Biography

Brčko, Bosnia and Herzegovina (2001 – present)

Edo Maajka (born as Edin Osmić on December 22, 1978 in Brčko, Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a rapper from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Edin’s stage name “Edo Maajka” means “Edo the Mother”.

In 1992 when the Bosnian war started, Edo left his homeland Bosnia and went to Zagreb. After the war, Edo returned to Bosnia to study criminal law. He went to Tuzla and became a member of the hardcore rap group Diskord, later named Odbrana (Defence) [www.defence.ba].

Edo’s love is hip hop and rap and he first gained exposure on the radio station “Kameleon”, which featured his first freestyle rap. He is still a big part of the station’s “FM Jam” show. “FM Jam” gathered young talents to create the Bosnian rap group “Disciplinska Komisija” (Disciplinary Commission), which Edo is a member of.

After a year of studying, Edo quit his education due to financial problems and went back to Zagreb to meet his friend Shot (from the group Elemental), where they recorded his first single “Minimalni rizik” (Minimum Risk) and, a month later, “Mahir i Alma”. The songs were top hits on the Zagreb “Radio 101” station’s show “Blackout” and the response was enthusiastic. The demo “Mahir i Alma” became Kameleon’s hit of 2001.

Edo Maajka often raps about the contemporary political situation and the consequences of the Yugoslav wars, representing the Bosnian point of view, but also about the problems of the three main ethnic groups in Bosnia. For example, on “On je mlađi” he raps about the son of a Croatian War veteran who is engaged to a Serb girl.
