There are many critics of German Rap, some of them going as far as to totally denounce it and call it merely 'Deutschsprachige Rap', attributing all the originality to the traditional Hip-hop as produced in the USA. However, not all Hip-hop made in German is just the same american hiphop in the german language. Some bands do have their distinct qualities and styles, that are different from the american stuff. I, however, do not make much distinction between 'Deutschsprachige Hiphop' or 'Deutsch Hiphop', because I enjoy both (as well as the traditional Hip-hop, gangsta rap etc.).
Dude, no idea's original, there's nothing new under the sun. Neither Nas nor American hip-hop is truly original ... the egg or the chicken?? Who gives a shit what came first!?
