MOORDENAAR


Osdorp Posse from Amsterdam was the first rap group to ever rap in Dutch. They started out in 1989 and put out their debut album in 1992. Back then, if you spoke dutch and you were cool, you had that shit. If you caught me walking down the street with my walkman in 1993 and I wasn't jamming Obituary, you know I was listening to this. These dudes were actually metalheads themselves, main rapper Def P is still rocking his long ass hair in this 1990 video. This is a different version of their infamous track "Moordenaar" ("Murderer"), recorded and shot for some tv show. Rare find! The song and its lyrics had the same controversial effect as Bodycount's "Cop Killer" did in the States at the time. It's pretty hilarious to see Osdorp now since it's some juvenile shit, plus they kind of turned into a joke, but back then the Posse was hard. Their logo was an upside down cross, and their lyrics were offensive. Def P had a trademark gimmick: he made up direct translations of common rap terms and phrases from english to dutch, and used these made up words in his songs constantly. He said his dutch version of "motherfucker" so often that it became popular enough to be added to the official dutch dictionary. You probably never heard of this guy, but when did you ever get a word into a dictionary?
