LOS ANGELES, CA
It’s been a whirlwind year for upstart Mennonite hip-hop artist Corny Reimer, whose debut album Straight Outta Rosenfeld smashed record sales and scooped up a whopping five Grammy Awards at last night’s event.
“I think Corny Reimer is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Mennonite rap talent,” said music executive Samantha Ebert. “I mean there are thousands of Reimers out there; I’m really surprised the Mennonites haven’t been dominating these awards before.”
Corny Reimer is most well-known for the theme song to the television show Fresh Prince of Plum Coulee, which has fans reciting the line, “In West Reserve, born and raised, on the combine is where I spent most of my days…”
“I’d like to tank all my fans for real once,” said Reimer as he took the podium. “It’s been a real plazure to make da rap music yat.”
Reimer’s victory is the first time in the history of the Grammy Awards that a Plautdietsch album took home the Album of Year Award. In response to Corny Reimer’s success, Kanye West is reportedly considering remixing his last album The Life of Pablo to contain a little less profanity and a lot more Low German.
