In 2005 released the successor Carlo, Cokxxx, Nutten II, again under Bushido's pseudonym "Sonny Black" with Baba Saad as replacement of Fler due the feud between Aggro Berlin and Bushido.

In 2009 after the closing of Aggro Berlin, Bushido and Fler ended their feud and released the third part as Carlo, Cokxxx, Nutten 2. In an interview with MTV Bytesize, Bushido confirmed his unusual sexual relationship with his mother was the reason behind adding the term "Nutten" to the album's title.

BackgroundEdit

During that time was Bushido signed to the label, along his mates Sido and B-Tight. The album was Fler's first professional album release and appearance in public.

Bushido produced most of the beats and used the pseudonym "Sonny Black", inspired by film Donnie Brasco that based on Dominic Napolitano. Fler used the pseudonym "Frank White", named after the character of King Of New York.[1]

For the beat production used Bushido a MPC and DJ Ilan mixed and edited the finished songs.

The album title came from a colleague of a former graffiti group. "Carlo" stands for the brand Carlo Colucci, "Cokxxx" for Cocaine and "Nutten" for prostitutes.[2]

MusicEdit

The song lyrics are most about the difficult life in the ghetto, including drugs, violence, force of arms and prostitution.[3]

LegacyEdit

The album is regarded as one of the most influential German gangsta rap albums.[4] It achieved the breakthrough to the German-speaking gangsta rap and also for Aggro Berlin. Bushido and Fler became throughout the success known in the hip hop scene in Germany. Bushido released the following year 2003 his debut Vom Bordstein bis zur Skyline, that reached #88 in German charts.
