Captain Gips, 'Hug Life'
Good morning. Time for some good tunes.
Zee German has introduced me to a lot German hip-hop. Though I was ignorantly skeptical at first, wanting to dismiss it as imitative, I’ve discovered that it is very good stuff. Though I shamefully cannot understand the lyrics (which are fascinatingly harmonious), much of what Zee German sends me is lively, entertaining, and imaginative. The stuff he likes is often very critical and satiric. (Satirical hip-hop seems to be a genre in itself in Germany.) Recently, he sent me a song by Captain Gips and I stumbled onto “Hug Life,” a fun spoof on “thug life” toughness, in the related links.
