Casper - Benjamin Griffey - 2013


I don’t see our big shows as the result of one hit-album, I see it as the result of more then ten years work and more than ten years of eating shit.

WIth his 2011 album XOXO Benjamin Griffey aka. CASPER revolutionized the German rap scene and became one of the biggest hypes the German music scene has seen in a long time. Now he is back with his new album Hinterland, an amazing follow-up album with which CASPER will probably make it to one of the biggest German artists ever. NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION sat down with Ben to talk about the time between XOXO and Hinterland, the recording-sessions of the album, the collaboration with EDITORS frontman Tom Smith, writing a stadium album, ten years of eating shit and of course hope and passion.
