Asa ja Jätkäjätkät

 

Asa ja Jätkäjätkät

Here's the official resistance fighter of the Finnish rap. Having started his recording career with the alias Avain in 2001, he left his multinational record company shortly after the release of the debut album, afraid of gaining more success than he felt he could take. In 2004, he returned to the headlines with the new name Asa and the acclaimed album Leijonaa metsästän.

Asa's music doesn't fit any single category particularly well. Deep down it's rap all right, but then it's layered with so many elements from a variety of genres that all that comes out is a wonderful composition of something entirely original. Maybe the single factor that determines Asa's genre is the critical, outspoken, smart and perspicacious lyrics that verify that individual thinking is still not forbidden in the modern music.
