Gangsta rap from Guetersloh

Very few people are going to find this funny. But some of those people read this blog. Basically, if you don't find the title of this post funny, you're probably wasting your time reading the rest of this post.

I just stumbled upon a gangsta rap video from Guetersloh on YouTube.

I lived in Guetersloh from 1991 to the middle of 1994. It is a small town in Germany. Bertelsmann AG, the global media giant, has their headquarters there. This is why a) the town is quite well off, and b) it was the center of a German game industry cluster in the late 80s and early 90s. Activision, EA, United Software, Rainbow Arts, they all had offices there at some point or considered opening one. Ascaron and Synetic are still there.

The idea of gangsta rap from this town is just hilarious. It's pretty bad too.
