German Hip Hop Music - Die Fantastischen Vier

Considered to be pioneers on the scene, besides being one of the best German hip hop bands, Die Fantastischen Vier (The Fantastic Four) changed the face of European hip hop with their catchy songs and lyrics that used the German language as it had never been before. Their career began in the late 80's and by the incoming decade they were already editing their first record, Jetzt Geht's Ab (1991).

Led by rappers Hausmarke and Thomas D, they have edited regularly since then; the Unplugged version they released for MTV Europe is especially recommended; it could be considered as a compilation of some of their best songs: "Alles Schon Gesehen", "Millionen Legionen" or "Die Stadt die es nicht gibt" are just some of them.

The "Fanta 4" were among the first groups to rap in the German language. Between 1991 and 2010 the band has published 15 albums. The band released their greatest hits album in 2005, after the highly successful album Viel in 2004.
