The relationship between the Norwegian cultural field at large and the Norwegian right wing populist Progress Party has been, and still is, characterized by enduring antagonism. Norwegian hip hop music is arguably the form of artistic expression through which antipathy towards the Progress Party (the FRP) is most explicitly articulated. This article situates this antagonism in the wider political and sociocultural context of Norway. It further outlines how the practices and aesthetics typical of the Norwegian hip hop scene facilitate antagonism against the FRP, and how this antagonism plays out in the public sphere. In conclusion this study discusses these public intersections in light of the FRP’s populist claim to be victimized by the mainstream media and cultural sector.
