Hip Hop, Rap, and Spoken Word

While there is a huge scene of German rap, hip hop, and spoken word artists this list is comparatively tame. It can be difficult to find artists who do not use language or topics which can be considered ‘inappropriate’. Of course, this is also just another part of authentic and natural language use, in all of its forms.
A few clips carry language and content warnings as they are not appropriate for a general audience.
