In August 2005, he released together with label mate Crackaveli the album Doppeltes Risiko.

In 2006 released D-Irie his first single "Was jetzt los!?!" from his debut album Live Dabei, which released in February 2007. The single was promoted by Warner Music Group. After the premiere of the music video, in October 2006, it stayed a short time #1 in public charts on MTV.
