"...hela Sverige håller på att lära sig skånska!" : En stilistisk analys av Malmös rap- och roastbattlescener

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för musikvetenskap

Sammanfattning: This essay is based on an observation, made by the author, that the scenes in Malmö for rap battles and roast battles have actors in common. To identify and discuss why that is, the essay will conduct an aesthetic analysis and compare common tools used by rappers and comedians in the respective scenes. The analysis relies on discussions and theories about music as a performance and the term “musicking” coined by Christopher Small. By drawing inspiration from a performance analysis proposed by Philip Auslander, a new tool for analysis is proposed in the essay. Therefore, the focus of the analysis is on the performance aspect of rap battles and roast battles. The tools used by the rappers and comedians divided into four different groups. The use of the voice, the character, the flow and rhythm of the rap and speech and the use and effect of an audience. The results of the essay point out the specific tools that is common for rappers and comedians as well as contrasting their respective means and ends. It also offers an explanation of why Malmo was, for a long time both the centre for Swedish comedy and the cradle of Swedish rap battles.
