German hip-hop magazine No. 2 in June/July

Backspin number 95 profiles Lueneburg-born Daim "The Professional", gives love to Jonesmann's new album "Echte Musik" ("Real Musc") and his new label -- other editorials cover NY MC Scram "Hype" Jones (Discovered Saigon?), Oldschool B-boy Shabba-Doo ( (Movie "Breakin"), and German rap act Smer, straight outta Cologne. Furthermore: Roger, MTV HipHop Open, Die Orsons, Sepalot and DOA21.

Summer 2008, and Juice magazine, Germany's number one hip-hop publication, does it offline only ... still -- you can just purchase subscriptions at Juice.de -- Interesting strategy! Must be the last major music magazine without a proper web presence.

Deutschrap and Euro 2008

Ain't related? Think again. There's a YouTube playlist called "2008 UEFA Euro 2008", and the original idea is to have one WAG or geile bitch from every single country that participates and kick off a Euro 2008 Lesbian Orgy hip-hop video for each single country that participates in the UEFA Euro 2008 co-hosted by Austria and Switzerland.
The 16 countries are: Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Portugal, Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, Czech Republic, Croatia, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Romania, Netherlands, and Germany:

Olli Banjo - "Deutschland"

Then there is that Lichtgestalt who goes by the name of J-Klinsmann. He's currently one of the biggest promoters of German hip-hop. Germany's Fussballer-der-Herzen-Maker emailed his former fairy tale pals a special attachment: The inspiring "Euro 2008 Rap" called "Nummer 4".

Although we all know who's NOT going to win the Euro 2008 (i.e. Germany) Klinsmann's endorsement should make Deutschrap, or at least the rap group Kunstrasen, even more populaer. The mainstream media's picked up on this (because it's a slow news week -- who cares about the Bilderberger meeting!) so chances are: Kunstrasen's Nummer 4 could be Germany's corny Euro 2008 pre-game locker room theme song: "Attention Europe: Football ain't no poker, the best one gets the pot, and who's gonna be it is clear: Germany!" Like Xavier said: "Dieser Weg wird kein leichter erfolgreicher sein!"

We love Deutschrap (标签 – 歌曲) , but the corny German football propaganada machine ... not!

You Lionazzi?

Hot 97 radio host Miss Jones, famous for her ribald morning show, once again makes news for offensive racist slurs. Earlier [last month], Miss Jones interviewed the German rapper Lionezz, ostensibly to poke fun at her for being cut from VH1's Miss Rap Supreme. Unfortunately, the tone quickly descended from jokey to racist, as Miss Jones compared Lionezz to the Nazis!

At first, Lionezz rhymed and Miss Jones and her studio mates began cracking jokes. Lionezz has been in the business for almost ten years and is no stranger to criticism. However, these comments were not about skills, they were straight up personal, so Lionezz responded with insults in German. This was apparently too much for the high and mighty Hot 97 staff, so they cut off Lionezz's mic and began slinging racist slurs like "Heil Hitler!" "Shine my boots!" and "Mein Reich siegt!" (Victory to my Reich!).

Lionezz may be German, but she is of Armenian immigrant origin and grew up suffering abuse from the real ethnocentric Neo-Nazis. How ludicrous that Lionezz would cross the ocean to be compared to her enemies by an ignorant American!

Beyond Lionezz, Miss Jones showed her complete disregard for the millions of victims of the Nazi regime, who suffered true political persecution and do not deserve to be cheapened by a music shock jock. Miss Jones has exercised similarly bad judgment in the past, when she was suspended in 2005 for racist comments against Asians after the Tsunami crisis. Miss Jones is supposed to be part of a multicultural art form, but once again, she has abused her platform by spewing racist vitriol, and deserves to be held accountable.

If you read the whole article on SOHH.com you'll realize that all of this boils down to:

German rappers must not drop English bars!!
