Paperi T (FIN)

Paperi T

A few years ago the Finnish rap scene had a gin flavoured blast, when Paperi T conquered the music charts. Paperi T, or Henri Pulkkinen, started his career in a rap collective called Ruger Hauer and pursued solo career in 2015. His music and lyrics are a far cry from the party rap with champagne and jetsets. Paperi T's music is filled with self-pity, self-hate, art, ruins of relationships and being pissed off. His nihilistic, yet also entertaining songs are clearly loved by the audience.

In addition to his solo career, Paperi T has also featured on other artists' songs, and two years ago he published a poetry book post-alfa. His latest collaboration is with Lauri Porra on Porra's solo album. And soon the wait for his new solo material is over, as Paperi T released the first single from his upcoming second album in April. Let's raise a quinine toast for having Paperi T at Ilosaarirock Festival once again!
