Sookee is a shining light in the German hip-hop scene. The queer-feminist rapper’s tracks were anthems in the queer party scene and the soundtrack to leftist political demonstrations. Sookee is a member of Tick Tick Boom, a collective fighting for alternatives to sexist standards in German rap to create an emancipatory hip-hop culture. The activist and artist has also steadily been making a name for herself in the mainstream music industry. With releases on Berlin label Springstoff for the past decade under her belt, Sookee will be launching her new album on Hamburg label Buback Tonträger in 2017.
