Hip-hop/rap is considered the largest and most important youth culture. In particular, the development of German-language gangsta rap from the 2000s onwards was accompanied by scandalizing reporting on the often violence-laden language and aesthetics. For the last ten years or so, anti-Semitic content has also been found in songs and music videos of German-language rap. We discuss this with political scientist Jakob Baier and rapper and activist Ben Salomo.
