Unlike most other Swedish rappers Ken attracted alot of controversy, because of his tendency to bring out social issues such as crime, jail, drugs and ethnic integration in his songs. Especially controvercial was his song “Spräng regeringen” (translated “blow up the goverment”), when he performed it at the Stockholm Waterfestival (just a stones throw away from where the royal family lives).
In this song he is perceived as promoting the murder of the royal family as well as the rape of princess Madeleine. Although he himself claims this to be a strictly rhetorical message, Swedish media and opinion were unforgiving. Ken was shunned from social events and popular media for a long time.
After being underground for several years, going in and out of jail, Ken has finally found his home - marked by the release of his sixth studio album titled ‘’Äntligen Hemma’’ in october 2007.
