AMSTERDAM — A Dutch rapper has launched a ferocious musical tirade against the teenager who put his own rap number on the internet in which he apologises to his girlfriend for setting her on fire in a fit of jealousy.
The 16-year-old teen from Leeuwarden has been charged with attempted murder and is currently undergoing psychiatric assessment.
It emerged Thursday that he had written the song and placed on the internet to ask his girlfriend to forgive him. The victim, also 16, is still in hospital being treated for serious burns and a knife wound sustained last week.
Believing she had kissed another boy while on holiday, the teen allegedly tied her to a chair in his house and carved his name into her chest. He then is said to have poured turpentine over her and set her alight. He lit the paint thinner on her body twice before bring her to the shower.
Afterwards, he wrote the rap song in which he claimed the devil had been in him when he attacked her.
He goes on to rap in rhyme "ik heb verdriet, ik heb spijt, schatje, ik wil je niet kwijt". Roughly translated this means: I am sorry, I am remorseful, darling, I don't want to lose you.
Lange Frans, who is currently doing well in the Dutch charts with his song Moppie, unveiled his Dutch language response to the teenage arsonist on 3fm radio on Thursday. The song is called Pannenkoek, Dutch for pancake.
In it, Lange Frans asks the teen 'on behalf of hiphop in the Netherlands' never to rap again.
"How can you think that a focking [sic] rap can make something alright, because the Dutch people want to know how your blood tastes," the rapper sings.
"I hope that you spend about eight years [in jail] and that you are raped night and day, and never laugh again," Lange Frans sings with particular venom.
