'Every time I want to renew myself'
Greenlandic rapper Peand el doesn't like to repeat himself
Peand el talks about being one of the most popular rappers in Greenland: the songs, the problems and the hip hop-scene.
Peand eL (P & L) has been around the greenlandic hip hop scene since 2005 with the release of his first album "Eqqissitinnga". His second album "Tarrara - my shadow" was released in February 2009, with impressive collaboration with Mariina, Tuumotz, Rasmus Lyberth, Anda Uldum and many others (source: pisiitblog).
A softly speaking, squat man in his 20s, standing outside a bleak block of flats, is telling a story familiar to that of rappers around the world. The son of a travelling fisherman and an alcoholic mother: his Inuit lyrics are all about neglect. "I write about my life," he says. "I write about my neglected childhood and about suicide."
