It felt as if it came out of nowhere. A new music scene of young rappers with an extravagant, colourful style, drowsy rhymes and hazy beats, which originated from the music platform SoundCloud and took the hip-hop world by storm. The success was huge, but the scandals were even bigger. Overdoses, gun killings, abuse and violent episodes have all become a part of the heavy baggage of the SoundCloud generation. Nonetheless, the young rap stars have retained a huge fan base, who stick to them through thick and thin and identify themselves in their emotional lyrics. A musical youth rebellion with parallels to the breakthrough of punk in the 1970s.
