De Wilde Man
Sunday, 12 August 2007
This is mainly for the Dutch readers of this Soundtrack. It is about a guy who calls himself De Wilde Man, but his real name is Warren. I know this because he mentions it in one of his raps. De Wilde Man is a rapper.
Here is one of his raps:
I recorded this from Tegenwicht voor Evenwicht, a weekly radioshow on KinkFM, hosted by the godfather of the Nederhop, Def P.
I have recorded as much of this program as I could. I began doing this many years ago, for my son, who loves rap. I made him CD’s with some of the raps that fit his young ears.
Today he is old and wise enough to do this himself. And he surely does no longer need a father to leave out all the raps with offending language. (Which i burnt on CD’s for myself and friends.)
The nice thing about the show is that Def P plays a lot of demos that listeners sent in. One of the people who sent in demos was De Wilde Man. For a while he was very popular among some of the listeners to the show, and he got more requests than any other rapper. I have no idea how many demos Def P got from him, but I have recorded about six raps.
Here is another one:
I always find it difficult to explain what I like about certain songs, and I prefer not even to try it. But anyone who uses a word like wappie can count me in on his list of fans. I have no idea what has become of Warren. Def P, and his sidekick Samiro, tried to get him into the studio for a while, but he never showed up. And if there has ever been a CD released (which I more than doubt), I don’t know where to get it. But if there are more than three requests, I will post another selection of my Wilde Man collection.
