Bad Habits From Norway

The title might be misleading since we’re writing about a rapper group from Bergen in Norway named Dårlig Vane (Bad Habits, translated into English). Bad Habits from Norway had its breakthrough in 2016 with the EP “71”.

The hip hop trio Dårlig vane was formed in 2012 by Lars “Kikkan” Holme from Loddefjord outside Bergen and Martin “Lazy” Valding from Olsvik. In 2014, the duo expanded with Amadou Jobarth from Olsvik.
