I realise most of you don't care about this at all, but my friend asked me for some examples of Scandinavian hip hop, and so I'm throwing together an entry about it.

Norwegian ones :

Swedish ones:

fattaru is awesome! gonna have to d/l them...why are there no finnish ones? aren't they considered scandinavian also?

Fjärde världen is even more awesome

True :O
Finn music = awesome..

Finland is "Nordic", but not Scandinavian I think. But actually the white guy on Fjärde världen is a guy with Finnish background. You can see some Finnish subtitles when he is rapping.

What I've heard of Finnish rap is not very good though...

It's not all terribly bad, just...erm...sounds disturbingly weird.

Erm :P

wow i really like it, the guy is hot...if i didnt know it was finnish i would've guessed some slavic language, the 'l's' make it sounds slavic

i think it can be used semi-interchangeably...anywho well that sux that it isn't good, i think that i'm the only person in el paso that likes stuff like sido, and indochine, and kent...etc

I <3 when people post music I don't know :)
(& I love the sound of swedish for some reason?)

Is the beginning of the 4th vid subtitled in Suomi or am I imagining things? :s

Yeah I love Swedish too. I lived there for a couple of years before coming to Paris, so I speak it fluently :)

You're right. They're paying homage to their immigrant background I guess.
