Straight outta Compton

szpylbert_dr_dre2Here’s a bizarre story for you: when Szpylbert was spending  formative years in 1990s Bavaria (think lederhosen and tractors), gangster rap from Los Angeles was all the rage with the bullies at Szpylbert’s local school. They took the imitation rather seriously, including the slang (imagine the accent!), baggy trousers and, believe it or not, smoking crack cocaine. Needless to say that this was traumatising. Whenever Szpylbert hears rap music he still shudders a little bit.
