Hahnenkampf was a breakthrough for the Berlin-based rap group K.I.Z. It reached the Top Ten in Germany, propelled by the Southern rap-inspired "Geld Essen (Ausgestopfte Rapper)" and the rather dance-pop-oriented "Spast," both of which were modest hit singles. The group takes a number of approaches here but never sound out of their depth. One edition of the album adds a pair of bonus tracks.
