Kanye is gonna love this shit!

He'll be mentioning this on his blog by the end of next week. Watch.

This fella's name is Adam Tensta, and he is one of the freshest and illest rappers on the planet.

And he's from Sweden! Though he raps in English.

Tensta's beats are dope as shiz and he's rhyming about things other than the cliches in American hip hop: hos and cash.

    208

    No, really, this guy SUCKS, his flow is typical, and the beats are the same old synth crap you hear everywhere now (Lord Finesse, Eric B., Premier, I miss you guys), although he is catchy and cliche enough for european airplay. And I quite enjoy all the Swedish hip hop "experts". Some people (from NYC, and of a certain age) actually grew up with this music, and might have a frame of reference to judge it. As far as people listening to ten year old tracks, as i believe tensta referenced in his post here, that is for the simple reason that hip hop, in general, is in a state of decay. Let me hear an MC better that Rakim and we can talk about new hip hop, although some of the newer stuff is good as well (Sean Price, MF Doom, Immortal Technique, Necro, Percee P, Madlib, Jeru's new album), as long as you don't get your listening cues from the radio stations or, for that matter, perezhilton.com.

    Also, Europe, your "ghetto's" are not hard.
    I know. I've seen them.
    Stop pretending.
    Please.

    213

    i agree with #99…like the other day when you commented on "lights flashin" (sic) i thought it was pretty obvi that you should leave ALL references to hip-hop, rap, kanye, and the words fresh/dope/ill out of your vocab. RAP talks about "hos and cash", not hip-hop. stick to britney and her "music", por favor.

    216

    Don´t compare Adam Tensta with a fake ass wanna be bad ass Kayne fuckin West. Adam Tensta is not a fake ass superstar tryin fuck everyone around him. Adam Tensta is Hip-Hop, Kayne West is just a nerd who took a left turn when he was supposed to go forward!!!

    241

    Adam you're the man! I just want to make a short notice: The population of Sweden is 9 million people. Not too many people, but still: one million people in Sweden are immigrants from all over the world. So to all of you who thought that we don't have black people in Sweden: man…shit you need to get yourself an education and start to read about the rest of the world before you make a such stupid comment as: There's no black people in Sweden.

    Peace,! Och till alla Svenskar: vi äger, vi är inte bara vackrast och bäst: vi är överlägset snyggast också! :)

    this dude went in my class for three years in elementary school, and his music is great! hoping for succes, he deserves it. this is the first rapper in sweden who has his own style, the others sucks.

  44. anna says – reply to this


    244

    Very interesting that "ya'l" yanks think that perez "discovered" Adam Tensta, while in fact Adam has been famous in Northern Europe ( Scandinavia and other European countries ) for quite some while now.

    Typical Americans..,

  45. Hopf says – reply to this


    245

    "My cool" is nice, but "They wanna know" is better… that´s one helluva streetbanger!

    246

    i would prefer if he did it in his native language. i love to listen to french & german hip-hop.. it's unique & some of these guys are really good.

  47. Semla says – reply to this


    247

    Re: benny blanco from the bronx – What, you mean you've been on a european tour of all ghettos ion the continent? Please. I've been in the Bronx, many french ghettos are harder. BESIDES, many of us in europe also grew up with hip-hop, this music has been around here for just as long as in the US. I've been listening to both american and european hip-hop since 1979 for example, you've probably only heard american stuff so stop pretending like you're some sort of an expert just because you're from the Bronx.
    That said: True, Adam Tensta sucks. Haha!

  48. shitman its my cool says – reply to this


    248

    Im from sweden and my cool is good 1-2 times and then its just annoying, but shit im happy for tensta that perez dropt his name!!!

  49. Fatima says – reply to this


    249

    Well he's originally from Gambia where the national language (besides Wolof) is ENGLISH, thanks to bloody colonialist Brits.
    So there's really nothing strange about him rapping in English. People speak other languages than Swedish in Sweden!
    Oh btw, WOLOF POWER!

    250

    SWEDEN ROCK! SWEDEN RULES. The music from this country is good, in any genre. Open your eyes. Tired of American music. Time for a chance. Sweden has always produced good music. Artist like: Abba, Roxette, Europe, Ace of Base, The Cardigans, The sounds, The Hives, Mando Diao, Meja, Eagle-Eye Cherry, Josè Gonzàlez, Robyn, E-Type, Candlemass, In Flames, Hammerfall and many more.

