Antilopen Gang: rapping for German capital

spackengang

My polemic against the popular German hip-hop group Antilopen Gang was published in Melodie & Rhythmus 1/2015 this month.

Antilopen Gang pose as a ‘rebellious’ group of sorts. In reality, nothing could be more conformist than their ‘anti-German’ pseudo-leftism, which denounces the working class majority of the populace, as well as any resistance to capitalism, as antisemitic.

I conclude that Antilopen Gang represent a trait that has been typical of the German middle classes throughout modern history: kissing up and kicking down.

The article, entitled ‘Neoliberal subculture’, is accessible here [in German].
