Haftbefehl was born Aykut Anhan in Offenbach am Main, Germany, on 16 December 1985 to a Turkish mother and Kurdish father from eastern Turkey. By Anhan's own account, he dropped out of school.[citation needed] In 2006, he fled to Istanbul because of an impending imprisonment; from there he moved to the Netherlands and lived in Amsterdam and Arnhem. Along the way he wrote his first lyrics. After his return to his hometown Offenbach, he began working as a vehicle mechanic. After three weeks he quit and subsequently began running a betting shop.

After that he started recording his first songs. When Samson Jones, the owner of the label Echte Musik, heard Haftbefehl's songs, he was assured of his skills and gave him a contract. Haftbefehl was involved with eight contributions at the sampler Kapitel 1: Zeit für was Echtes. He also gained attention by bis contribution on the sampler La Connexion and on singles from fellow rappers Kollegah and Manuellsen.

On 29 October 2010, Haftbefehl released his first album called Azzlack Stereotyp, which reached 59 on MusicLine's Top 100 chart on November 15, 2010.[4] After the closing of the label Echte Musik he launched his own label called Azzlacks.

In Spring 2012, Haftbefehl released his second album, Kanackiş, which contains songs with other famous German musicians like Jan Delay and Sido. On the15th anniversary of the death of American rapper The Notorious B.I.G., the splash! magazine released a mixtape named The Notorious H.A.F.T.

With the single Chabos wissen wer der Babo ist, Haftbefehl entered the German single charts for the first time.
