K. Ronaldo: »[HIPHOP] MEANS OLD DIRTY MEN WHO HAVE VINYLS AT HOME« // Interview

K-Ronaldo-2

Kristus Ronaldo ist Erlöser, Messias, Koks-Prediger und der große Bruder von Yung Hurn. Sein Rap beschränkt sich auf verwirrende, langgezogene Vokale, die durch den Raum fliegen, ohne jemals eine ersichtliche Bedeutung zu entfalten. Und natürlich auf die essenziellen Fragen: »Wer bist du?«, »Hast du Koks?« und »Wieso gibt’s am Friedhof kein Burger King?« Nach einem Rehab-Aufenthalt im Betty Ford Center von Los Angeles ist K. Ronaldo mittlerweile auf den Bühnen unterwegs und verteilt ähnlich wie Based God Lil B Liebe an alle. Sein Debüt-Mixtape heißt »I Wanted to Kill Myself but Today is my Mothers Birthday« und schwimmt irgendwo ganz weit draußen in verwirrenden Spähren. Mehr F*cks wurden schon lange nicht mehr gegeben. Denn wer sonst beginnt sein Tape mit einer Predigt und prügelt am Ende mit Techno auf einen ein? Eben. Weil das und die Leute dahinter ziemlich obskur, gleichzeitig interessant sind, haben wir mit K. Ronaldo ein Interview geführt. Obwohl er auf Deutsch rappt, artikuliert er sich in den Sozialen Medien und in unserem Gespräch in einer eigenen Interpretation der Englischen Sprache. Die unredigierte, über Facebook besprochene Wahrheit über K. Ronaldos Rehab, Autounfälle, seinen Bruder Yung Hurn und seine HipHop-Definition gibt es hier, das Mixtape bei Live From Earth.

 

Hey K. Ronaldo, how are you doing?
MEN…………………………………..FEEL BEST. YOU ????????????

Great, what’s going on in Vienna?
SUN SHINE – WHEATER FINE. WHAT A MENS WANT MORE ???????????????

I see you’re enjoying life. Are you into soccer, do you like Cristiano Ronaldo?
HMMM… WHEN I WAS YOUNG… I WAS REALLY GOOD PLAYER. I WAS THE BIG HOPE FOR MY FOOTBALL TEAM SV HIRSCHSTETTEN. BUT THEN ONE SUMMER I HAD A CAR ACCIDENT, NOT BIG CRASH, BUT SOMEONE DROVE IN OUR CAR FROM BEHIND. SO AT THIS MOMENT I GOT PROBLEMS WITH MY BACK AND COULDNT GIVE MY BEST ANYMORE. BOUT CRISTIANO: HE WAS COOL WHEN I WAS YOUNG BUT NOW I THINK HIMSELF IS VERRY ARROGANT U KNOW. I DONT KNOW RALLY.. U SEE HIS MOVIE??? HAHAH MEN U MUST IF U DIDNT

I’m sorry to learn about your accident! I heard you’re more into swimming now.
YES I CAN SWIM VERY GOOD …. SPORTY GUY HEHE ;–P I HAVE POOL. OK ON ROOF. ASK MC BOMBER HE KNOWS…… YOU KNOW HIM ??? MEN ????????????? YOU HERE ???????

Wow, a pool. You must have a proper crib like a real rap star then.
YOU SAY THIS. IM NOT RAP STAR MAN

»IT WILL BE THE BEST AND MOST CREATIVE ARTWORK AUSTRIAS MUSIC INDUSTRY EVER HEARED.«

Why am I interviewing you in English? You rap in German after all.
AH ITS MY MOTHER LANGUAGE THE GERMAN…..BUT I WAS LIVING LONG TIME IN THE US.

Do you have a German ghostwriter for your songs?
NONO. I AM GHOSTWRITER TOO. WAS MOVING TO HUNGARY TO MY GRANDPARENTS AT AGE OF 15. AFTER 2 YEARS THERE I MOVED TO MY UNCLE IN MEMPHIS. THEN I WAS LONG TIME IN THE US. I CAME THEN BACK TO EUROPE BUT THE LIFESTYLE FUCKED ME UP HERE. TOOK ME LONG TIME TO REALIYZE.

What does HipHop mean for you?
IT MEANS OLD DIRTY MEN 30+ WHO HAVE VINYLS AND TURNTABLES AT HOME FOR ME. BUT WAIT… IN A POSITIVE WAY. I LOVE THAT STYLE.

Are you a vinyl collector?
WAHT YOU THINK HOW MANY VINYLS YOU MUST HAVE TO BE A VINYL COLLECTOR?

I don’t know. Maybe we should ask a real HipHop head like Falk Schacht.
TRUE HE WOULD KNOW. OK THEN I AM NOT A COLLECTOR. I HAVE SADE VINYLS AND TAME IMPALA. NOT MORE.

