Video of the Day: Samy Deluxe
German rappers often get (excuse the pun) a bad rap. Samy Deluxe is one of the better ones and even if you don’t speak German to appreciate his rhymes and references to literature’s greats, you can enjoy the type illustrations and animations in his latest video ‘Poesiealbum’.
‘Poesiealbum’ roughly translates as friendship book and is a cutesy thing German elementary school kids keep to remember their classmates and friends by. Samy uses it ironically to diss everyone not up to his speed and skill.
