Edo Maajka

Edin Osmić, better known by his stage name Edo Maajka, is a Bosnian rapper, record producer and songwriter. His popularity brought his group, Disciplinska Komisija, which Frenkie is a part of, to the mainstream. In 1992 when the Bosnian War started, he left Bosnia and Herzegovina and went to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.

He took an interest in hip-hop when he was still in high school and began battling at the age of fifteen. He also recorded a few of his demos on his own, creating his own backing by beatboxing. He went to Tuzla and became a member of the hardcore rap group Diskord, later named Odbrana (Defence in Bosnian). The group became one of the best in the city of Tuzla and all of Bosnia. Their demo single “Odbrana ’99” (Defence ’99) was the hit of the year on the “Radio Hit” station in Brčko.

His rapping technique is described as having a perfect flow, which along with his varied subject matter helps him to connect with his audience, carrying a concept over a series of albums and got most praised for his ability to write brilliant lyrics.
