Dimmu Borgir To Collaborate with German Rapper Bushido

Having come to an agreement for using Dimmu Borgir's samples in his music, German rapper Bushido and Dimmu have set aside their differences and plan to collaborate on one or more tracks for a multi-track CD/digital single, tentatively planned to be released on "death-rapper" Necro's label, Psycho-Logical Records, this summer.

According to the rapper, the collaboration will be "as big or bigger than the original rap-metal collaborations of the 80s and early 90s," referring to such efforts such as the Aerosmith/Run DMC and Anthrax/Public Enemy collaborations. Bushido continued, "Merging of these genres - rap and black metal - has never been done before, and we're going to do it in KILLER style." "I've been a fan of Dimmu Borgir for a long time, so this opportunity to work with them rather than just sample some music is insane!"

Dimmu Borgir could not be reached for comment, but word of the collaboration has already sparked intense debate on their official forums, and metal forums around the Internet.

Necro is a piece of S**T. metal and rap are opposites and do not mix. rap is everything i stand against and if you see that he turns up dead, know that i will dance and spit on his grave. same deal with bushido. i just lost all respect for dimmu borgir. i hope they burn.

Keep_metal_white ~ what is your name referring to exactly? Are you saying only white musicians should play metal? Or are you throwing in the ignorant "I'm hardcore, because I'm racist" card and saying non white people cannot listen to metal? Humor me, please.
