The infamous old hand band from Sweden has never been your average rap group. In the past (almost) two decades they constantly proved that they are all about living for the music paired with a distinct political conscious about local as well as worldwide issues.
On their 6th album "Naked Swedes", that will be released this October on Jakarta Records, Cosmic, Supreme, Embee and Promoe go in on current topics like the horrible and racist treatment of refugees by the European Union and international weapon trade as well as reflections on the past 16 years of working together and life in general: The mistakes made and the lessons learned. Their conclusion? No regrets.
"What a beautiful mistake, cus i would do the same one today //
with all the high and lows, i'd never want it different"
