More-on Aryan Rapper Fler


And Now...Aryan Rap

By Ulrich Boser

1/23/06

German rapper Fler wears finger-thick gold chains and big baggy jeans, but his rhetoric would have made Adolf Hitler proud. In his recent album, New German Wave, the blue-eyed, baby-faced rapper rhymes, "Black, red, gold, hard and proud .?.?. believe me, my mom is German." In the accompanying video, Fler struts through Berlin, while Aryan-looking thugs wave an enormous German flag and battle with swarthy immigrants.

Meet the Fatherland's new shock troops: German rappers scaling the pop charts with violent, nationalistic lyrics and building a fan base that includes legions of neo-Nazis. Fler's album, for instance, debuted at No.?5 within a week of its May release and is set to become certified gold.

The growing popularity of the genre threatens to energize a growing far-right movement here and has pushed the government to censor rap albums for their sadistic content. "[Rap lyrics] are becoming increasingly pornographic, violent, and racist," says parliamentarian Monika Griefahn. "We need to restrict it in order to protect our individual rights and our young people."






For years, German rap had been about as edgy as Neil Diamond with sweet boy-band lyrics about school and sports. A few years ago, one hip-hop group scored a hit singing about how cool their sweaters looked. But recently, German rappers like Fler, Bushido, and Sido have been emulating American gangsta-style hip-hop and writing lurid, offensive lyrics that glorify violence and crime. And in an effort to be truly provocative in a country where overt displays of nationalist fervor have long been taboo, some rappers have been openly flirting with fascism: In his recent bestselling album, Bushido rapped, "Salute, stand at attention, I'm the leader like A." That is seen as a reference to Adolf Hitler, though the rapper denies it.

To be sure, the far right will not invite the rappers to headline a rally anytime soon. Although many neo-Nazis praise the lyrics, they believe that rap strays far from the Aryan ideal because of its African-American roots. For their part, the rappers deny being extremists. "I think skinheads suck. I've gotten into fist fights with them," says Fler. "I don't want to put down other minorities. I'm just saying that I think it's cool to be German."

Dangerous words. But the music often goes well beyond simple declarations of pride--Fler advertised his new CD with a quote from Hitler: "On May 1st, we'll shoot back"--and that scares many here. "This might all be a way to sell records, but it promotes National Socialism," says antiextremist activist J?rn Menge. "Such a mix of patriotism and violence in music is very dangerous."After a recent public outcry, the government placed some of the more violent titles on a watch list. The designation requires more than an "explicit lyrics" sticker: If an album is censored, it can't be advertised or sold to anyone under 18.

Pyranja

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Pyranja (legal name Anja Käckenmeister; born 1978, Rostock) is a female German rapper.

Pyranja started rapping at the age of 16. Early supporters and precursors were the rap crews DSC and the Underdog Cru. After a yearlong stay in Boston she went back to Germany, more precisely to Berlin. Only in the capital of Germany a development of her skills and music was possible. She socialized in the scene very quickly and many contributions for other artists followed (see discography).

The label Def Jam Germany showed great interest in the upcoming rap artist and so she released her first single, called Im Kreis EP, in 2001. She even conquered the German charts without any promotion. When the production of her record Wurzeln & Flügel was already finished and the date of release was set, Def Jam broke up because of the difficult market situation.

Later Wurzeln & Flügel was released by another label called Dackel Enterprise. The sales figures of this record also surpassed all expectations and steadied her good reputation as "best female German rapper".

In 2004 Pyranja and her colleagues Joe Rilla, Dra-Q, Jamie White and Sera Finale founded the rap crew Ostblokk. Since they had known each other for a long time and had already used the same studios, this collaboration was a logical conclusion. The CD Einmal um Blokk was released and became very successful.

In 2004 Pyranja also released her CD Frauen & Technik by her own independent label Pyranja Records. This record turned out to be the most multifaced in her career. It does not only convince by her familiar calm and profound songs but also reflects the rough side of Pyranja. Using the pseudonym Christiane Latte for her tracks Ab 18 and Blondes Gift she performed as sassy as many of her male colleagues. The ironic dig at the male-dominated rap-branche was made with intent.

In 2006, the new single Nie wieder and the album Laut & Leise have been released. Furthermore she performed for her home state, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, at this year's Bundesvision Song Contest (hosted by Stefan Raab) and made eighth place. An extensive Germany tour with new and old songs will follow.

German Vegan Rapper

Germany's vegan version of Krondon: ALBINO




Albino is a German rapper who’s not only vegan himself, but also devotes his music to the topics of veganism and animal rights. Aside from the great lyrics he’s also quite talented and raps very fluently…I wonder why he’s not better known yet.

Another German rap act called Vegweiser, consisting of two young guys rapping about the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.

Check them out in a 20 years: They'll look and feel like toilet seats, like shit, like most vegans, like most ignorant people who think they can thrive without all those essential amizzle acids...and del.icio.us red meat.
