From a phantom to a phenome0non: The music label responsible for the German rapper Cro first noticed him online at the beginning of 2011 and then searched for him on Twitter.

According to the German singer Jan Delay, Cro is the "future of German hip hop". Cro, the man with the panda mask, is being awarded the BAMBI 2012 Award in the category of "German Pop" at the BAMBI Award Ceremony in the German city of Düsseldorf.
