Local stories

Many urban performers have a strong bond with their neighbourhood, they grew up there, often still live there and find inspiration for their music. We asked a number of rappers from Rotterdam to tell their story behind their raps, about the neighbourhood, seen from a rooftop in their neighbourhood. And we asked them to rap, of course.

From mid-June on, every week, we will publish a video of a rapper, his rap and the story behind the rap, from a rooftop. All from different parts of the city: Rotterdam South, East, North and West.
