Mc Wang jok

Born 7th-oct-1989 real name Ivan Rubangakene Ochaya. He grew up in Gulu town (G town

Northern Uganda). In 1998 At the age of nine he got inspired by rap music he used to listen to

from his father’s boom box at that time because his step brother who was older by then would

buy audio tapes of different genres of music. From his brother’s collection he chose wutang, lost

boys, Outlaws, etc because he had some taste in particular for rap.

He started writing pieces of his own that he compared to the kind of music he loved and would

perform them at karaoke’s and battles. In 2005 Mc Wang Jok together with 2 other rappers

created a rap crew called BNM consisting of Blackpool, Nicshawn and Money I (Present day Mc

Wang Jok). BNM Crew in late 2005 recorded a single titled “Party” at 2Kleen Records G town.

This song had a lot of air plays in key radios in G town at that time. It wasn’t easy because all the

rappers were still at High school level by then so the group didn’t record anything else as BNM

until the group was later dissolved.

Blacks Movement. Underground meaning underneath, hidden or not mainstream and Blacks

meaning Africans. This group was very distinctive and influential to hip hop and rap in Gulu town

Jok as Money) all from the same Neighbourhood of SQ (Senior Quarters) Laroo Division, Gulu.

late Lumix in 2008 from Valley Curve Studios. Hustle still one of the greatest hiphop songs of all

time in G town made this group very famous to rap lovers.
