Digga Ras made his first move as a Rapper in 2003. During a recording session for Schwarz Records he met DJ Zior (Beats/Pre-Production). Zior is one of Digga Ras ´s closest friends.
Shortly after he met Zior, Digga Ras became a founder of the Darmstädter Hip Hop group „Böse Zungen“. In the next years he and the group (Bruder Jakob, Zior, Wax, Mr C, Big Chilla and Hyde) produced seven records and several videos. Over this period they got in touch with many artists like Pal One, Joe Rilla (former member of „Aggro Berlin), Mädness, Zuh Boes and DJ KmK/WbN Squad.
A lot of labels, sponsors and managers were interested in the Hip Hop band as well, but disagreement inside the group and lack of experience lent to the split of „Böse Zungen“ in 2010.
After the break up of „Böse Zungen“ Digga Ras was disappointed and disaffected. And so he quit his musical career, untill he met Michael Rosenkranz (Zeus Production).
Michael supported Digga Ras in creative and financial ways and encouraged him to make music again. After 3 months of creative working Digga Ras and Zior could present an amount of 47 songs. In discussions with Zeus Production they decided to create something new- something that wasn´t just Hip Hop.
Digga Ras got in touch with Hüseyin Köroglu, a producer from Darmstadt (Phunk Mob, Besidos, Manhatten), the man who should transform Digga Ras' ideas.
Since that moment, Digga Ras and his album are in a continous transformation and development. There are now many different influences like jazz, pop, hip hop, soul and many more that became part of his new album „Vom Kind Zum Mann“ (from child to man), that describe his transformation and history.
Right now Digga Ras found his new home, a new family with his band „The Besidos“ who take him like he is and let things flow. Hüseyin and The Besidos showed him his true talents and so he could let go finally.
„If you don't let bygones be bygones, you won't have a future“ is written in the bible. This is why there is „Vom Kind zum Mann“ with a new Digga Ras.
