Necessary Noize is Kenyan hip hop group originally composed of female MC/singer Nazizi Hirji, singer Kevin Wyre and rapper Bamzigi, though Bamzigi later left due to personal and label disputes. The group was formed in October 2000 and released their self-titled debut album in 2000 under Audio Vault Studios (now Blu Zebra), this contained the hits "Clang Clang," and "La Di Da.". They steadily grew in popularity and were later to release a second album "Necessary Noize II: Kenyan Gal, Kenyan Boy" in 2004 which included popular regional hits such as "Kenyan Gal, Kenyan Boy" and "Bless My Room". They won 2 categories in the 2004 Kisima Music Awards, Best Music Video (for Gal/Boy) and Best Ragga Group.

Although mainly hip hop based, the group also does some reggae and R&B tracks. They are appreciated for their socially conscious lyrics that deal with issues affecting youth such as AIDS, drugs and politics. They are seen as an antidote to the over-commercialization of urban music in Kenya. Together with Ugandan ragga musician Bebe Cool, they have released music under the name East African Reggae Bashment Crew. They also have collaborated with the Tanzanian hip hop group Gangwe Mobb with "Tunajirusha" hit.

Mizchif from Zimbabwe is a guest on the Necessary Noize debut album. Nazizi and Wyre also have done solo productions, before and during the existence of the group. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
