German Hip Hop band BSMG have just done a tune called Jesse Owens.
I don’t speak the language. But the name Owens reminds me of:

So what did actually happen when Jesse Owens went to the 1936 Berlin Olympics?

Production seems to be by Haarmann.
No relation to the butcher of Hanover I assume — Fritz Haarmann.
