Biography

Pyranja is a female German rapper.
Pyranja started rapping at the age of 16. Early supporters and precursors were the rap crews DSC and the Underdog Cru. After a yearlong stay in Boston she went back to Germany, more precisely to Berlin. She socialized in the scene very quickly and many contributions for other artists followed.
The label Def Jam Germany showed great interest in the upcoming rap artist and so she released her first EP, called “Im Kreis “, in 2001. She even entered the German charts without any promotion. When the production of her album Wurzeln & Fl gel was already finished and the date of release was set, Def Jam broke up because of the difficult market situation.
Later Wurzeln & Fl gel was released by another label called Dackel Enterprise. The sales figures of this record also surpassed all expectations and steadied her good reputation as “best female German rapper”.
In 2004 Pyranja and her colleagues Joe Rilla, Dra-Q, Jamie White and Sera Finale founded the rap crew Ostblokk. Since they had known each other for a long time and had already used the same studios, the collaboration was a logical conclusion.The CD Einmal um Blokk was released and became very successful.
In 2004 Pyranja also released her CD Frauen & Technik by her own independent label Pyranja Records.This record turned out to be the most multifaced in her career. It does not only convince by her familiar calm and profound songs but also reflects the rough side of Pyranja. Using the pseudonym Christiane Latte for her tracks Ab 18 and Blondes Gift she performed as sassy as many of her male colleagues.The ironic dig at the male-dominated rap-branche was made with intent.
In 2006, the new single “Nie wieder” and the album Laut & Leise have been released.Furthermore she performed for her home state, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, at this year’s Bundesvision Song Contest and made eighth place.
