Neue Bands für das Roskilde festival 2012:
WIZ KHALIFA has broken through big time with “Black and Yellow”, which has been a huge hit on the radio. With this festive and poppy tribute to his local NFL team, Wiz Khalifa went straight for the mainstream heart of the wide audience and gave both Drake and Lil Wayne a fight for their money about being the young generation’s biggest hip hop hero. Now the popular, tattooed rapper is ready to capture Roskilde Festival’s bulging heart with one of his energetic and hard-working shows.
ROYCE DA 5’9” has shared the stage with Eminem in the duo Bad Meets Evil, worked as ghost writer for Dr. Dre and is part of the super group Slaughterhouse. Yet, Royce Da 5’9” has only made a name for himself in narrow circles. With the comeback album Success Is Certain he stages the big breakthrough. Here the experienced rapper authoritatively puts his skills as an MC on display – he continues his master class at Roskilde Festival.
YELAWOLF is a skinny country boy brought up on Lynyrd Skynyrd, but with an aggressive and virtuous rap style. He is signed to Eminem’s Shady Records, and comparisons with this pioneer are inevitable. But make no mistake of Yelawolf. His music reeks of petrol, crunk, dope and white trash attitude, so you know it is made by a genuine Dixie. Despite some occasional, chart-appealing sounds on the new long player Radioactive, Dirty South atmosphere is practically a guarantee when the fierce rapper guests Roskilde.
