Fettes Brot (German pronunciation: [ˈfɛtəs ˈbʁoːt]) is a German hip hop group that was founded in 1992.
Fettes Brot is German for fat bread. "Fett" is a German slang term for "excellent" and brot is slang for "hash". The band took the name from a fan who called them "Fettes Brot" after an early gig, which was probably meant as a compliment, but the members considered it so bizarre that they took it as the name for their new group. Fettes Brot's longevity has meant that it is sometimes referred to as "Hamburg's hip-hop-dinosaurs" by its members.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
