Solo career

Shortly after the release of his single in January 2005, internal conflicts surfaced between Negativland and his two D-Men colleagues Lange Frans and Baas B who had now formed the duo Lange Frans & Baas B, so he decided to quit D-Men. A few weeks later, a Negativ made an online track and using an instrumental from 50 Cent, he dissed Lange Frans & Baas B. It was a time ramoant of diss recordings including many from The Opposites, Rmxcrew and Tuindorp Hustler Click (THC) dissing other rap acts. Another battle ensued between Negativ and THC in which Negativ recorded "Dacht je nou echt" ("Did you really"). Rapper Heist Rockah also dissed Negativ back. Negative answers him with the song "Hou je bek" ("Shut up").
