Transculturation in German-Turkish Hip-Hop

Power Point by Katie Cinquini

Presentation by Brittney Teal-Cribbs



Throughout Europe, hybrid youth cultures continueto form and morph as global migration creates minority enclaves in urban areas. Music plays a large part in the transformation of this culture for Germany’s large Turkish population. Participation by both sides in the German hip-hop scene has created a type of transculturation in which aspects of both cultures are preserved. Hip-hop was first transformed in Germany by white artists whose lyrics more closely resembled traditional soft rock. Today, the immigrant populations have appropriated this uniquely German form of hip-hop to discuss deeper issues of race, poverty and violence that transcend racial stereotypes.

Incorporates four different languages

Microphone Mafia

  • Most of the chores in their songs are sung in English because it is a universal language. Also because it is their way of bringing the American population into their music.



Lyrics can and are a very influential part of music.

Microphone mafia uses their lyrics to ‘stay in touch with their culture and heritage’. Unlike other groups they don’t typically have specific political messages in their music, but some lyrics could be thought of that way.

F reundeskreis





The group politicized hip-hop in the German culture using their lyrics to promote the Americanization of their music.

“With their first single "Leg deinOhr auf die Schiene der Geschichte" in 1997, they proved that Germans could be amenable to embracing hip hop music that takes on political themes. Freundeskreis is known for promoting a spirit of international cooperation and respect for differences not only in their lyrics but also in their musical compositions.”


Turkish is their main language.


This is Cartel’s way of excluding German audiences. They gear their music to the Turkish population that lives in Germany.
