The artist, who grew up under the civil name Anis Mohamed Youssef Ferchichi, started his career a good 20 years ago. His solo album "Vom Bordstein bis zur Skyline" (From the Kerb to the Skyline), released in 2003, is today considered a classic of hip hop because of its musically atmospheric density - however, it has been on the index since 2005 because of its discriminatory lyrics.
He reached number 1 in the album charts for the first time in 2007 with "7". His next seven albums also all reached the top position in Germany. In 2023, he once again caused a stir with his single "Dark Knight", a disco track in which he settled the score with his former companion Capital Bra - the singer with whom he recorded the song "Für euch alle" in 2018, which reached number one in the singles charts. When Bushido announced the plans for his next live performances in autumn 2023 after an eight-year absence from the stage, he also announced his farewell. "My last tour," he wrote on Instragram. On the "King Forever" tour, he will play nine arenas between 21 March and 14 April 2024, including the Olympic Hall on 23 March. "It will be an unforgettable experience," Bushido said in advance.
