Hip-Hop culture in Heidelberg
The city of Heidelberg claims to be the "cradle of German-language Hip-Hop. "The impact of this scene influences all of Germany," Mayor Eckart Würzner was quoted as saying when the application was submitted a year and a half ago. According to this logic, without Heidelberg rap pioneers like Advanced Chemistry, there would probably be no groups like the Beginners. And indeed, the Beginners named their last album "Advanced Chemistry" as a mark of respect.
