Klingon-Language Rapper


(YouTube Link)


Klenginem is a German rapper who performs in the Klingon language, mostly modified Eminem songs. Here is his performance of "SuvwI'pu' qan tu'lu'be", which is known in English as "Without Me."

Rap is dumb-dumb music; no self-respecting Klingon would listen to it. Impostor! And Eminem sounds better with a roll of dutch tape around his mouth.

Most hip hop music is just misunderstood, glen. There are plenty of artists out there who correctly represent the hip hop culture, for example: De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Anticon, The Pharcyde, etc. I will warn you that if you just don't like the tone, beats, sound of ethnic music you really wont like hip hop in general, however that would make you a typical bigot.
Also, it's spelled duct tape.

Amazing...!

...But what a waste of talent.... - With such capabilities, this guy could be an ultimate multilinguist if there ever was one instead of squandering his abilities on rapping in a fake language...

Foreigner1 , how do you know he is wasting a linguistic gift? That seems presumptuous. For all you know he also speaks fluent Romulan, Vulcan and Qlargian.

So what? He's translated "songs" into another language, people have been doing that for centuries. It's not a talent really, is it? It really doesn't matter that it's an invented language rather than an evolved one.

'I will warn you that if you just don’t like the tone, beats, sound of ethnic music you really wont like hip hop in general, however that would make you a typical bigot.'

Are you serious? So if I don't like classical music does that make me bigoted against white Europeans? What a stupid statement.

I like neither Na'vi nor Klingon, as the future global language. Especially when you have to dress up for it :D

We also need a future international language. One which is easy to learn, as well !

And that's not English ! Esperanto ? Let's move forward :)

At least Bill Shatner speaks Esperanto. Please confirm at http//www.lernu.net
