His demeanor is a bit too juvenile and eager for me. It's not at a Harald Schmidt level of slickness yet (but that guy is a total cynic who gives zero fucks). It's a difficult balance to strike in that part of the business. Do you still care when you make fun of everybody and everything?

His meta trolling is appreciated, though a little exhausting when it goes circular.

The police track ("Isch hab Polizei") caused a stir in the German hip hop world because the bourgeois son of a police officer was seen as making fun of the 'heartfealt' hip hop about the experience of the social margins. Quite the analogy to the US. Hip hop is still mostly a black business there. And a sizeable part of it is Turkish/Arab here.

Schengen is toast!

I find hip-hop artist Fler even claimed that Ich hab Polizei was Böhmermann's reaction to his verbal threats of violence, which in turn were inspired by Böhmermann's unwillingness to invite him into his show to react to earlier spoofs of his art. Overall, it's a weird impression when a rapper whines like a pussy and then issues macho threats :-) Another rapper saw it similarly.
