Slovak rap artists who have released their material through commercial networks remain conscious of their origins and broadly represent Slovak rap's intentions. They fixate lyrically on local urban realities. In addition to illustrating how rap offers a vector of privileged access to discourses within Slovak society, this essay presents an insight into how a global music idiom has been appropriated and re-elaborated with local meanings. The stance of “alienated observer” is not informed by experiences of ethnic or racially based social marginalization. Rather, everyday life within Slovakia's analogous urban settings has been refracted artistically through rapped pronouncement and imagery.
