Sascha Reimann (born 2 October 1973 in Neuwied), alias Ferris MC, is a German musician, rapper and actor.

Biography[edit]

Ferris spent his youth in Neumünster, Kiel, and then Bremen. A recurring theme of social exclusion is predominant in his music.

He graduated from Hauptschule and served his apprenticeship as an auto mechanic. At the same time, he was a radio DJ and actor (i.e. Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten).[citation needed]

Together with Flowin Immo and DJ Pee, Ferris founded the Freaks Association Bremen (FAB),[1] which, in the quickly-growing German hip hop scene, achieved success rather quickly. They performed at several events, festivals, and on MTV and VIVA.

In 1994, FAB released their first album Freaks, on the small indie label MZEE. Three years later, they disbanded over a private, professional dispute.[citation needed]

Ferris moved to Hamburg and in with Tobi Tobsen and finds DJ Stylewarz, who turned out to be a patient live DJ that was more fitting to Ferris' musical style. He released several records on Yo Mama.

In 1999, he released the single "Reimemonster" with fellow rapper Afrob, which was a success, and followed it with his first solo album Asimetrie. Later the same year he parted ways with Stylewarz, and wound up deeper in the Hamburg drug scene.[citation needed]

His second LP Fertich was released in 2001, but the single "Flash for Ferris MC" and the corresponding music video don't fulfill the high commercial expectations. In 2003, Ferris released a musical autobiography, adequately called Audiobiographie and his last regular album Ferris MC.

On 17 March 2006, his last single was released on the greatest hits album Düstere Legende'. It concluded Ferris' career as a hip hop artist.[citation needed]

As Maniax, a house and electro project with Marc Deal, he plays in clubs in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.[citation needed]

Since 2008 he is a member of the band Deichkind.
