March 5

"Manche sagen ich habe einen Vogel, andere meinen das ich spinne, die haben nur teilweise recht. In Wirklichkeit habe ich eine Vogelspinne, ich bin tight.
-Taktloss - Underground Rap 4 Life ft Ronald Mack Donald / Viva 2 Supreme Teil 3 4: 40
transl.:
"Some say I have a bird(am nuts), others believe I have a spider(am bonkers), they are just partly right. In reality I have a bird spider"

So this punchline is a tough one to translate. The first two expressions are german idioms for being crazy, together they form the name of an animal: the bird spider. Taktloss states that he is being referred to as an insane person. Indeed he is so indescribably insane, that the only name they can put on him is "a bird spider", a dangerous and scary animal.


@ChuckyBalboa: Taktloss is from westberlin. He will also always represent his hometown with the Westside symbol
