Slovak Hip Hop, Rap from Slovakia

As with the many other countries in the world producing their own regionalized Hip Hop, Slovakia is emerging with it’s own brand of rap. Slovak hip hop is said to have begun in 1988. Long-running crews are Lúza and Drvivá Menšina, who perform together as Názov Stavby with DJ Hajtkovi?. Vec, formerly of the seminal duo Trosky, is considered by many today to be the most influential figures within hip hop music in Slovakia, although newer acts such as A.M.O, ?istychov, Kontrafakt have also gained significant popularity since 2003. Modra Ziara is one of Slovakia’s notable female rappers.