    251

    Re: Semla – You're right, I have no idea what I am talking about. No, I have not been on a ghetto tour of Europe, but I have traveled around a lot more than even most Europeans, and I agree, France certainly owns some shitholes, but let's not kid ourselves, Europe is just NICER than the States. And I wasn't even thinking about the Bronx, I was thinking more Baltimore and Chicago. And I primarily DO listen to American hip hop, because, well, it's better.
    That Roots Manuva though. He's pretty good.

    WHats up with u and the swedes perez? robyn has been famous in sweden since she was 16. she had a huge pop-hit (soundes sort of like nsync, nackstreetsboy 90's) and then about 10 years later you mention her and shes big in the us and has a single with snoop dogg!!???

    254

    i was in europe last summer. only had a few days in sweden but DAMN! That country rocks. its not a myth about the hot swedish blondes like Victoria Silvstedt. EVERYWHERE you look in stockholm theres gorgeous woman! And the music they make over ther is not bad either:
    This guy Adam Tensta youre talkning about, Abba, Roxette, Europe, Ace of Base, The Cardigans, The sounds, The Hives, Robyn, Mando Diao, Meja, Eagle-Eye Cherry 50% of Razorlight, The Ark… the list goes on. PLUS All the really big american pop songs are done by swedish producers and songwriters: all the backstreet boys albums, many nsync songs, madonna songs, almost all the britney spears hits (from the "baby one more time" days to the new "gimme more" stuff. SWEDEN ROCKS! I REALLY WANT TO GO BACK!

    a lil note, Adam Tensta just recently won a grammy in the swedish grammy awards. his new album is somethin out of the ordinary comin from an english rappin swede. on the other hand, w8 for looptroop's upcomin album later this spring! after playin a few shows on the us west coast in september 2007 including roxy theatre in LA ull wanna hear what they can do. WARNING! theyre material is very political n up to date so it'll probably have somethin to do with the US prez election.

    Adam and Lazee is cool wiv eachother, how come FANS of Lazee's music is on here hatin as if they competin over shit? Yall just doin your "boy" bad. It's stupid to think your imaginary little beef would do ANYBODY good in a little country as Sweden. Cut that shit off!!!!!!

    Re: Bam Marwurra – Men skärp dig! Har du kollat för mycket på MTV på sistone? Försöker du låta "ghetto" genom att strunta i att skriva grammatiskt korrekt och bara använda stereotypiska uttryck? Ush vad falskt. Ännu värre: vad cliché! SLUTA SKRIVA SOM EN DÅRE NU är du snäll.
    Hur svårt är det att använda plural form och avsluta ord med rätt bokstav?? Det heter "ARE cool" och "WITH each other", "ARE here hatinG" med G, och "YOU ARE ALL doinG" osv.

    Yo Perez stick to what gays do best. GOSSIP. CHromeo's been hot for at least two yrs and now you think this dude is the next big thing in hip hop. Your trippin! Maybe you been hitting that weed Joss Stone is smoking.

  75. Sed says – reply to this


    275

    This dude is not one of the hotter rappers from sweden, he´s only getting attention because his "hiphop" is harmless and catchy and works well on the upper class´s dancefloors. The song that really got him his initial attention, "bangin on the system", is still the hottest track (hip hop) ever produced in sweden (not thanks to Adam but rather Eboi, his hypeman who out shines Adam on every track and performance, and the Dj), but he totally sold out after the labels noticed him and started making retarded disco tracks instead of the politically concious and radical music we hoped he would be doing. Check out Lazee instead, he can actually RAP and don´t need the DJ to chop his rhymes to camoflage how wack the lyrics are.

  76. AKA says – reply to this

    SWEDISH HIP HOP IS REALLY GOOD. Not this though. He´s english is not that good and I didnt like his voice. NOT GOOD RHYMES!!! BEt he aint good at all fresstylin'.

    277

    That was really fresh. It is nice to hear something new. I love rap, r&b and hip hop, but I am tired of all the money and coochie songs out there. Tu-Pac sang about raunchy stuff but a least he experienced it for himself. Half these rappers out there haven't experienced half of what they sing about. Music comes from your soul.

    Re: Hiphoptothefullest – Sorry but you're wrong about this. Tensta is a "miljonprogram" public housing area for low-income families, so projects it is per definition. Anneka's use of the term is totally adequate.
