Federal Councilor Alain Berset likes to hear Ice Cube, as he shows on Instagram. He is celebrated for this. But what does the Minister of Health want to tell us?

Berset is less for his taste in music, but more for his press conferences on the epidemiological situation and the new Corona measures known.

Alain Berset doesn't just listen to Ice Cube. He also likes other genres, according to a spokeswoman for 20 Minuten.

That's what

  • Health Minister Alain Berset out on Instagram as a fan of hip-hop legend Ice Cube.

  • He is celebrated on social media for this. At the same time, hidden messages are searched for.

  • Berset does not want to answer that. However, he hears different genres, according to the Federal Council.

Federal Councilor Alain Berset is now familiar to everyone in Switzerland. For almost two years now, the Minister of Health has been providing weekly information on the epidemiological situation in Switzerland – and always with a stern expression.

But the Federal Council can also do something else, as it reveals to its 118,000 followers on Instagram. The 49-year-old from western Switzerland recently revealed his love for the world-famous American hip-hop star Ice Cube. In an Instagram story, Berset shared one of Ice Cube's best-known titles, “You know how we do it”. This now even has a place on Berset's favorite playlist.

Conflict between West and East Side

The song was released in February 1994 and made it to 30th place on the “Billboard Hot 100”. The song has already been streamed over 220 million times on Spotify alone.

Berset writes in his story “Nothing but a West Side”. He is addressing the central message of the song. Ice Cube raves about its place of origin, the West Side. «Nothin & # x27; but the West Side »- there is nothing else for the rapper.

The violent conflict between the West and East Side and the two record companies “Bad Boy Entertainment” from New York and “Row Records” from Los Angeles are also addressed. A high point of the clashes were the murders of the rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

«What does Berset mean by that?»

Berset is celebrated for this on social media. But often the question of a hidden message also arises. “What is Berset trying to tell us?” Asks a Twitter user. A hymn of praise to his hometown, western Switzerland? Or is it just an attempt to get brownie points from young people and hip-hop fans?

We don't know. Even a request to the spokesman for the Federal Council does not shed any light on the issue. One thing is certain, however: Alain Berset not only listens to hip-hop, but also to many other genres. Here you can listen to his favorite songs on his Spotify playlists.
