In 1997 he began to organize weekly rap battles in a bar called 'Royal Bunker'. Freestyling there was the set-off for many now well known German rappers like Sido, Kool Savas or Frauenarzt.
Not much later he, Kool Savas and DJ MK1 founded the label Mikrokosmos, but due to disagreements in content Staiger and most of the signed artists splitted up from Mikrokosmos to create a new Label called Royal Bunker (like the already closed bar) in 1999. According to Staiger himself it was one of the most sucessful German Hip-Hop labels until he decided to shut it down in 2008.
In April 2008 he became editor in chief of the German Hip-Hop online magazine 'rap.de'. There he was known for his provoking interviews and ironic reviews, which many artists critized. In July 2011 he gave up his job at rap.de to continue his work as freelance jounalist, book author and activist.
On March 7th, 2014 he released a novel called "Die Hoffnung ist ein Hundesohn" ["Hope is a cul"].
