Leopold Karrer is a newcomer in the industry but already showcases plenty of potential to change up the scene for the better. Not only is he doing well as a rapper with his lyrical and rap skills in his right, Poldi is also doing things a little differently.
He makes sure all his music is about real-world, meaningful topics, a far cry from a fair chunk of the industry that base their material around showing off material possessions. And the young rapper from Munich is well aware that he is going against the typical rapping style. And, what with all that has been going on this year, it could be argued that this type of positive media content is more essential than ever. You can get a good flavour of his message just by knowing the name of his debut single is called “Liebe > Hass” (which means love is bigger than hate). Not all ways the sentiment you find among artists in the rap industry, so again very encouraging.
This young artist is ready to address urgent topics and issues of his generation, one that is confronted with the responsibility of this society’s and planet’s future. As he points out “Why do we, the youngest, have to take care of the aftermath of your past irresponsibilities?” A relevant reference point is after the recent presidential elections in the United States when CNN noted, that “this year’s Thanksgiving is going to be the most uncomfortable in decades”, pointing out the huge differences of opinions and approaches that exist between the young and older generations. You can be sure that Poldi represents an advocate for progressive unity, fully speaking up for tolerance and respect.
Poldi is signed with the 99 Problemz Music group and is ready to be in the game for the long-haul, not interested in “quick fix” music to make a quick bit of money and then disappear. He is looking to make a genuine impact with his material and speak to fans in a way they can relate: “It’s not about showing off. I want people to feel as if we’re on the same level and have similar issues. There wouldn’t be a point in talking about a lifestyle I don’t care about. I want people to know that I actually care about my listeners and the subjects I speak upon. This provides a special connection between the listener and the artist, which bragging about my wealth just won’t cut.”.
