The 21-year-old asthma, or rather Mateusz Wardynski, drew attention to himself just over a year ago when he released his first Polish-language song, Centrala. The rapper, who hails from Bielsko-Biała, previously wrote in English. And although, like Mata, he defends himself against the term “voice of a generation,” unlike the young Matczak, he is a rapper who truly creates conscious hip-hop; clearly and bluntly expressing his views. Importantly, Asthma speaks for society, not the environment or a class. “I always shy away from this phrase [głos pokolenia]. Do you know why? Because they are often attributed to an individual. And in my opinion, this is something that goes down a million throats, not one. This is what people will identify with. I would definitely prefer a situation where there are a million artists who speak out about certain issues, rather than one person who will be called the voice of a generation by the media, because it often seems insincere to me.” – he stresses in numerous interviews, and we are glad that a representative of the Bielsko scene will perform on the main stage of the SnowFest Festival, proving that Polish rap – including that created by younger generational artists – can not only be qualitative, but also extremely stagey and thrilling the crowds gathered in front of the stage.
