And now they even start to rap - SVP election campaign...

A 21yr old SVP candidate for the cantonal parliament of Lucerne is promoting his political skills in his rap video: "our country in Swiss hands"



http://www.20min.ch/news/zentralschweiz/story/27880862

I would normally write some rant about the SVP here, but this video is so bad that I just cannot add anything to make it worse... the up-side of democracy is still that peole get the type of politicians the majority deserves.

Let's face it, people rapping in German (or Swiss German) is just wrong on so many levels.

Re: And now they even start to rap - SVP election campaign...

In 2010 I thought that nothing could possibly be more embarrassing than the captain of your national team rapping your national anthem while wearing some "pimp inspired" outfit...




But the SVP rap has even more trash factor and was surely actually taken seriously by the guys who did it...

Well, not much seems to be peinlich for many of the English I met upt to now... so I am not surprised there is not really a term for it

This post is wrong on so many levels.

There some really good german rap/hiphop acts* - just because you don't know about them doesn't mean they don't exist.


*fyi: Fantastischen 4, Fettes Brot, Seed, Dynamite Deluxe, Beginner,...

There is great stuff in many languages... and I actually think that French and Spanish are liguistically better for raps (if every second word ends on "-es" or "-os" it should be easier to rhyme, no )

Some of my current favourites:





Most important thing for me is that it comes accross as "real music" and not some kid copying MTV.... which is pretty exactly what that poor SVP candidate is... I wonder what the SVP rapper things about Graffiti.

SVP has a long history with swiss-rap community. In the Romandie, Stress has made the headlines with his " fooock Blocher" song

Re: And now they even start to rap - SVP election campaign...

I think this anti-Blocher song by Stress is pretty cool (use expatshield or proxy server because unfortunately youtube blocks it for CH)



Great lyrics (my free translation of a few lines):

My Switzerland thinks to the future, change, and openness
She thinks of Europe, culture, and not just hard cash
She doesn't make a drama of naturalisation
even more so as we had participated in her construction
