“It’s human to error, so we do it every day!”
That’s a quote from the-don’t-give-a-fuck-ism or just Ismen that Mickelito and Sober formed together. Ismen is real farm boy hip hop in a good way, and the sound they create together, sometimes with an almost embarrassing puberty sense of humour in “Alla gillar brudar” (“Everyone likes chicks”), sometimes more serious like in “Alla älskar en död man” (“Everyone loves a dead man”) and a nice image of smelly flannel shirts and fuck you-attitude, is just what is needed on stage.
The album “Inget kan bli skönt nog” (“Nothing is nice enough”) is without doubt the hottest release in Swedish in a long time. Mickelito and Sober makes their music sound intelligent, however unintelligent this may sound. But the fact is that if there were a winner’s stand where Organism12 would be the punchline master of Sweden, then Ismen definitely would be up there on the stand. Instead of an all-too-serious record you are entertained all the time by the music that is inventive and well-written. Ismen’s enormous vocabulary shoots out original thoughts while the beats, produced by Xeilon and others, give Ismen’s expression a totality.
So if you thought that Eminem didn’t “give a fuck”, go and get “Inget kan bli skönt nog”. You have to!
