[A-Radio auf Englisch]: Interview with Social Waste on HipHop and politics in Greece


We present an interview with the Greek Hip Hop collective Social Waste, who were on tour and performed in Berlin on the 6th of July 2014. Social Waste are involved in multiple, ongoing struggles in Greek. The group has been active since the late 1990s and they are engaged in providing a sociopolitical analysis through their music. In the interview, Leonidas, Yiannis, Yiorgis and Chris tell us about the history of Hip Hop in Greece, what motivates them to do music and how they produce it. They also tell us about current issues in Greece, concerning the crisis, its neoliberal management and the antifascist struggle.

This is the English original version.

Length: 24:30 min
