“I am twenty six in fourth grade, the only one in this class with a beard”, those are the opening lines of the new hit song “Græða Peninginn” or make that money by Úlfur Emilio aka Góði Úlfurinn (The good wolf), who at nine is undoubtedly Iceland’s youngest rapper.

Speaking to Nútíminn, Úlfur said that his role models are Emmsjé Gauti and JóiPé and that his friends have received the songs positively.

“My friends listened to it today and they liked it and want to be in my next video,” said Úlfur. “The song is really just about making money and what I do after school.”

Making that money and visiting grandma

The song deals with the everyday reality facing a 9 year old living downtown, with lines such as : “Every day after school I go skating downtown, as I always bring it with me to school, roll down Laugavegur every day, go to grandma’s, eat a cake.”

The Grapevine wishes him luck with his rap career as well as with making that money.
