Released in 2012, the strangely titled HRNSHN is the third album by German rap crew 257ers and their first album for Selfmade Records, which has previously released records by fellow rappers Kollegah and Favorite as well as hip-hop duo Genetikk. As on their first two albums (2009's Hokus Pokus and 2010's ZWEN), the 257ers (their name refers to the last three digits of their hometown's zip code) offer a deliberately juvenile and low-brow barrage of irony and absurd humor, as can be heard on tracks such as "Go Ninja," "Mein Schwanz Sagt," and the first single, "Auseinanda." HRNSHN was largely produced by Johnny Illstrument and Krizz Dallas, who provide a flashy '90s Euro-dance background, and features two guest appearances by Favorite. The album entered the German charts at number six. ~ Christian Genzel
