“We’re just another bunch of apes, locked ourselves in a cage, settled in and let it flow.”

Munich & Mainz-based Weltuntergäng-Crew deliver this basement-styled, boombap-flavored rhyme session on Tieftonkultur, to show that German rap is very much alive. Grasime + Kram aus der Ecke push this two-track EP (plus instrumentals) that could be mistaken for just another bunch of juvenile apes pissing in a cage. Well it’s certainly that. But it’s also quite simply a rare brand of well-produced, sample-induced hiphop, banging basslines on the underground with battle-worthy raps on top. If you sprechen Deutsch or not, just nod your head and go ‘Yeah, baby, ich mag es raaaw!’
