Farid Bang's third album (or his fourth, if you count his 2009 collaboration album with Kollegah) may not be called "Asphalt Massaka", but it certainly is a continuation of that 2010 album, even though there's a slightly stronger emphasis on storytelling this time around. Banger Leben Kürzer (the title track is a long diss of rapper Sido) features guest appearances by Afrob, Haftbefehl, Eko Fresh, and several others. The album reached number 11 in the German charts, making this the most successful album yet of this gangster rapper (and also of his label, German Dream).
