  • Lyrics
  • Hardy Caprio is a rapper from the town of Croydon in South London. He successfully launched his music career while graduating with a first in Finance and Accounting from Brunel University in 2018. This song is his first UK Top 20 hit.
  • Here, Hardy Caprio links up with his fellow South London rapper DigDat. The pair trade energetic verses about their success bragging about their high end cars, sexual activity and jewelry. While Caprio's rhymes are in his usual high-spirited vein, DigDat's bars are more violent as befitting his drill rap background.
  • Guten Tag is German for "good day/good afternoon." The song title relates to the country of origin of the Mercedes that Caprio is driving ("Me and Dave got matching Mercs.")
  • The song's colorful music video was directed by previous Caprio collaborator Wowa. It finds the two rappers enjoying the fruits of their labor as they chill in an opulent mansion. Naturally there are plenty of shots of expensive cars, frosted jewelry and beautiful women.
