In Afasi & Filthy
Magnus Lidehäll started in a rap / hip hop duo alongside Herbert Munkhammar after they were classmates in Uppsala. Then the duo moved to Malmö for a few years and eventually. Lidehäll was the producer of the band and known as Filthy with Herbert Munkhammar (known as Afasi) as vocalist. Filthy released his first mixtape in autumn 2001 entitled Snus, Porr & Brännvin with rapper Spakur. This caught the attention of indie label/website Streetzone where they released the EP 1990 Nånting. The title track, that included a collaboration from Snook was released on radio in Spring/Summer 2003 charted in Sweden.
Based on this radio success, the duo signed contract with BMG, releasing the single "Bomfalleralla". But after disagreements, they broke the contract with BMG in Spring 2005 preferring to work independently. Their first single on their own label was "Le Parkour" followed by EP Jag kunde inte bry mig mindre. Albums Skruvat & choppat av Afasi in 2006 and Hotell Stress were released, the latter in 2 separate volumes in 2006 and 2007. Flacken is the band's critically acclaimed final album under the duo name. The duo continued under the name Afasi & Filthy until 2009 when they both decided to join Maskinen. Afasi also eventually became part of another singing duo Ansiktet. Afasy was featured as a guest singer in Grandmaster Flash album The Bridge on the song "We Speak Hip Hop". In January 2009, Afasi & Filthy won a Swedish Grammy in "Best Dance/Hip hop/Soul category" for their album Fläcken.
