Stream episodes

A Red Bull Radio Podcast

Deutschrap 25 looks back on 25 years of German rap history. As part of the Red Bull Soundclash 2017, the podcast draws on the idea of the event. Two generations of German hip hop facing each other – oldschool vs newschool.

Deutschrap 25 is bridging the gap between these two generations and explores the evolution of the genre. In 25 episodes, Visa Vie and Jan Wehn come together to talk about 25 years and 25 songs of rap history. Two hosts with two different point of views and experiences discuss each song’s impact and talk about their own emotions, experiences and encounters with the most relevant artists of Deutschrap.

Leading up to the event, the 25 episodes were published each weekday for five weeks.
