the essentials in brief
The second coach of “The Voice Rap by CUPRA” is now known! Stuttgart rapper Dardan sits on a red chair next to Kool Savas.
Mister Dardy confirmed as assistant coach!
Hello German rap! Careful! Mister Dardy is confirmed as second coach of “The Voice Rap by CUPRA”. After all, the MC from Stuttgart not only knows how to make a good stop, but also has a unique fluidity. He demonstrated early in his career that double-time lines come from his lips more easily than most German-speaking artists! In any case, Mister Dardy is very interested in “The Voice Rap by CUPRA”.
We’re looking for the baddest people. I am on the moon!
Compared to the harsh battle rap of the past, the Zuffenhausen native today has a somewhat calmer tone and is therefore more successful than ever. Dardan can now remember two platinum and five gold albums, collaborates with almost every successful rap artist today, and simply makes music that he likes. In short: he has been accepted into the hallowed halls of rap!
Dardan is also happy that rap has reached the mainstream of society and that a big show like “The Voice of Germany” now also focuses on hip-hop artists.
“The Voice” understands that rap is the voice of youth. And now with ‘The Voice Rap’ we offer a unique platform for young and fresh talents who represent and promote our culture!
Dardan has come to pass on his knowledge of the rap game and takes his place as a coach on “The Voice Rap by CUPRA” alongside Kool Savas. When we see Mr. Dardy resting on the red leather throne, all we can say is: Please stay exactly the same!
Stuggi can be tough too!
What do artists like Fantastischen Vier, Freundeskreis, Orson, Cro or Marz have in common? They all come from Stuttgart and the surrounding area and all adopt a calmer tone when it comes to rap. While backpack and conscious rap was at its peak in Stuttgart, for a long time the city was hardly considered a home for harder lyrics… until 2016.
“Who does it for?” with Eno it becomes a hit
Because in 2016 the rapper Dardan raised dust for the first time in Stuttgart! Together with fellow rapper Eno, the then 18-year-old with Kosovar Albanian roots released the song “Who Does Para?” The song went viral online and the music video now has over 30 million views. Suddenly, the name Dardan was on everyone’s lips and the Zuffenhausen district of Stuttgart became known throughout the country.
Dardan goes platinum twice
Collaborations with well-known rappers like Nimo and Olexesh didn’t take long before Dardan released his debut album “Dardy Luther King” in 2018. Four more studio albums with numerous top ten singles have followed to date. At only 25 years old, the artist already has two platinum and five gold albums to his name, and fills large halls on concert tours.
Inspiration from Great Britain
Dardan’s musical style is similar to English grime. Grime is a style of music originating in Great Britain that has its roots in hip-hop and electronic music, particularly two-step.
This “dirty” music made the rapper a star. Today it’s hard to imagine the German rap scene without him!
You can see “The Voice Rap by CUPRA” on Joyn starting September 14.
