Bushido and Sido are both successful rappers from Germany. The former friends had a fallout in 2004 when Bushido left their label Aggro Berlin as a result from a dispute with the owners and founders of the label. Afterwards both rappers insulted and dissed each other in public on numerous occasions. Early in 2011 they reconciled after an 8-year hip hop rivalry and began to work on the album.


Two singles were released: "So mach ich es" and "Erwachsen sein". The video for the first single was shot in Kiev and directed by Specter one of the former CEOs of Aggro Berlin. The second single features German singer Peter Maffay, who re-sung elements of his 1983 song "Nessaja" from the album Tabaluga oder die Reise zur Vernunft.
