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. His lyrics are not limited to politics - he often raps about youth issues like in "Saletova Osveta", the state of pop music ("Kliše"), bad rapping ("Slušaj mater") and others. Some of the songs have positive messages, such as the title track from his album "No Sikiriki".
