German Rap: "Freundeskreis: Esperanto"

We were discussing Japanese rap and hip/hop in Contemporary Japan and Globalization seminar today. Armin provided an interesting cross-cultural comparison, a German hip/hop group named Freunderskreis (which means "circle of friends"). They are apparently quite socially conscious and rap in German, English, French and Esperanto. This video is quite visual as well. Enjoy.
