Filthy released his first mixtape in autumn 2001 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 a 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. Fläcken is the band's critically acclaimed final album under the duo name.
The duo continued under the name Afasi & Filthy until 2009.
Herbert Munkhammar (Afasi) decided to join Maskinen. Afasi also eventually became part of another singing duo Ansiktet. He was featured as a guest singer in Grandmaster Flash album The Bridge (Concept of a Culture) on the song "We Speak Hip Hop".
Magnus Lidehäll continued with a successful producing and songwriting career, most notably writing "Cupid Boy" (2010) for Kylie Minogue, album Aphrodite. He co-wrote and produced (together with Bloodshy & Henrik Jonback) two songs "How I Roll" and "Trip To Your Heart" (2011) for Britney Spears, album Femme Fatale. He was also writer and producer for Sky Ferreira single "One" and Lena Philipsson single "Idiot". He has also worked with producers such as Bloodshy & Avant, Sebastian Ingrosso.
