Notkea Rotta is a Finnish rap group consisting of members Notkea Rotta ("Supple Rat"), Rautaperse ("Iron Arse"), Komisario Jyrkkä ("Inspector Stern") and Meno-Anu ("Speedy-Anu"). The group mixes humour and comedy in their brand of hip hop, crafting original (and largely fictional) rap saga of the underground culture in the east side of Helsinki. Notkea Rotta heavily parodies - or pays tribute to - American gangsta rap.
Notkea Rotta released their debut album Panokset piippuun, pöhinät pönttöön in 2002. Their lyrical subject matter mostly deals with common Finnish street drugs (especially amphetamine), sex and the occasional clashes with the police. The group raps exclusively in Finnish and Helsinki slang.
