Bent – Rottweilerhundur


Published January 12, 2007

Back in 2001, XXX Rottweilerhundar changed (or maybe created) Icelandic rap. One of their members, Bent, is now back with a solo album. Internationally, rap is for the most part in a sorry state. Endless rhymes about bitches and guns, Escalades and expensive champagne. Bent’s album is free of this. He rhymes about his personal life (alcoholism) and the society (capitalistic injustice apparent in the number of Escalades on Reykjavík streets). The beats flow nicely and Bent is a great rapper. It is an album that brings hope to Icelandic hip-hop and rap, a well-crafted CD that is highly enjoyable. Intelligent and good rap. I am into that and so should you be.
