US rap, particularly 50 Cent, is the biggest artistic influence on Sugar MMFK and has been a major source of inspiration for him. His rap career started in 2015 with the track "Verlorene Stadt" (Lost City), and no more than a year later he was using his opportunity as a support act for the French rap icon Booba. Finally in 2018 he signed up with the Bantu Nation label, which shortly afterwards was put under contract by Chapter ONE/Universal Music. With a new home label to his back, his EP "Allo Allo" and strong singles, such as "Gut vernetzt" (Well Networked) or "Trikot von Paris" (Paris Tricot), Sugar is coming on impressively and showing what German rap can expect of him in the future.
