Ufo361, who grew up in Kreuzberg/Berlin and became known in the graffiti scene as part of the THC Crew, is a key player in the German hip hop scene! His steep flight to the top of the charts began at recordJet:
in 2016 he released his mixtape “Ich bin ein Berliner”, which, according to Backspin, was one of best in the year, and blew away the competition. With the finest German trap produced by the Broke Boys, big guests like Sido and Bonez MC and his very own style, Ufo361 entered directly into the German album charts.
As a result, he brought out his next mixtape as quick as anything – just six months later – with recordJet and landed at #13 in the album charts with “Ich bin 2 Berliner”. No wonder, because “every beat is clean and of high quality production, each part is well-rapped, the feature guests are well-chosen and deliver it all” (rap.de).
If you have developed grassroots support – particularly without a major label in the background – then why not simply continue to do your own thing regardless? To this end, Ufo361 founded his own label “Stay High”.
Even if Ufo retired recently, we are hoping for a quick return and more releases – perhaps one day we’ll get “Ich bin 100 Berliner”.