Your Mixtape »I Wanted to Kill Myself but Today is my Mothers Birthday« is out today. What is the most impressing fact about it?
HEY GREAT WE TALK ABOUT MY WORKS MEN :))) IT WILL BE THE BEST AND MOST CREATIVE ARTWORK AUSTRIAS MUSIC INDUSTRY EVER HEARED.

 
Your current single was influenced by Gabber, right?
YES IT WAS PRETTY GABBA SIMILIAR. UZ UZ UZ UZ UZ TECHNO SHIT U KNOW. I LIKE IT. IT WAS FUNNY, I WROTE ON FACEBOOK TO PEOPLE SEND ME BEATS AND SOMEONE SEND ME THAT ONE. I FELL IN LOVE AT THE FIRST LISTENING. THE PRODUCER, »DOGPATROL« IS A PRETTY COOL & WISE GUY I THINK, EVEN HE YOUNG (I THINK). BUT IT WAS THE BEST IDEA IN HIS LIFE SENDING ME THIS BEAT.

Maybe you can play it at Berghain.
HMMM… MAYBE THEY PLAY … MAYBE NOT

So is the mixtape a colorful collection of musical styles rather than a straight HipHop record?
ITS LIKE A BEST OF GREATEST HITS. NO BUT IF I REALLY THINK… ITS STUPID RAP WHERE I LET MY MIND FLY FREE AND DONT THINK ABOUT ANYBODY. THIS ALL WITH SIMPLE BUT HARD BASS BEATS. THIS IS NOT JUST TRACKS. ITS A LIFESTYLE. IT IS A MIDDLEFINGER TO ALL OTHER RAPPERS IN MY COUNTRY. IT IS SOMETHING LIKE: »HEY FUCK YOU ALL GUYS WAKE UP!!! DO WHATEVER YOU WANT!! TRY SOMETHING NEW!!«

Does that mean you do not like German or Austrian rap?
I NEVER SAID THAT. I LISTENED TO ALOT WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND STILL LISTEN. BUT IF I MAKE MUSIC I WANT ATLEAST TRY TO BE DIFFERENT.

 
Yung Hurn is featured on the song »Andi Goldberger«. What was it like to work with your little brother?
IT WAS LIKE ON CHRISTMAS TIME WITH THE FAMILY…. YOU GET DRUNK, AT FIRST ITS ALL GOOD, THEN YOU DRINK TOO MUCH AND YOU JUST SHOUT AROUND YOU KNOW…. BUT ON THE NEXT DAY ITS ALL OK. WE HAD ABIT BEEF BUT ALL THIS WAS CLEARED SOME WEEKS AGO. AFTER THAT I ASKED HIM IF HE WANT TO BE ON THE TAPE. WE MADE A TRACK FOR ANDI GOLDBERGER. YOU KNOW HIM?

I also read that you spent time at Betty Ford Center. What was the reason for that?
OHHHH. YES LIKE I TOLD YOU EUROPE WASNT GOOD FOR ME. I FELL INTO A BIG HOLE OF SADNESS AND NEEDED THE PROFESSIONAL HELP. THEY REALLY HELPED ME. MUSIC HELPED ME TOO OF COURSE AND PEOPLE WHO GAVE ME LOVE. AFTER THAT I STAYED IN LA AT CHRISTIAN ROSA. GREAT ARTIST. YOU KNOW??

Having successfully completed rehab, what are you hoping to achieve with your music as K. Ronaldo?
NOTHING. I WANT TO DO STUFF AND NOT TO GET ASKED WHAT I WANT TO ACHIEVE.

On social media you’re a really positive guy. Is being positive the most important thing for you?
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME, MYSELF… FOR OTHERS I CANT SPEAK… SOMETIMES IM NOT POSITIVE TOO AND HATE PEOPLE. BUT HERE IS THE PONT! ITS IS VERY BAD FOR YOURSELF AND FOR YOUR HEART TO HATE SOMEONE. THIS MAKES YOU SICK IF OU HATE TOO MUCH. EVEN IF U HATE ALOT THEN YOU GET USED TO IT AND DONT SEE HOW BAD IT IS FOR YOU TO HATE SOMEONE OR GO TO SLEEP WITH A MIND OF HATE. THIS IS A VERY HARD PART IN OUR LIFE. TO NOT HATE. THATS WHY I TRY TO SPREAD LOVE… EVEN THO I CANT DO IT ALL THE TIME MYSELF……. ITS HARD

Thank you for these wise words, K. Ronaldo.
TO ALL MY FANS: STAY THE WAY YOU ARE PLEASE OR IF YOU ARE NOT A GOD PERSON THEN TRY TO CHANGE MAYBE. THX – KRISTUS RONALDO. GREETING JOHANN! :————-)
