How German Rap is Subtly Promoting Gun ViolenceMarch 4, 2019
Location :Devendar’s Cafe Lohajung
Background Music : Pink Flyod or Janis Joplin
Claudia: You have really good taste in it. In Switzerland, I work with plenty of kids who listen to German rap.
Me: I like certain rap songs too
Her: I don’t think you understand me, the German rap songs have these filthy abuses. They are absolutely derogatory and objectifying women. But what’s worst their constant promotion of gun violence.
Claudia translates what’s the singer was promoting. & What I found online of the song’s Translation :
I went off to sleep in prison and I dreamt of money
One album later I wake up in a new CL
What happend? (what?) Yes, I got some penalties
One could say: Fuck with me, you have the street in you (hahahaha)
I am hallucinating (wooh)
So tell me, why should I argue? (why?)
They say: "Gzuz, never loose the thread" (haha)
But I don't even act like I care about it (no)
I used to buy the papers one by one (ohh)
Rolling up fifty-fifty trash blands (büah)
Could not afford anything better (ne)
Today I'm making paper, have my own from now on
Need some stacks, but I throw up into the bank (brüah)
Because I've drank too much vodka again (hahaha)
We come out of the backstage and they stare at us
Because we never leave the room without a "Frost" on the wall (wooh)
Our reactions :
Woah. These women are being exploited and shown as sex items. They showed people, in mafias as the “in” thing and gun as cool. Big flashy cars and gold chains, lose waisted pants. It honestly corrupts the mind of kids.
By the end of the discussing, we were back to listen to the music of the ’80s which had meaning.
