As the son of Turkish parents and guest workers, he is still where he grew up and where he feels home – Moabit. After almost 10 years of writing lyrics, Apsilon has been spending a lot of time in the studio for the past two years: German rap with anti-capitalist analysis without morally pointing fingers is the outcome.
Provocative social criticism without compromises against white German comfort and resignation. The delivery is pure rage, the sound is trappy and modern. New Wave. Apsilon casually spits basketball references alongside criticisms of racism, deftly stringing together German idioms while breaking them, dribbling the German language.
