity, change, freedom, peace, love, evolution and success.
With Raodoc living in USA and Marodoc in Benin, 2RAM has another vision of their music. They are producing a new album with more international vision. Like all previous music or singles, this masterpiece is being entirely produced by the group itself. This is just a proof of the genius of the twins who possess an unbelievable talent of songs writer, beats and music producer, choreographer, rapper, thinker, and poet. Speaking of Art, the upcoming album of 2RAM is their book of extraordinary music, rhymes, lyrics, thoughts and poems about the world, life, humanity, Love, and much more.

2RAM - Biographie Part 1

“2RAM a connu les scènes rappologiques et les péripéties de la vieille époque où le RAP n’était pas considéré au Bénin, mais cela n’a pas empêché le groupe d’être lauréat à un concours national de musique en 2001, parrainé par Oscar KIDJO. En 2009, après un long silence pour des années d’étude universitaire, RAODOC et MARODOC reviennent sur la scène du RAP pour continuer leur mission avec un nouvel album "AFRICA UNITY" réalisé au Bénin et aux États-Unis sous leur label "ILE IFE MUSIC". Actuellement, les frères jumeaux travaillent sur un nouvel album avec une vision plus internationale.”

“If through science and conscience of scientists, we were able to save the world, why cannot we change and unite the world through music and awareness of artists who are listened and loved more than politicians. Si par la science et la conscience des scientifiques on a pu sauver le monde, pourquoi ne pourrons-ns donc pas changer et unir le monde par la musique et la conscience des Artistes qui sont les plus écoutes et les plus aimes par le peuple que les hommes politiques. (Raodoc)”

Raodoc - Objective

“Ca me fait mal au cœur, et je pleure. Quand je n’ai pas le choix et j’ai peur. Ca me fait mal au cœur, Quand je vois la façon dont les hommes détruisent la nature, notre mère et notre sœur. J’essaie d’aider avec mes pensées, mon travail, et ma voix en pleine sueur. Je me demande comment ils prétendent être bons et utiles en tuant et en détruisant. Oh Dieu, ceci me confond et me rend malade permanemment. Je souhaite ne pas appartenir à ce monde de sales mécréants. Ils ne se soucient pas de la Nature, ils ne se soucient pas de l’humanité. Tout ce qui les préoccupe, c’est l’argent et la cruauté. Oh qu’ils sont insensibles. Oh Dieu, Aide-moi car je voudrais aider ma mère. Oh Dieu, Aide-moi car je ne veux que faire du bien pour elle. La demoiselle qui détient le miel. La demoiselle, pauvre et innocente victime de sa richesse. Oh Dieu, il faut que quelqu’un l’aide. J’ai la volonté et j’ai le cœur pour elle.”
Raodoc - Ca me fait mal au cœur

“ No Human lights can't make the light of days like the Sun does. No demons'power can't make the night longer to stop the light of the Sun from making the days. the truth is universal and necessary for the well being of humanity. The world is going bad, injustice is getting internationally legalized. no more talk for reason but for power, war money and weapon. Nowaday, we can really see imperialism's face everywere. They ain't care about nature ad Humanity. All they care about is money, ciminality,and insanity. there ain't hiding anymore. The oppressed people really need some news prophets or saviors for change and freedom. Who then can that be? We need to work together to save the world. We ain't prophets, but let's trynna do like them to make the world a better place to stay. If the holy books are words; then, With words we can change the world.(byRaodoc)”

“Imagine waking up one day without being able to see anymore the ones you love like your mom, your dad, your kids, or your soul mate because they have been killed during a civil war or a fight between two nations. Imagine walking in a street or driving on your way home with fear because you might get killed or hurt by a bomb or someone who is seeking for revenge. Make a picture of yourself in a country where there is no hope and future for you and your kids because of war. On TV like on news, at least every one of us has seen the horrors and miseries of war. Some may also have dealt with it before. Peace in the society and peace of mind are the main sources of living a good and successful life anywhere in the world, and when we miss them, the life becomes a hell. Nobody likes its life to be a hell like burning fire. For the best we better always make the best choice which is peace no matter the situation we deal with.”
Raodoc - Peace, the Best Choice
